Media Box

Citizens Oversight has two media solutions:

Large Media Box

STAGE 1
During the events at Occupy San Diego in 2011, COPS provided a box with battery and inverter on a little red wagon, which was pulled around for weeks. It provided not only power for recharging phones and cameras, but also a place to put personal items. A secure deposit box was mounted to one end.
STAGE 2

More recent configuration with multiple-microphone holder at San Onofre closure celebration

After the main occupy was completed in San Diego, the box was reworked into a media lectern box, with internal power, mixer, and PA system:

  • The box itself is 3 ft tall (not including wheels) and about 18" wide and deep. But it is heavy.
  • The battery must be removed to turn it on it's back for transportation.
  • The PA system can be used on a battery charge for at least five hours.
  • Speakers can be placed on side handles and rolled on the sidewalk.
  • Grill cloth changed to black and speakers painted black.
  • This media box is still in this configuration as of May, 2015, although improved with a better multiple microphone holder.

Small Media System

The Large media box is heavy and difficult to transport. COPS invested in a small media box.
