Audio Visual and Room Layout Requirements
To ensure that the presentation is a success, we have outlined below the audio/visual requirements necessary for the session(s). Should you have any questions or concerns about this information, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 1-800-227-5510.
Computer Projection – The programs are presented using Microsoft PowerPoint. The speakers use an Atek® remote advance for slides. Any compatible data projector is acceptable provided it has a brightness of no less than 2500 lumens. A power strip is required for the computer. The dimensions of the screen should be commensurate with the size of the room. As an example, we recommend no less than an 8′ X 8′ screen for an audience of 80-100.
Audio – A wireless lavaliere microphone is preferred. Should the speaker require connection from the computer to the sound system, we will let you know.
Internet connection – To enhance the impact of some programs, we may ask for access to a high speed Internet connection on the platform for the purpose of illustrating some of our points. If this is the case, a wireless or hardwire connection are both acceptable with a minimum of DSL speed.
Lighting – Lots of light is preferred on the audience to encourage interaction. For this reason, it is critical that the screen be positioned in such a way that ceiling lights or wall sconces do not wash out the image when projected.
– Chevron style seating
is preferred in both theatre and classroom arrangements, which allows better access to the audience and allows them a better view of the speaker and the screen. See diagram below.
Front of Room – Please provide a small, cocktail-sized table at the front of the room on which notes, props, and a laptop computer can be placed.
