Audiovisual Information

The Speaker Ready Rooms will be equipped with HDMI LCD projector and preview screen. Speakers must provide their own laptop.

 

Virtual Speaker Ready Rooms (for virtual-only sessions)

Starting in early June, you will be able to schedule appointments for support or "speaker ready rooms" through the ProjectionNet presentation management site.

"Speaker ready" technicians will be able to assist you with:

  • Reviewing a test video to confirm audio/video/lighting quality. Please upload your test video prior to your scheduled appointment.
  • Creating your narrated video.
  • Computer settings for Zoom use during the meeting.
  • General questions regarding best practices for a virtual session.

In early June, the Helpdesk (aomspeaker@projection.com) will also be available for general questions via email without the need to schedule an appointment.
