The AV team at the Joint Annual Meeting would like to help you make sure your presentation is a success. Presentations are becoming increasingly sophisticated and demanding, hence a certain amount of technical advice is necessary in order to minimise the potential technical risks. We use the latest generation of professional equipment for your presentation. To ensure that you can make optimum use of this, we have set out the following tips and advice for you below.

Speakers’ Service Centre (AV check, media acceptance)

We set up a Speakers’ Service Centre (SSC) in a separate room with acceptance points for all the presentations. Our presentation technicians then check each presentation for format, correct representation, smooth animations and functioning films. The equipment at the acceptance point is the same as the equipment in the lecture rooms. Once the lectures have been checked, they are transmitted to the corresponding control rooms via the internal network and started on the presentation PC there. At the same time, a copy is kept on the server as a backup. This copy is reliably deleted after the event.

PC workstations are also available for speakers for last-minute editing work.

Don't use hyperlinks to start the movies, don't use movies from the internet like youtube.

If some movies in a presentation do not work during testing, we will convert them to a format that PowerPoint accepts through a video converter programme.

If movies and/or audio files are embedded in your presentation, make sure you bring the movie/audio files to the Speakers’ Service Centre in case the files need to be converted.

How to transport your MS-PowerPoint file to the Speakers’ Service Centre (SSC)
