Audiovisual Equipment and Function Set Up
The following equipment and set up will be provided for presentations:
Sharing Your Electronic Presentation Before the Forum
Please complete the Copyrighted/Proprietary Release Form. We will not post material that is copyrighted, proprietary, or contains pictures that people do not agree to post to the public on websites or in public conference materials. We will post all resources and presentations to the website to make them available to participants at the Spring Youth Forum.
The following requirements and tips are meant to guide and help your team in developing your presentation, especially for meeting electronic compatibility requirements. We hope that these will help make your team's presentation a success!
Software Availability and Requirements
Please Note: It is the team’s responsibility to comply with compatibility requirements at the Spring Youth Forum to ensure that a presentation will function onsite and is professional. The requirements and information should assist in ensuring that all presentations will function properly during a team's presentation. There is very little time for audiovisual challenges, which could also disrupt another team’s arranged presentation schedule. Again, these guidelines and tips are available in order to ensure each team's success! Ultimately, it is the responsibility of the team to create a functioning and professional presentation. Unfortunately, audiovisual equipment does not always function perfectly - as we have all learned. Like all professional speakers, please have a Plan B to move forward with the presentation. Conference staff are available only to assist teams.
All computers are PC (rather than Mac) and will be running Microsoft Windows XP.
LCD projectors do not project at high resolutions, so downsample (reduce the file size) of your pictures using menu options. This will make your file size more manageable for your team and us. (See how to do this in the Tips and Assistance section below.)
All presentation materials must be compatible with one of the following applications that will be available on all conference computers:
* Microsoft Office 2007
* Windows Media Player 12
* Adobe Reader XI
* VideoLan VLC Media Player2.1

PowerPoint Software Information - Reducing Your File Size
PowerPoint: Packing and reducing pictures - Compress your pictures! (LCD Projectors are not high resolution, so it only makes the file size large and cumbersome by having high resolution pictures in your PowerPoint or similar type presentation).
Adobe Slideshow - Great for a Picture Slideshow and Runs Much Smoother
Adobe PDF: Making a Slideshow
For electronic presentations without multimedia, Adobe PDF Slideshow is a great format to use and runs well on Adobe Reader 9.
