IMPORTANT! There is a strict file limit of 500 MB.
All presentations must be loaded in the SPEAKER READY ROOM COMPUTER (NOT the session room computer) the day before the presentation.
NOTE: If arrival issues preclude a presentation from being loaded the day before, then it MUST be loaded no later than three hours before the presentation’s session begins.
All session rooms will be equipped with
1 Mac OS X v10.5 Leopard with Office/PowerPoint 2008 and Keynote 2008
1 Windows Computer, with CD/DVD drive, PC-XP Professional with Office/PowerPoint 2007
SVP will not provide additional equipment – for instance, no ZIP drives, VHS or video players, overhead projectors, 35mm slide projectors, additional computers or projectors will be provided.
If you are using an embedded video in your PowerPoint® presentation, or QuickTime® on the Mac, please follow the instructions located below.
Saving Your Presentation on CD or Memory Stick
If your presentation includes linked files, such as databases, spreadsheets or videos, be sure to save those in the same folder on the CD or memory stick, as well. Test your presentation on a Mac machine running Mac OS 10.4, if possible, to ensure your presentation runs properly.
You can embed the fonts into your presentation by following these steps on the following page:
Name the folder with your name, session number, date and time on your CD, i.e. Susan Paleo, Session I, 10/15 2:00. MAC users please add “mac” to your powerpoint’s name. You must bring your CD or memory stick to the AV technician in the Speaker Ready Room the day before your session begins. Your program will be loaded to the network in the Speaker Ready Room so you can access it from the podium. We have a great many speakers scheduled for each day, so you MUST visit the Speaker Ready Room well in advance of your presentation to ensure you will be able to access your files during your presentation. The Speaker Ready Room technician will review your presentation with you to ensure that everything runs as you expect.
If you have any questions about your speaking arrangements or other aspect of the SVP meeting, please contact the SVP Business Office at (847) 480-9095 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Speaker Ready Room
Once you arrive at the meeting, you will be directed to the Speaker Ready Room to load your presentation.
Please do not expect to visit the Speaker Ready Room to upload your file just before your presentation.
Presenting Your Work
Once your presentation has been loaded to the system in the Speaker Ready Room you will be able to access it from the podium in your meeting room. In the Sessions, the technician will bring up your presentation. You will have control of your presentation and can advance the slides at will. The cursor will be your laser pointer during your presentation. Once you have finished with your final slide, a final click of the mouse will return the screen to the session slide for the next speaker.
Thank you for your support of the SVP annual meeting.
We look forward to seeing you in Raleigh, NC!
