So you can convince online with a good picture and sound!
With modern event formats, you can optimally reach your entire audience. And that regardless of the location. We offer virtual events with a sophisticated platform and a hassle-free process for your customers.
- An upright posture and a centered position in the image ensure a professional appearance.
- A frontal perspective of the speaker is advantageous. To do this, bring your camera to eye level if possible.
- In the lower part of the image, your shoulders should still be visible, while in the upper part of the image, there should be a little space to your head.
- Remember to mute your smartphone and other possible sources of interference. Notifications on your PC can be disabled in Windows via the Notification Wizard in the Info Center.
- As a speaker, avoid direct sunlight and other very bright light sources. These will result in large bright spots on your face (overexposed).
- As a speaker, make sure that the lighting from the front is even. Turn on the room lighting, adjust the position of your workstation if necessary, and avoid dark shadows on your face.
- Also consider the position of the sun at the time of the event. A workplace may be suitable in the morning, but unfavorable in the evening.
Microphone and Audio
- Test your microphone with a test video recording. Film yourself speaking.
(You can use the standard Windows app “Camera” for this).
- As a speaker, you should use a headset with a microphone or an external microphone if possible. These often have better audio quality than the internal laptop microphones.
- Avoid loud speakers, as they can cause feedback with the microphone.
- Make sure you have an even background with no bright colors or even a window.
- Avoid sources of interference that may occur in your environment. You can mute the phone, close windows and doors, close the email app, mute the doorbell, etc.
PC and Internet
- Make sure that your laptop is supplied with sufficient power.
- Close unnecessary applications and browser tabs to avoid overloading your PC. This could result in jerky videos.
- Make sure you have a good WLAN signal strength and test your Internet speed with a tool like Speedtest.net.
At least 4 Mbit/s should be achieved in download and upload.
- As a speaker, be sure to dress appropriately.
- You should clearly stand out from the background with your clothes.
- Avoid check patterns and small patterns. These can cause image flicker problems with the camera’s Bayer sensor.
- The speaker’s face should be clearly visible and not obscured by hair.
- For shiny reflections on the face, a little concealer can help.
We wish you much success!
If you are still unsure, we will be happy to help you with a live training session.
Book the speaker briefing as
a live training.
We also offer our speaker briefings as comprehensive online live
This allows us to brief you and your speakers with direct feedback. In the online training, we can also familiarize the speakers with the software/video service used (e.g. vMix) and address any questions.
A great advantage of live training is also the interaction between the presenter and the speaker, who can thus practice the presentation situation in advance.
