1. Steven will bring his OWN laptop with him.
# NOTE â€“ If an A/V technician will NOT be in the room during Stevenâ€™s speech Steven is happy to operate himself.Â In order to do this Stevenâ€™s laptop will need to set up so Steven can access it easily during his presentation.
2. Appropriate SCREEN and SOUND to go with the DVD.Â Whenever possible the screen/s should be large enough and positioned so all audience members can see them.Â The sound needs to be heard clearly by all audience members.Â A screen and sound check prior to the event is recommended.Â Steven will arrive early to do this.
3. Either a lapel microphone or a cordless handheld microphone.Â Using either a lapel or cordless handheld microphone please ensure the batteries are new or fully charged.
4. LIGHTING.Â Â When possible the lighting in the room should be dimmed during each of the 3 DVD’s.Â This, in turn, means the lights need to go back on after each of the 3 DVD’s.
5. LECTERN.Â Â A lectern can be useful to store props but is NOT REQUIRED.Â Â If a lectern is being used please try to prevent it blocking any audience member’s view of the screen/s.NOTE # It is NOT necessary to obtain a copy of Steven’s DVD prior to the event.Â Steven prefers to arrive early at the venue to run through his DVD with the AV tech.
NOTE # Steven also brings his presentation on a DVD and a USB as a back up in case of technical issues.Â Having a DVD player and switcher set up to use in conjunction with Stevenâ€™s laptop is a good idea if possible.Â Sound and Vision cabling is then required for both DVD player and Laptop/s.
