In order to transmit your presentations to the virtual audience without errors or disturbances, there are a few points to consider. Just like the creation of a good speech, thorough preparation is the foundation of your virtual presentation. Below we clarify some of the points you should consider before you participate as a speaker in a virtual event.
Wired Internet connection
Make sure that your device is connected to your network via a cable. We do not recommend a connection via W-LAN, as there may be short term disconnections.
No VPN connection
Make sure that you have no active VPN connection. In most cases, connecting to virtual networks slows down your internet speed and can often lead to disconnections due to set protocols and other restrictions.
If you are participating from a corporate network, you should ensure that the use of the required tools is enabled. This means the programs as well as the network protocols (e.g. RTMP for live streams). Please contact your administrator for this.
Use of a headset
To ensure that you are clearly understood and that the sounds of your device are not picked up by your microphone, we recommend using a headset. The microphones in headsets usually have noise and reverb suppression implemented, which is often not the case with integrated laptop microphones. This greatly improves the sound quality of your transmission.
Lighting/positioning of the camera
Make sure that you are clearly visible. Position yourself in the center of the camera field. Avoid light sources that shine directly on your camera, such as a window behind you. Provide room lighting that primarily illuminates your face so that you can be easily recognized.
Test your setup
To avoid surprises, test your setup in advance to ensure the quality of your image and sound transmission, as well as the functionality of the applications.
