GUIDELINES FOR PREPARING YOUR VIDEO:

Presentations: duration 25/35 minutes (max) for 30/40 minute talks.

Video file format: mp4

Dimensions: Minimum height 720 pixels, aspect ratio: 16:9

The first slide should be an introduction slide that has your paper title, the presenter’s name, the authors’ names and affiliations and session title.

Showing a speaker view is recommended but not compulsory. If you choose to do so, please make sure the speaker window is in the top right corner of the screen and not covering slides.

TIPS FOR RECORDING:

  1. Use as quiet an area as possible
  2. Avoid areas that have echo
  3. Rooms should be fairly small
  4. Sound dampening with carpeting, curtains, furniture
  5. Hardline internet connection recommended, but if unavailable, a strong Wi-Fi connection
  6. Good headset with microphone close to mouth BUT away from direct line of mouth to reduce “pops”.  Avoid using default built-in microphone on computer.
  7. Perform a test recording of a couple of minutes and review the sound and picture quality, MP4 format, and bit rate before recording the entire presentation.  Make adjustments if needed.
  8. Review and check your video to improve its quality (e.g. removing awkward silences and start/stop bits). You can use the video recording and editing tools.
