Technology is sometimes the leading instigator at events or meetings. When the Internet connection is not strong enough or the power goes out what can you do?
What happens if the power goes out or the equipment is not working properly. We at DCCH will help you by supplying a support piece of equipment and switch it out as quickly as we can. It is always good to do sound checks to help prevent a last-minute issue. If the power goes out, be prepared to continue with the presentation without the equipment. So, it is good to know your subject matter real well for the just in-case scenario.
If the speaker’s hardware is incompatible with our equipment what can you do? Bring a couple of dongles – the white adaptors that connect Apple products to projectors as well as extra slide advancers. If the files are incompatible, they can be converted to pdf’s.
As with all technology mishaps, be flexible and remain calm. Think on your feet and know that the AV team at DCCH will be there to assist your needs.
