The time allocated is not more than 10 minutes.
To ensure a trouble-free presentation, please follow the following guidelines for the preparation of your files:
The preferred platform for presentations is Microsoft PowerPoint up to version 2019. Alternatively, presentations can also be submitted as PDF documents.
For optimal use of the available screen space during projection presentations should be set up using an aspect ratio of 16:9 (PowerPoint page setup “on-screen show” or “widescreen” presentation).
Your files can be handed in on USB flash drives or USB hard drives at the speaker centre (MediaCheck). It is strongly recommended that all presentations are submitted and checked with the LUXAV staff at least 30 minutes prior to the start of the according session.
If you are planning to show videos during your lecture, please make sure that all media files are either available as separate files in the folder of your presentation on your USB drive or embedded in the PowerPoint file itself. Up to version 2007 PowerPoint cannot embed video files into presentations. Therefore, any video inserted into a presentation with an older Office version – or into a presentation originating from an older Office version – must be provided as a separate file.
We recommend that you provide your video files in one of the following common video formats (codecs) H.264, MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 as well as in the containers AVI, MPG, MKV, WMV, MOV or MP4. If other compression formats or containers are used, the respective codecs must be enclosed for installation.
Also, please make sure that only standard fonts available in Microsoft Windows 10 are used for your presentation. If non-standard fonts cannot be avoided, these fonts must be embedded into the PowerPoint file or (as a last resort) provided as separate files for installation.
To avoid certain incompatibilities between PowerPoint for MacOS and PowerPoint for Windows only images in JPG, PNG or BMP format should be used in the presentation when working with MacOS.
