Oral Presentations will be self-recorded 10 min talks. Recorded materials will be made available to all delegates for on-demand viewing during live congress hours as well as for a period of 2 months after the meeting.
The format for PowerPoint presentations is 16:9.
For the preparation of your OFP presentation(s) related to the Virtual ECP 2021, you need PowerPoint 2013 (or newer).
PowerPoint has an integrated recording function, so you do not need an external programme.
Video and lighting
Start your PowerPoint presentation and, under “Slide Show”, select “Record Slide Show”. The recording mode opens.
Select “headset microphone” as microphone (term might vary). If you would like to record with your webcam, select “Microsoft Camera Front” and activate the camera via the respective button. Click on the “Turn camera preview on” button. The camera image should now be shown in the lower right hand corner. Make sure that important parts of the slides are not covered by the webcam image.
Start the recording by clicking on the “Record” button. After a short countdown, the recording starts and you can start your presentation. Go from slide to slide as usual by hitting the arrows or clicking on the respective buttons to the right and left. The recordings are saved sequentially on the respective slides, so you might want to make sure not to talk while switching slides.
Be aware that the mouse cursor is not recorded. If you would like to highlight something, use the pen or the marker in the live mode.
End your presentation by clicking the “Stop” button.
Navigate to the first slide of the presentation and view the recording (“play from beginning”). Should anything not be satisfactory, you can delete the recording individually for the slides and record again. Select “clear recordings” in the upper right section ("X") – then either select "clear recordings on current slide” or "clear recordings on all slides". Start a new recording, without changing slides, as otherwise existing recordings are overwritten. Save the new recording by clicking on the “Stop” button again.
If you are happy with your presentation, you need to publish it:
Export as video: Select “File” -> “Export” -> “Create a video”. Here, you can define the resolution. Please make sure to export the video in HD (720p). Via the button “Create video”, you can export the recording as an .mp4 file.
You will be able to upload your presentation through your congress account starting 14 July 2021.
