Ten Powerpoint Tips

Ten Powerpoint Tips

Summer is in full swing, and we are starting to plan for our fall conferences! For those of you working on your own conferences and meetings, we thought we might put together a few pointers for constructing great presentation visuals.

We've compiled a list of Ten PowerPoint Tips to assist you when putting together your next presentation!  Here's a sneak peek...

Use a 16:9 aspect ratio to completely fill the screen. In versions of Powerpoint prior to 2013, the default is set to a Standard 4:3 ratio. If you need assistance in reformatting your slides to a 16:9 ratio, give us a call and we would be happy to help.

The minimum font size for any important text on a slide should be 14 point. If the text is smaller than that, it may not be legible for the entire audience.

Lighter text colors show up best over dark backgrounds, and vice versa. The closer the text color is to the background color, the harder it will be to read.

April Update: Chauvet Rogue R2 Series

April Update: Chauvet Rogue R2 Series

Greetings from The AV Company!

Great lighting is integral to the work we do and to the events that we produce. One group of lighting fixtures that we frequently use is the Chauvet Rogue R2 series! Featuring the R2 Wash and the R2 Spot, this series that debuted in early 2014 delivers upscale performance and advanced features that were previously unheard of at its price point!

The Rogue R2 Wash features nineteen 15-watt quad-color LED's, five zones of LED control, a unique lens design that allows for smooth color blending, and six distinct dimming modes. It also brags an industry-leading zoom range of 12°-49°, giving it the spread to cover very large areas.

The Parnelli Award-nominated Rogue R2 Spot also features high value and a range of colors and effects, along with its 240-watt LED lamp. It employs gobo-morphing technology and two variable scrolling color wheels to allow for an unlimited number of shape-changing and split-color effects. It also has a 3-facet rotating prism, motorized focus, iris control, and a frost filter.
