Remote Presenter Tips for Livestreaming and Web Conferencing

  • Connect 15 minutes prior to the scheduled start time to confirm your webcam and audio are ready for public broadcast.
  • If you are using a webcam, be mindful of your surroundings. A backdrop or blank wall is the best possible background. LPSC 52 virtual backgrounds are available for download.
  • Be aware of your lighting — lighting can make your video look great or washed out. Light sources should come from in front of you or from your side to best light your face.
  • If available, use a headset as this will ensure that you are heard by the listeners. If no headset is available, try to stay close to the microphone on your webcam or phone.
  • Silence your device notifications.
  • Look directly at your webcam rather than your presentation.
  • Mute your microphone when not presenting.
  • Watch your chat window for feedback from the audio/video technician.
  • Relax, take a deep breath, and begin. Good luck!
