Technical Information -
"PowerPoint" on Dell-PC (Windows XP and Office 2007) and overhead
projectors are available in the plenary and section rooms. You may
connect your own computer to the projector if you prefer; a technician
will be available to assist you with the use of the Student Union
Optimal conditions of presentation files:
Microsoft PowerPoint (if you want to use other software, please bring
it with you), with a resolution of 1024*768 XGA in your slides. Do not
use a font smaller than 12 point. If you use animations, please embed
them; if it is a special animation, send the codec also and bring all
the files on a CD or flash-drive to the meeting.
Personal laptops and/or equipment:
Students, faculty, staff and customers are allowed to bring in their
own equipment (at their own risk). Any setup and running of the
equipment is the responsibility of the person providing the equipment,
not the Student Union. All cables must be Gaffer taped down for safety.
Please be aware that the Student Union equipment is the priority for
the Audio/Visual technicians and, if help is needed, the on-duty
technician may help if they have time.
Macintosh VGA adapters:
Manufacturers do not have consistent VGA adapters across product lines.
We are unable to stock every type of adapters for all of the different
laptops on the market, or for all of the different types of computers
faculty, students and guests bring with them from all over the world.
There are far too many types of adapters for Student Union technicians
to know specifically which adapter you would need for your personal
computer. If you do not have a VGA adapter that connects your computer
to our data projectors, monitors, or systems, you will need to
contact your computer manufacturer or a local or online distributer.
