Talk recording

Recording with us: instructions & dates

We’ll be using this platform for talk recording: https://riverside.fm/. You can pick a slot for recording via the links:

Such recordings usually takes up to 40 min if it’s a full talk and 20 min if it’s a lighting talk.

Self-recording: instructions & deadline (less preferable flow)

!!! Full instructions on how to record the talk can be found HERE.

  • Deadline: May 13
  • Duration: full talk – 20 minutes; lightning talk – 5-7 min
  • Recording format: we need two files from you to synchronise them both during post-production (example):
    • 1 – desktop with your slides recorded with audio
    • 2 – camera recorded with audio
    • After the recording the AV team will synchronize two files and prepare the final version which will look like this video.

  • Folder to upload the files: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1GMkAqYO_9htHbwiu5qLShV1LL-j1dr-A?usp=drive_link
  • Files format: videos should be in MP4 or MOV format.
  • Size of the font on the slides, code: it’s important to use readable size of the font as part of the audience will watch the stream. 20-24px should be ok. Here is the example of readable code https://youtu.be/d9nVcDLueMI?t=764 but the font can be even bigger otherwise during the stream remote audience will be struggling to read the slides.
