Playing your Photo and Video Slideshow to a live Audience


Now that you have created your fantastic slideshow, you are ready to play it at an event to your live audience.

I hope you have included in your checklist of things to do this very Important task.

Testing the equipment at your intended venue.

I cannot stress the importance of testing your DVD or USB at your event.

Doing a full run of your slideshow will save you a lot of stress, in the event of a technology failure or hiccup.

These are some possible technical faults that can occur, if you do not test the equipment.

Incompatible File Format

If you have a HD (High Definition) video format, you need to ensure that the equipment is able to take a high quality format.

Age of Equipment

If you play your DVD or USB and it does not flow smoothly or does not play at all, this is a sure sign that the equipment is old.

Dirty Lense on DVD Player

Overtime, the lense of a DVD player can get dirty and wear out. When the lense is dirty, it has trouble reading your DVD disk.

These days most venues strive to keep up with technology, it is still a good idea to test and fully run your video slideshow, well in advance before your actual event.

You will be happy, you spend that extra time, testing your slideshow for your special event.
