Event Production: Aspect Ratios Explained

See pricing


Do you manage speakers and their slide deck presentations? 

Do you think 16:9 and 4:3 are referring to screen size on your audiovisual quotes?  

Do you think letterboxing is similar to shadow boxing?  

If you answered YES one or more of the above questions, this is the course for you. 

After the venue, audiovisual is often one of the largest budget items. Yet, planners and their AV teams often fail to deliver eye-popping visual-aids created by paid or volunteer speakers.

Producing events is a fine art, especially when it comes to presentations that involve the coordination of audiovisual production fundamentals, including speakers, presentations, graphics, and many other components. This course will empower you to retake control of the presentation design process and ensure your speaker slide decks match your technical requirements to create visually appealing sessions.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understand the key principles of aspect ratios and how to use these principles in your production design for a “wow” effect
  • Determine production design guidelines to ensure your presenters create slides within a standardized format that are also visually appealing to your audiences
  • Gain a thorough understanding of how to work with speakers in preparing presentation decks for an event
