Mike Walsh Technical Requirements

Mike requires the following equipment to be provided:

  • A digital data projector with either a VGA or DVI connection. Mike will supply the connecting dongle for his laptop.
  • 5mm sound lead to play audio from the laptop.
  • Mike will supply his own Logitech remote, but if the AV desk is far from the stage, we recommend you make available a USB range extender that provides line of sight coverage to the stage.
  • Mike’s presentation is anamorphic, and can display in either 4:3 or 16:9. If your display is widescreen, we recommend that the source image be stretched to fit.
  • A fold back screen (a monitor so Mike can see which slides are onscreen from anywhere on stage).
  • Mike doesn’t require a lectern, and we recommend you keep the stage as clear as possible for him to move around.
  • A wireless lapel or headset microphone (preferred).
  • A bottle of water on stage, and prior to the performance warm water/tea with honey and lemon.
  • Mike will bring an ATOMOS Ninja field-recording device to take a copy of the live video feed of the presentation. He can connect to your vision desk via HDMI or HDSDI (assuming there is embedded audio).

SOUND CHECK: ​Mike ​requires a ​30-minute sound check. 

NO PRESENTATION SLIDES IN ADVANCE: Mike is unable to provide his presentation in advance, due to the usage rights on the video embedded in his presentation. NOTE: It is not possible to run the slides from another machine.

SLIDES AND VIDEO: Mike’s presentation includes both images and video, all embedded into a Keynote deck that operates from ​Mike’s MacBook Pro​.
