GUIDE FOR REMO PRESENTERS
ON WORLD EVENT CENTER

World Event Center is powered by Remo, a highly interactive, engaging all-in-one video conferencing solution we’ve been selling and serving since 2019. If it’s your first time using World Event Center, you will be required to create an account. We recommend you review the user guide to ensure you get the most from the experience.

Testing your system in advance is recommended to allow time to trouble shoot any barriers like firewalls, which arise from time to time. Because you are presenting, we also recommend attending a technical dress rehearsal to ensure you get maximum results, learn best practices and have practice before the big day.

FACTORS THAT AFFECT YOUR PERFORMANCE

  • YOUR INTERNET
    • Reliable internet is required for any high bandwidth activity like video conferencing
    • Test your internet speed now and if your internet is questionable
  • YOUR COMPUTER
    • Your computer has enough resources, and how to get around any cache problems
    • Your system is compatible and up-to-date
    • Your software is up-to-date

GETTING ON & OFF STAGE

We will invite you to be a speaker in one of two ways:

  • IN ADVANCE BY EMAIL — For this to work, you must accept the email invitation, login using the same email that was used to invite you. Once you accept this invitation, to join stage you simply turn on camera and mic when it’s time to join stage.
  • INVITING YOU TO STAGE DURING YOUR EVENT — You will be prompted as follows and select the “Turn Mic and Cam on”
Speaker Invite Pop Up that says... Host has added you to the stage. You are now on the stage, but your mic and cam are off. Would you like to turn on your mic and cam right now?

GETTING OFF STAGE

When you are ready to leave the stage, simply click the camera and mic icons once.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can I See My Presentation and the Event at The Same Time?

You will by default see only your presentation window, however there are work arounds:

  1. Use Second Monitor and have the event open in one window and your presentation in another
  2. Reduce size of both windows so you can see them both on one monitor
  3. Switch the window you’re viewing using the following commands:
    • Press ALT + tab (windows)
    • Press Command + tab (mac)

Can I practice sharing my screen?

Feel free to stop by our showroom 24/7. Sharing the screen is the same in both presentation mode and conversation mode.
