Publicise seminar abstract
to all relevant mailing lists, put up local seminar advertisement posters.

1 hour Prior:-
Allocation of People:-
Check the SDR announcement
is still active.
and slide data streams 1 hour prior to seminar. Ensure other sites can
receive them without experiencing loss.
Check audio levels are
still set correctly and that all pieces of equipment are available.
Try to encourage the
speaker to stay in one place on which the camera is focused. If it seems
that the speaker is likely to move a lot during the talk, reduce the zoom
on the camera to accomodate this. Discourage the speaker from moving slides
around if document camera or other OHP projection device is being used.
Once the room has been
setup satisfactorily, and there is a break before the beginning of the
lecture, if possible tranmsit an audio stream, such as a music tape, at
the same level as the speaker's microphone to enable sites joining just
beforehand to adjust their local levels.
