Timers For Presenters during a Conference

(1/2) > >>

Corne Stapelberg:
I would like to know from members what type of method you use in your conference venues as A/V specialists to keep time during a presenter's presentation.

On Screen Timer?
The normal old method of a buzzer and some GREEN, ORANGE and RED LED on podium?

I will appreciate any feedback.

Regards
Corne'

The D'San limitimer seems pretty standard for corporate meetings. http://www.dsan.com/speaktimers/Limitimer1.asp. You can get a larger clock that can live by the confidence monitors that doesnt take up space on the podium.

We're using this: http://www.microframecorp.com/product/62104.html
for the first time today. It works well and pack into a very small, shippable case. We made tails with XLR to keep from having to screw in the wires each time.... We also use a laptop to a 26" monitor running http://www.blingclock.com/

Good luck! Post what you end up using. We are on a search for "the one".

They also make a dongle that interfaces their timer control with pc's for adding a clock on top of a downstage monitor. Great support too.

This showed up on a thread on the old Forums.  We've been using it A LOT and it works great.  Because it runs in a non-resizable 640x480 window, change the computer's resolution to 800x600 (most modern LCD monitors don't seem to like 640x480 that much).  We have a $250 netbook running it into $100 19" LCD.

Being able to run personalized messages is also REALLY nice (as long as the presenter doesn't mind it!).
