[from Charles Fulton, GSA AV Director]
Dear GSA participants,
I’m writing about the audiovisual arrangements at the GSA conference in Houston, Texas, this year.
Each meeting room will be equipped with an LCD projector (“beamer”) and screen. The A/V connection is HDMI. If you are coming with a Mac laptop or any other computer which does not have an HDMI port, please ensure that you also bring an adapter. If you don’t have an adapter or accidentally forget yours, the GSA will have a limited number of adapters available at the Registration Desk.
Each of you should bring your own laptop or other presentation equipment. The GSA does not provide laptops, and you can’t plug a USB (“thumb”) drive into our projectors.
A limited number of rooms are also equipped with a powered speaker and subwoofer: 327, 333, 335A, 335C, 336B, 342, 343A, and 344A. These are the only rooms where the GSA has provided sound. Connection to your laptop or other device is with a standard headphone-style cable.
Wireless internet access will be available from Thursday throughout the conference space, including in your presentation rooms. The network name is Hilton Meetings and the access code is hilton2022.
If you would like to do a tech check with your presentation computer we'll be glad to give you a hand at the Registration Desk any time between sessions. The Registration Desk will be located on the second floor (1. OG).
If you encounter a problem with the audiovisual equipment before or during your session I’ll do my best to assist you. Please send a text message to the phone number on the card next to the projector, noting the meeting room you’re in and including, if possible, a brief description of the problem (e.g. “the projector won’t turn on”). There will be an information card in each room with that phone number.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns that you may have.
