Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT EQUIPMENT IS SUPPLIED WHEN WE HAVE A TECHNICIAN AT OUR EVENT?


We arrive on site with our audience voting keypads and associated hardware. The system runs on one laptop (plus a backup), which we supply. This laptop is dedicated to voting only. If you’re running another PowerPoint presentation, this needs to be run on your own laptop. We then provide a VGA or HDMI switcher to switch between the laptops (if an onsite switcher is not already available). Please note: we do not normally include any other A.V. equipment (i.e. a screen or projector) as these are usually already in place but these can be quoted for on request.




HOW LONG DO YOU REQUIRE ON-SITE TO SET-UP?


This depends on the venue and the number of keypads at your event. We can usually set up our audience response system in 60 minutes for up to around 150 – 200 keypads. We always like to allow hour and half to be well prepared.




WHAT DO YOU NEED US TO PROVIDE YOU WITH?


Before your event

  • Your slide template/branding (ie background and logos)
  • Event details – times, location, onsite contact.
  • Details of the audio visual set up in the room or a contact person at the hotel or AV company.
Up to 3 days before your event (latest)
  • Word or Powerpoint docuemnt with your quesions and answers
    (Must not be a PDF)

    Changes and additions can be made onsite.
2 hours before your event or rehearsals at the venue Our technician will need:
  • Some space in the room to operate two laptops, ideally in sight of the presenter or very close by
  • An HDMI screen input to either the main projector or a switcher, provided by the venue or AV provider
  • A sound feed to the room audio system (if you require countdown sound effects)
  • A 13A power socket.




CAN WE MAKE LAST MINUTE CHANGES?


Yes we can add or edit questions onsite and during the meeting. Often questions can be decided during meetings and voted on.




CAN THE KEYPADS EASILY GO MISSING?


An advantage of our keypads is they are compact and lightweight. If the distribution of the pads is managed correctly and announcements are made, then it is unlikely keypads go missing. We will help and assist you on the day.




CAN WE SEND MESSAGES TO THE PRESENTERS OR SEND TEXT FEEDBACK?


Our Reply keypads which we provide when you have a technican do offer text based feedback and Q&A. We do howver have an additional product where users can text in feedback with their smartphones. Contact us if you would like further infomation about this.




DOES THE SYSTEM REQUIRE VENUE WIFI?


No! The system works on its own unique radio system so it will operate in any venue, whether the venue has Wifi or not.




HOW MANY MULTIPLE CHOICE OPTIONS DOES THE KEYPADS ALLOW?


Our keypads allow up to 10 multiple choice options.




WHAT DO THE QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS LOOK LIKE ON SCREEN?


The system is MS powerpoint based so you can create your slides to match your other presentations and branding. If you have a techncian at your event we make up your slides for you. We have some examples below:
