ANZBA Electronic Posters Electronic posters will be displayed during the ASM on four monitors. The posters will rotate automatically and each poster will be shown for one minute. Delegates will be able to pause individual posters to view them in more detail. There will also be an index to allow delegates to find an individual poster. Posters will be displayed in theme groups (Care, Prevention and Research). Care posters will be displayed over Wednesday and Thursday (due to the volume) and Prevention and Research posters on Friday. During morning and afternoon tea on Wednesday and Thursday and morning tea on Friday, there will be informal discussion sessions with authors of posters. The website will be updated with discussion session details. Electronic Poster Template All posters will have the banner graphic and control bar: please use the template to prepare your poster. There is no specific criteria for the layout within the white space – use it as you wish. Media All video and audio files must be embedded in your slide. As you will only be sending a single PowerPoint slide file, do not have links to any external media files. All videos, audio and animations should be set to auto play and finish within the one minute display time. We suggest you only embed one video or audio file and use animation sparingly. Keep the background simple and subtle; use a light coloured background with dark text. Do not use WordArt, reflections, drop shadows, 3D, semitransparent fills or textured backgrounds; they are unpredictable when moving slides between systems and are not necessary. We will check embedded video and audio files work. We will not be able to check animation. The preferred fonts are Verdana, Calibri or Arial. Keep it Simple Make your poster clear and clean: avoid unnecessary clutter and “special effects” that do not add value. Delegates will also be able to view posters via the ASM website and App. A QuickTime Sample Video set to Autostart The original video was in mp4 format, 30 seconds long and 2.1MB.
