HOW TO RECORD A POSTER
AUDIO RECORDING YOUR ePOSTER
PREP YOUR POSTER BEFORE YOU RECORD:
ACRM does not require or provide a specific template for posters. Your final poster file can be uploaded from your Poster Portal in PDF, Powerpoint, JPEG or Word. If you choose to use a template, please be aware that the e-poster system will not trim anything from the edges. Whatever is on the final file will show in the Online Program when uploaded.
There are no technical limits to posters but the typical aspect ratios are 16X9, 9X16 or 4X3. We recommend an image resolution of 1080p or higher, but any size is acceptable.
Your ACRM Poster Portal is available 24/7 for your convenience. Your poster presentation can be up to 17 minutes long. If your poster qualifies as “enduring content” and you would like to make it available to registered attendees seeking Continuing Education contact hours post-conference, your poster must be 15-17 minutes long.
1. Log into your Poster Portal.
2. If you have not already done so, click the task to “Upload Your Poster” (PDF, PPTX, JPEG, Word)
3. Then click the task to “Record Your Poster Audio.”
4. If you wish to provide attendee handouts, you may upload them at this time.
5. A little closer to the conference, a task will appear in your poster portal where you can request that a live Q&A Chat be scheduled during your presentation. Although not required, we highly recommend this interactive feature. During the scheduled time of your presentation, attendees can type-in their questions and you can respond in real-time from your poster portal. Watch for more details coming soon.
To get started, we recommend first watching the step-by-step tutorial (above) to become familiar with the recording process. You may also wish to download the PDF of instructions for convenient reference.
All presenters are required to register for the conference through the Registration portal. Register early for lowest rates and enter your Presenter Discount code at checkout for an additional 20% OFF your total purchase.

BEST PRACTICES RECORDING TIPS
1. Chrome is the preferred browser for this recording.
3. Stand if possible while recording to stay alert and energized.
4. Be focused on the delivery and not the technology. Practice and get familiar with the technology and your recording environment.
6. Review all ACRM training or platform tutorials available to you in advance.
FOR BEST AUDIO
1. Avoid using your laptop microphone whenever possible. Earbuds with a microphone are usually better and there are many affordable external microphones available.
2. Don’t turn your head away from the screen when recording your audio – the audio sounds best when you talk speaking directly to the screen.
3. We suggest wearing earbuds or external headphones to avoid your computer audio creating a ‘bounce back’ effect on your audio recording.
4. Use humor, inflection and intonation in your presentation. Avoid simply reading from your script.
5. Get close to the microphone. The further away, the more the ‘chamber echo’ effect will kick in.
6. Playback the audio to ensure the equipment you are using is good quality.
1. Use a small, carpeted room with low ceilings. Avoid a room with a lot of hard surfaces or larger rooms.
2. If recording at your residence, try to use internal rooms to avoid public noise (sirens, birds, wind chimes, construction or other bleed thru audio disturbances). Basements are ideal if they are carpeted.
3. Try to restrict colleagues or family activity (televisions, doors slamming etc.) Let them know the importance of your audio environment for the time you are rehearsing and conducting your final recording.
4. Avoid clutter in and around you. Go for the minimalist affect. This will help your focus, feel secure in your delivery and will avoid audience distraction.
