Using Technology

It seems any mention of technology is obsolete before you finish reading the sentence. However, you should be aware of some generalities when you use different devices, especially from a technical perspective. As a visual presenter, you should be adept at using different pieces of equipment, although you will probably get comfortable using one particular device for most of your presentation needs.

The traditional devices—overhead and slide projectors—are not difficult to work with from an operational standpoint. Typically, the big technical question is “How do you turn this thing on?” For electronic presentations, you have to know a bit more than the on/off switch when you work with the current crop of LCD (liquid crystal display) projectors.
