Setting you up w/ Zoom before the event

Zoom Audio Preferences for best sound  (Desktop/Laptop):
Open Zoom app
Settings 
Audio 
Uncheck “Automatically adjust microphone volume 
Advanced (same page bottom right) 
Disable “Suppress Persistent Background Noise”
Disable “Suppress Intermittent Background Noise” 
Exit out 

Zoom Video for best viewing: 
-Make sure there’s light
-All light should be front-facing you and not behind you
-If using a cellphone place it down somewhere to avoid a shaky screen (eye level)
-If using a cellphone place it in portrait mode
-If using a cellphone, once we are live swipe left for gallery view (allows you to see everyone) 
-Change Zoom name to your Artist name for the competition 
-Make your space look nice 

 

Ideal setup:
-Laptop with high-speed wifi or connected directly to the computer via an ethernet cord. This is not a must but the smoother your visuals are the better you’ll come off
-Cellphones connected to wifi will also work
-Always use headphones for all devices (wired preferred) 

 

*Please follow these tips to make sure the event is enjoyable for everyone.
