How to present at the EU PVSEC 2020 in 3 easy steps

Step 1 – Webinar “How to use the presentation platform of the EU PVSEC 2020 online”

Speakers in a session of the upcoming EU PVSEC 2020 online, were invited to participate in our Webinar “How to use the presentation platform of the EU PVSEC 2020 online” on Wednesday, 12 August, from 14:00 – 15:00 CEST.

This webinar was designed to familiarize you with the general technical requirements for your speech and to give you guidelines for a successful online presentation. We would like to help you eliminate any doubts and give you the opportunity to clarify any questions and concerns you may have regarding your online presentation.

The webinar was conducted by Dr. Heinz Ossenbrink, who guided through the platform called Streamyard. From easy one-click access to the activation of your microphone and camera, make sure that you can access and use the platform without any problems. Supposedly simple things can appear very complicated under certain circumstances, that’s why we want to make sure you feel comfortable with using Streamyard.
This broadcasting platform, besides the official EU PVSEC Conference platform, is accessible only for speakers and chairpersons. Regular attendees will watch the presentations via the Conference platform.

How does the communication with the Chairpersons work and how do you answer the audience’s questions? We will provide answers to all your questions and show you how to use the platform and all its functions.

Step 2 – Personal technical check

The webinar serves as an overview of the presentation platform. Additionally, to ensure a smooth presentation and to give you the opportunity to try out the functions yourself in advance, we also offer personal technical checks for the Streamyard platform. These will cover the technical requirements you need to ensure a smooth session.

The technical checks will take place from:
24 August - 28 August
31 August - 04 September

Each speaker can select a time slot in which he/she can try out Streamyard him/herself, guided by an operator. Information about registration for the technical checks will follow soon per e-mail and on our website.

Step 3 – Final check 15 minutes prior to your presentation

To be on the safe side on the day of your presentation and to take away the nervousness about technical problems, we kindly ask you to be present 15 minutes prior to the start of the session for a final check. Please keep in mind that this check can`t substitute the personal technical check from step 2.


To be fully prepared for the EU PVSEC 2020 online, we strongly advise you to take advantage of all three preparation sessions. The webinar is recorded and the video will be available on the EU PVSEC website and depending on the attendance, we might offer an additional webinar date.

Technical recommendations for the EU PVSEC 2020 online

Finally, we recommend to meet the following technical requirements:

  • A 16:9 PowerPoint format for your presentation is recommended.
  • A current version of Chrome or Firefox must be used to participate. MS Edge or Safari currently do not fully support the WebRTC protocol used.
  • Make sure that the WLAN signal is sufficiently good, or even better, connect your computer to the network by cable.
  • For good audio quality, a headset or external microphone should be used.
  • Restart your PC 15 Minutes before the technical check.

We are looking forward to seeing you at the Webinar.
