Presentation to VIDEO
Basically, it's a matter of getting a
video signal out of the
video, not computer
monitor video) and
hooking that to a VCR/DVD player. There are special
video boards that include
this option, or there are outboard boxes called scan converters that convert
monitor video to NTSC.
Keep in mind that what you get on a regular TV will be of lower resolution than
what you see on screen, and the colors won't be as crisp and saturated.
Followings are the methods
of converting PPT to Video
For best results you should
bring your power point project in our studio. We do these projects every day.
You can purchase the software but remember you will have to go through:
Learning Curve: This
depends on how quickly you will understand the software interface.
You have done every thing right according to the specs and instruction but
your computer is
crashing during a DVD burning process (blue screen). Or it locks up when you
were going to perform a certain step.
Remember, the software manufacturer will never mention these challenges.
OR: You successfully
were able to burn a DVD, but now audio and video are out of sync. or there
audio on the dvd.
Or the DVD shows you a black frames where you entered dissolve effect in PPT.
If you have not successfully
tried any of the above methods before and you have a deadline to finish a job,
we can definitely assist you to finish your project.

any further question.
Here are the following steps that you should do before going into more elaborate
Look for the video output jack at the back of the computer (RCA or Y/C). Some
computers do have this kind of jack.
Step2: If you
have this jack connect it to the Video input terminal of the VCR in which you
want to record. Most of the new Pentium computers
are coming with Audio output jacks which is called mini output port.
Step3: Take the
Audio output from this jack through appropriate
connector cable. And connect this cable to VCR. Make sure your VCR is set to
the connected input .
Step4: Connect the VCR output
(antenna or RCA) to the input terminals of your TV. And switch the TV to
But if you don't have the computer with NTSC Video output, then
we have another expensive method.
THROUGH THE SCAN CONVERTER:
You should buy scan converters only and only
if you are doing projects more than once.
converters are not cheap. They range from $150.00 to $15,000. If your
project doesn't require lot of resolution, you may buy these scan converters
from the local stores like CompUSA or Microcenters. These converters are hooked
at the monitor output terminal of your computer at the
back. Through processing, they convert Computer output to Video output. Some of these cheap converter boxes have S-Video
output for higher quality. But remember, our VCR should also have that type of
output.. Otherwise use the regular RCA type output.
The audio portion is recorded with the audio
output coming directly from the audio card in the computer. You will take line
output. If you have prepared pictures project that
you want to display in the wedding reception or the event doesn't need high
quality resolution, I would recommend buy the one that comes with RCA out put
from CompUSA. They might be less than $100.00
AverKey converters are less than a $100.00.
SHOOTING A COMPUTER MONITOR
If your presentation is for professional job
or you think quality of the project is important, don't use this method.
WARNING: (This is an amateur
method of putting computer projects on Video. We do not recommend it)
Here is the procedure:
Place your desktop or laptop in a very dark
room. Have your camera in front of the monitor.
Make sure your monitor and camera are at
right angle to one another and edges of your monitor
If your camera have iris control, change it
to allow ambient light to pass through the camera. So that the white areas of
the image don't become too white.
If you are getting flickers while shooting,
it will be difficult to remove specially with the consumer cameras. In the
professional camera there is an option of changing the frequency setting that
match with the monitor frequency. When the flicker is gone or you see no flicker
on the monitor, its mean the monitor and the camera are synchronized and you can
shoot a good image.
A. Always record in the camera
B. Better the format of the camera,
better will be the image.
C. Place the camera as close to the
monitor as possible and both should be in the same line.
D. Room should be as dark as
possible. The outside light is the enemy of the light that is coming from the
RENTING A BOX:
If you think none of the above methods work
for you, rent the converter and do it yourself or call one of AV companies to
get the service.
