    Thank you very much for this opportunity.
    But the sound is too quiet for Ustvolskaya!
    Could you put the microphone closer to the speakers please?

    We’re working on the sound, hope it is better now!

  3. Andrei zegt:

    Thank you. At the moment I hear no change. The background noise has almost the same volume as the speech itself. And the sound from the speaker’s macbook is a lot louder. Hope, it will get better!
    And there’s no possibility to see the speaker’s face?

    It’s better now, thank you!

    It’s great to be able to see this symposium online, and I thank you for making it available. But unfortunately it is very difficult to understand what is being said with the low sound level and the reverberation of the room. The playback volume has to be put at the maximum to hear anything, and then whenever there is any accidental sound close to the computer it is extremely loud, which is very annoying and even dangerous if one is using headphones. I would really recommend trying to get the direct sound of the presenters’ microphone from the mixer into the computer line input (or using a soundcard if necessary). The computer’s built in mic just doesn’t work well enough for these situations. The presentations are very interesting, but it’s very frustrating to only be able to understand a fraction of what’s being said. ;)

    We do have some sound problems indeed, which unfortunately we cannot fix right away. Apologies for that. The YouTube-version no doubt will be much better.
