Briefing Theater, Continued
DURING THE PRESENTATION: After the welcoming of the audience and
the introduction of the speaker, the lights in front of the screen are turned off
to prevent glare on the screen and interference with the contrast of the
projected image. The light on the speaker remains on as does the light in
back of the audience. This remaining light slightly lessens the contrast of the
projected image reducing eyestrain, providing light for note taking, and
creating a social ambience within the theater.
AFTER THE PRESENTATION: After the presentation, the lights behind
the audience are turned off, the lights above the audience are turned on, the
light on the speaker remains on, and the light over the screen remains off.
Figure 5-13 shows the position of lights in the briefing theater.
