To provide some assistance for presenters, Presenter Notes can be assessed
through a simple button press on the iPad in the presentation tab, as described
in the Presentation section of the Remote App
Manual. Presenter Notes are associated with
presentation playlists rather than individual datasets. There are several ways
to add Presenter Notes to your playlist:
The SOS Remote App allows presenters to load datasets, orient the sphere, and
control the datasets from an iPad. This is the main way presenters will be
interacting with SOS. The SOS Remote App offers many features for enhancing a
live presentation. These include annotation, zooming, layering, and splitting.
The annotation and [zooming][remote-app-zooming] tools
can be accessed through the Presentation icon. The [layering
interface][remote-app-layering] can be accessed through the numbered circle
next to loaded dataset. To become familiar with the app, check out the SOS
The simplest presentation mode is Autorun. In the Autorun mode, the system
displays each dataset for a default three minutes. This is a good option when a
docent is not available to lead a presentation. If this format is used, it’s
nice to have supporting audio or text so that the audience knows what they are
looking at. There are audio tracks available with a limited number of datasets.
Many sites give live presentations with the sphere throughout the day, and in
between presentations leave the sphere on Autorun. Autorun can be turned on in
the Settings tab of the SOS Remote App or in the SOS Stream GUI.
