Remote Demonstrations

Interested in me doing an interactive Remote Demonstration (IRD) over the Internet for your club?

Isn’t technology wonderful! It is now feasible for a woodturning chapter to have an interactive remote demonstration (IRD) over the internet with me operating my own lathe in my shop and presenting to your chapter anywhere in the world.

I would be interested in working with your club to make this happen. I have done remote live demos for clubs across the USA since 2018. The biggest constraint for the club is a broadband internet connection. With a broadband connection and a laptop or tablet they can connect to their large screen TV or projector. The complexity is on the demonstrator’s side. The club also needs a champion willing to work with me to run a test well in advance to make sure we are both fully operational. If you have some interest, let’s talk!

Late breaking news! With the COVID-19 pandemic and clubs forced to cancel meetings, we all have had to adapt. I am able to host an Interactive Remote Meeting (IRM) for your club. Similar to an IRD but members with a PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone can participate from home. Can you imagine a show and tell where members at home can actually show their latest work from home? Or watch a demo in the comfort of their home and ask questions?

Please contact me if you are interested in an IRD or an IRM for your club.

Demonstration Topics

Advantages to a club:

  • The opportunity to see a demonstrator they could not get to their club meeting.
  • Lower costs because there are no travel costs.
  • No setup or tear down of equipment
  • Often, better video than a club gets with their own camera operator and equipment because the demonstrator typically has better lighting and video setup than a club might have. I use three or four different cameras for my remote demonstrations.

Advantages for the Demonstrator

  • Using their own equipment with more options to show tools and have backup if there is some type of equipment failure
  • No travel
  • No packing and unpacking

I want to acknowledge all of the leadership and coaching provided by Alan Zenreich on this new approach to demonstrating.
