Audio Visual Group

End of Year AV Entries


The MCC Audio Visual Group meets at the clubrooms on the third Wednesday of each month at 8pm.

When there is a 5th Monday in a month, we have a 'No Rules; Show & Tell' meeting, also at 8pm. The aim being to share and get feedback on your project, and watch AVs from other sources. For more information about our 5th Monday meetings, click here.

The aim of the group is to promote an understanding of Audio Visuals (AVs) and to teach members how to make their own presentations. We also hope to encourage members to participate in the various AV competitions and exhibitions that take place during the year, particularly the AV section in the MCC  End of Year competition.

Topics covered will include all aspects of the creative process, including useful techniques and the hardware/software requirements to produce and present an Audio Visual.

If you would like to know more about Audio Visuals, come along to the Audio Visual Group meetings (see dates below). The coordinator of the group is John Spring and he may be contacted via email.


We define "Audio Visual" (AV) as a planned sequence of overlayed and/or merged images that have transition effects between each image. Also known as "Sound Slides" and "Diaporamas", an AV usually includes images, sound, credit text and sometimes maps and graphics.
