plan resserré

vous n’aurez que les vidéos des conférenciers filmés en plan resserré. C'est-à-dire qu’aucune diapositive PowerPoint n’est visible sur ces vidéos.

Sorry, I don't know much about photography and this is quite urgent!
Thanks in advance

tight shot
Explanation:
The use of the term is not really appropriate here, but clearly what they mean is that the video of the conference is framed (i.e. the shot is composed) to only show the person speaking, and thus unfortunately you cannot see anything of the audio-visual material they may be referring to.

'tight shot' is the corrrect technical jargon, though you will probably need to re-phrase the sentence to read something like '...the videos of the speakers framed tightly'..'
