Event Amplification at IWMW Events: The History
For several years we have provided a live video stream of the plenary talks at IWMW events. This decision was made for several reasons:
- To maximise access to the talks given at the event.
- To ensure that a wide audience was aware of the event and, potentially, attend the event the following year.
- To enhance the accessibility of the event for those who may not be able to attend for a variety of reasons.
The background to these decisions has been explained in a video clip which is available on YouTube and is embedded below.
Event Amplification at IWMW 2013
BUCS, the IT Services department at the University of Bath will be providing the video stream. They will be using the Panopto service for this.
Since Panopto requires Silverlight support in order to run there will be a need for remote viewers to check that their local computer has Silverlight installed.
The Panopto service will capture/stream screen capture and MS Powerpoint display from the lecture room PC. A test page (illustrated) is available which can be used for testing.
Further information about the video streaming, including the URLs which will be used and the times the video stream will be live is available on the IWMW 2013 Web site.
