Over the last 3 days Stream UK has worked with Rich Media Agency to deliver the Maudsley Annual Review Conference. The Institute of Psychiatry were due to present a new educational initiative which highlights and synthesizes key advances in psychiatry and will serve as an annual landmark of progress in the field.
Stream UK were employed to encode the footage of the five symposiums and provide live slide synching to deliver the sessions with Stream Connect, Stream UK’s webcasting tool. However, due to the closure of UK airspace as a result of the ash cloud from Iceland’s volcano, a number of the key speakers were unable to make it to the Kings College location.
Our Stream UK team came quickly to the rescue providing short tutorials on how to present using a webcam and our webcasting tool. This allowed those speakers that were unable to travel to present from various locations around the globe allowing the conference to go ahead as planned.
