WEBCAST OF SYMPOSIUM


The ability to attend all Meetings, or alternatively, all Meeting sessions, is virtually impossible for the busy medical professional. Therefore there is a growing need to share knowledge and learning opportunities beyond the dates of the actual event and high-quality webcasting helps meet this substantial educational need.
Materials are saved locally, but at the same time, can be distributed over the web to viewers around the world via a robust cloud server. Viewers can access the broadcasts using PCs, tablets or smartphones live (as streamed video) or later, on-demand as a webcast.
Kenes offers two types of webcasting options:
 Video includes a video screen of the speaker/presenter during the session, PowerPoint slides (in sync with the speaker), and audio
• Digital Imaging includes PowerPoint slides with audio​
  • Support will be recognized on the home screen with ˝Supported by... ˝ and a company logo only
  • Support will be recognized in the Industry Support and Exhibition section of the programme, on the event website,  mobile application and with signage during the event.
