The Adelaide Convention Centre has installed new web streaming capabilities in all its major meeting venues.
ACC chief executive Alec Gilbert said this would assist in boosting interaction at events enabling delegates to participate in sessions from anywhere in the world via remote access, including active participation such as asking questions, voting and completing questionnaires.
The Adelaide Convention Centre now has web streaming available for events throughout the venue.
“We have been working with some of the global leaders in technology development to offer these services,” Gilbert said, “Our vision is to use the latest technology and provide our customers with a simple way to choose and customise technology to make their events unique.”
Gilbert said the web streaming facility would be managed in-house and this means more competitive pricing and packaging for event organisers as well as providing them with the opportunity to explore new revenue streams. This new initiative follows hard on the heels of the recent announcement of the ACC’s own app building capabilities for events.
This web streaming capability means conference organisers have the opportunity to record and catalogue sessions and have them available on demand to delegates via the ACC’s in-house Wifi or externally via the internet. Delegates can also interact with presenters after sessions have finished they are also able to catch up on any sessions they may have missed.
An added bonus for many conferences that publish technical papers and display research by way of poster board displays, now the electronic web-based alternatives give delegates the opportunity to read this material wherever they choose – in the hotel, at the conference, or when they return home.
The web streaming equipment is also portable, so it can be used throughout the ACC.
