Want to find out more about Live Webcasting?

Not everyone can afford to come to the conference. We have found it really valuable to webcast live on the Internet because that reaches people at their homes. The webcast allows us to capture those videos and make them available on our archives so people in the room can watch them again and people that missed them the first time can watch them from wherever they are in the world.
