Teamed up for hi-tech gatherings
CORPORATE events which use digital and live-streaming technology are no longer the exception to the rule.
At Adelaide’s Science Exchange, home to national science channel RiAus, businesses are taking advantage of its state-of-the-art equipment and facilities.
RiAus general manager Bradley Abraham said it had a fully equipped digital television studio which local businesses used for conferences, annual general meetings and corporate events.
“Rather than a simple Skype conversation, or Google hang-out, with our full service broadcast studio we can pro- duce a complete package that is more like something you would watch on television,” said Mr Abraham.
“Video streams can be safely secured behind password systems for confidential meetings, or made open to the public for wide broadcast on our website.”
Adelaide organisation CRC CARE – Co-operative Research Centre for Contamination Assessment and Remediation of the Environment – has used The Science Exchange’s live-streaming technology to better communicate with its industry partners.
Beveridge, CRC CARE’s education and training program leader, said it had 28 partners globally such as BHP, Rio Tinto and the University of South Australia.
“Our partners help to fund our environmental research and development projects,” said Mr Beveridge.
“It’s vital that we are able to regularly communicate the findings of our work to allow our partners to implement these into their work practices.
“The technology facilitates live question and answer sessions, discussion panels and valuable networking opportunities that are far more costeffective than the difficult logistics of a roadshow.”
