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.”
