Update: The live stream is, in fact, in 720p HD, but not by default. Click the cog to change resolution if you’d like to watch in HD.
After some technical challenges we have secured the neccessary technology to bring you the rest of the conference live on YouTube. So please click here and tune into Day Two of the proceedings as they happen.
The technological costs of providing this stream are not insignificant, and we will ask for a donation (suggested $20 per day) to help pay for the A/V gear and the Internet connection. As a backup source, we are streaming the audio via the AVfM Live365 radio station, which you can tune into as an alternative or in the case that the video feed is not reliable.
There is a Twitter feed, @icmi14, for the conference, from which our Media Director, Janet Bloomfield, will be tweeting relevant updates. We invite listeners/viewers to tweet questions for the speakers during their talks, and we will endeavour to have one or two asked on the floor.
Additionally, select tweets will be displayed on the video feed (but not who they’re from). Remember that this is live television that bears AVfM’s logo, and constructive tweets free from profanity are more likely to be chosen than others.
Please note that the following program is subject to change without notice.
