All educational grants are managed in compliance with relevant CME accreditation criteria and industry compliance codes.

Therefore there is a growing need to share knowledge and learning opportunities beyond the dates of the actual event and high-quality webcasting helps meet this substantial educational need. Materials are saved locally, but at the same time, can be distributed over the web to viewers around the world via a robust cloud server. Viewers can access the broadcasts using PCs, tablets or smartphones live (as streamed video) or later, on-demand as a webcast.

  • Video includes a video screen of the speaker/presenter during the session, PowerPoint slides (in sync with the speaker), and audio
