I try to go to conferences about things that interest me, but work (or money) sometimes gets in the way of that. So I find myself downloading video, or more often audio from various sites like IT Conversations. Unfortunately, for a bunch of audio/video geeks, the video presentations are often lacking. I’m guessing that it’s hard to video stuff in a lecture hall, or up on a stage without spending megabucks on equipment.
Also, the presentation when it comes to actual putting it on the internet is also often lacking.
But I do still have a massive amount of respect for the people who do record and upload stuff – this is just a call for a fresh idea (nicked from an EMD site…)
But – I have found (via our unofficial ambulance forum) the following way of doing it right.
It’s a very interesting talk about Advanced Cardiac Life Support, and the speaker is incredibly interesting (and he does indeed ‘tell it how it is’). The smart thing about this presentation is that the slides are on the right of the screen, while the video of him talking is tightly focused on the left of screen. You can also directly select where in the talk you want to start.
The only thing that I don’t like is that there isn’t a way to download it to your own computer to view offline. Any Open source geeks fancy creating an open source version of this software?
