  1. Streamcast installed a high definition capture system that individually recorded all elements of the presentations including 2 auditorium cameras, data output from the projection system and roving cameras that recorded vox pops and interviews. Our dedicated producer and editors edited packages featuring all of the days presenters while maintaining the agIdeas 2011 design with time to spare.

    Following the delivery of the daily highlight videos our production team started to prepare the gala dinner video, this enabled us to delivery a copy to the client before they left MCEC.
  2. Streamcast created a new agIdeas online portal based on designs provided by Cato Partners. Advanced searching and filtering functionality was introduced to the portal to allow users to search by keyword, discipline, topic, speaker or event. 53 on demand webcasts were created in real time and uploaded to Akamai each night. GeoIP blocking was introduced to ensure the client content access restrictions were in place.

    The entire site was ready by Monday following the event only 2 business days after agIdeas 2011 had concluded.

    In addition to the 2011 content, previous content from 2010 was also added to the site, creating a fanstastic ongoing resource for the design conference to utilise.
