CMRC conference update: filming presentations

August 16, 2017

Experts in neurovirology and orthostatic intolerance take the lead at the fourth annual UK CFS/ME Research Collaborative (CMRC) conference next month, which will be filmed by Action for M.E.

Following feedback from previous conferences, presentations will be video recorded (subject to permission from individual speakers), and uploaded to Action for M.E.’s YouTube channel, rather than livestreamed.

The decision was taken after viewers said they struggled to read what was on presentation slides due to image distortion, and inevitable loss of image quality, caused by broadcasting live over the internet.

This year, Action for M.E. will record presentations using our HD video camera, and upload them to YouTube at the end of each day. Our aim is that, depending on upload speed, films will be available within 48 hours.

We will also post live updates about the event on social media, particularly the @actionforme Twitter account, using the hashtag #CMRC2017.
