    Lecture and Demonstration Capture

    eTV Studio A and Studio B are equipped to live stream and record presentations and demonstrations that cannot be easily captured from a computer web cam. These are generally demonstrations that are more complex to show and may require multi-angle viewing and close-ups to be comprehended by the viewer. This service is available on request and subject to space availability. Note, eTV also has limited capacity to record demonstrations and presentations on location if required. This service is only available on special request due to staffing and resources required.
