The scientific community thrives on the exchange, communication and dissemination of scientific results, ideas and projects. This takes place at conferences, meetings, symposia and workshops without which the scientific landscape would be inconceivable. Current research is presented at conferences and networks are established; conferences are identity forming for a scientific community.
In addition to printed conference proceedings, conference presentations are often streamed live, recorded and the videos published online. This increases the visibility and impact of an event and provides for an enormous increase in the target group.
"More than half of the hosts and organizers see a need for action when setting up virtual platforms, which are regarded as supplements to real events.“
(Meeting & EventBarometer Germany)
Scarce human, technical or financial resources as well as the lack of sustainable, durable infrastructures are the main problems faced by conference organisers. The TIB Conference Recording Service provides a solution. The new recording service offers conference organizers from science and industry a comprehensive package from recording, live streaming and publishing in the AV-Portal.
