This Year WaveFX provided all the equipment and crew to manage every aspects of the virtual symposium production from live filming, managing virtual presenters via zoom, vision mixing and encoding the stream to an embedded player.

Brian Dickie, Director of Research Development wrote: “ I wish to express my thanks for the outstanding service and support we received. The pandemic forced us to change from the traditional ‘face to face’ format we have used for three decades to a ‘virtual’ event at relatively short notice.

This meant an incredibly steep learning curve for myself and my colleagues, but our concerns were greatly alleviated by the professionalism and assurance exhibited by the WaveFX team, both in the run up to and during the event itself.

The Symposium could not have gone more smoothly. We have had tremendous feedback. Thank you for going not just one, but several extra miles”
