Creative Technology Online with GMA
Friday, 5 April 2002
Online Learning 2002 Europe - an event addressing the issues of online learning - was held recently at London’s ExCel. CT London was commissioned by GMA Events, the exhibition and conference organizers for Online Learning, to provide a total of seven bespoke areas split by their respective technology and conference requirements. CT had also been asked to service the needs of those who were to exhibit during the event, which covered visitors and delegates from some 38 different countries.

CT provided audio visual hardware including projection, lighting and audio, with feeds for use with translation booths for international delegates attending the numerous Q & A sessions. The company also covered two separate break-out rooms in the ExCel conference centre and one area in the main exhibition hall, again utilizing vast stocks of projection, audio, VT and data hardware. CT also provided a bespoke hardware solution in the main exhibition hall for two Software Simulation ShootOut sessions: these saw four different software simulation-building tool companies working in real-time creating content authoring tools focused on making the overall task easier for use. CT achieved the end result by providing projection, audio and switching capabilities for the contestants who each provided their own IT hardware.

Given the location of the event and its number of international visitors CT was asked to provide both dedicated and temporary Internet Connections in the main exhibition hall. CT also provided IT hardware for use in a one day Technology workshop. CT took an ethernet connection and distributed the feed to a party of 16 and one presenter in order to facilitate a live on-line training session. A further link from the presenters’ equipment was taken to the in-house projector for additional viewing and demonstration purposes.
