Remote Press Conference Access

***AGU is once again webstreaming press conferences.


Instructions for accessing press conferences online:

  • If you don’t have it already, download into your computer the Adobe Flash player (It’s a quick download), available for free from:
  • At the time of the press conference of interest, access this AGU press conferences web page with your browser:
  • If you wish to be able to ask questions (via chat only), you must first register (click the “Register” link at the bottom of the page). Please register using your real name (without spaces). Once registered, you need only log in to take part in subsequent press conferences. (AGU is not offering telephone call-in to 2011 Fall Meeting press conferences.)
  • At the press conferences web page, you will see a webstreaming window on top that will show, to the right, the speakers’ PowerPoint slides in real time (including video), and, to the left, live video of the speaker table and panelists. You will hear audio of the press conference via the same web page (To expand the webstreaming window to full screen, click on the icon in the lower right margin of the window (Esc key to cancel)).
  • Below the webstreaming window, you will see the chat window. During press conferences, an AGU staff member will monitor the chat line and read your questions to the press conference speakers. You will hear the speakers’ answers via the web page.
  • Next to the chat window, you will see another window to which AGU staff will upload electronic versions of handouts, scientific papers, or other relevant documents. These materials will have been provided by press conference speakers for reporters to download from the window.
