Webstreaming: How to Access 2012 Fall Meeting Press Conferences (LIVE) via the Internet

If you don’t have it already, download the Adobe Flash player onto your computer (It’s a quick download), available for free from: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

At the time of the press conference, please go to the AGU press conferences web page: http://live.projectionnet.com/agupress/fm2012.aspx

If you wish to be able to ask questions (via chat only) you must first register by clicking 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.

On 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 and ask questions to the press conference speakers on your behalf. You will hear the speakers’ answers via the web page.

AGU staff will upload handouts, scientific papers, or other press conference relevant documents to the Virtual Press Room: https://fallmeeting.agu.org/2012/media-center/virtual-press-room/. These materials will have been provided by press conference speakers for reporters to download.

To report difficulties remotely accessing AGU press conferences, please do so via the chat. If it is not functioning, please email AGU’s press officers at news@agu.org or phone the Press Room at +1 (415) 348-4404 or +1 (415) 348-4405.

If, for some reason, the webstreaming does not work for a particular press conference, we will immediately put up a message on https://fallmeeting.agu.org/2012/media-center and will switch to make the briefing available via teleconference.
