Environment 97 - The Worlds First Online Conference from RMR Design (With brief interview with my old boss Mark Smith)
The first energy saving conference ever, no physical travel was needed for any delegates or specialists you just needed to register and log in. This obviously kept costs, expenses and the carbon footprint worldwide down to a minimum, allowing over 80,000 people to attend without ever leaving their homes or offices. Pretty amazing for 1997!
I played quite a large part in this project from creating the icons to the Flash animations used, sponsor logo animations and then also filming and editing video content of various speakers to specialist edits submitted from companies/speakers ready for the conference.
All videos were also encoded by me too, delivering video in those days took a lot of optimisation as most people were still on 14k dial-up modems - SOOOOO VERRRRRRY SLOOOOW!!!
