Good content, short lecture format, remote access, great!

I think the online streaming format really works, it should bring costs down, more environmentally friendly...should be used more often now.

Good of Infomed in developing this on-line teaching format so quickly, I guess this may be the future.

Excellent - the streaming service was excellent in audio and video. There was no lag between the delivery and the AV content.
Consultant Radiologist
I must say that I was very impressed, given current Coronavirus issues, at late notice sorted out online streaming of the conference that worked well. The organisers showed a good understanding of the situation. Well delivered and well done Infomed.
