At 15.00 EST (20.00 in UK and Portugal) on Monday, July 12th we will be giving a live broadcast from Studio 33. This is the venue for the Essential Magic Conference on July 15th, 16th and 17th.

We want to take this opportunity to give you a behind the scenes look at the conference venue and the technology we will be employing during the world’s first digital conference for magicians.

The broadcast will be delivered in three different video streams: HD, 1mb and 500kb. The tour will take no more than 15 minutes of your time.

You will see for yourself the high quality video that will be broadcast during the conference. And you will have a chance to test the chat facility used to ask questions and receive answers from the Speakers during the event.

For those who have registered for the conference it is a chance to test your computer system and internet connection. For those who have been waiting for an insight into how the event will look, maybe this demonstration will convince you to join us. We hope so.

All you have to do is visit our website at 15.00 EST (20.00 in UK and Portugal) on July 12th. We’ll open a portal to our live broadcast.

Our web address is www.essentialmagicconference.com.

Make a note in your diary now. 15.00 EST. 20.00 UK & Portugal. Monday July 12th.

At_la_magic_history_tour_of_john_gaughan's_shop_nov_2009_photo_by_jerry_slocum_-_copythumb I could not find the video either her in CA USA.
This webpage was very slow to load until the last few minutes.
Very disappointing if it was ony a brief red label.
Hope all goes much better in a few days.

Img_0534thumb Hi,

I live in Montreal, QC Canada. Which as far as I understand is 15:00EST(3pmEST). I was unable to see anything what's so ever & I'm very concerned that the same thing will happen again for the 3 day EMC this coming weekend on July 15th, 16th and 17th 2010.

I'm on a Intel Mac Pro(2x2.266 GHz Quad-Core with 16GB of RAM) running the latest version of Snow Leopard OS X & I'm using the latest version of Safari as a browser. (I also have FireFox browser that I can use)

I also have Windows XP (Home) installed on the same computer (Via BootCamp + on separate Hard Drive(i.e.: walks, talks, is a PC)) if that would work out better...

Please let me know... I'm also going to send this to your support email address...

Thank you,

Regards,

A slightly bitter, but I'll get over it as long as all works out for the actual EMC ;-),

Default-avatar-thumb I wasn't near an internet connection and contemplated traveling to one to catch this... glad I didn't. I have to say, I was a little worried when the site crashed last night after their email went out announcing the schedule. Would be nice if the organizers would comment on bandwidth issues.
Scott Macaulay, about 8 years ago
Img_0465thumb Is there a video uploaded of it?
Jayden Redden, about 8 years ago
Dwynthumb I like many others was here at the specified time, only to not see any indication of the video. I even came back periodically through the hour and night still didn't see anything.
Craig Alan, about 8 years ago
096_m_buxtonthumb Pretty frustrating. I visited the site on time, FINALLY saw the red bar with the link, clicked on it, only to load the stock "EMC" ad - no live video. Hope the bugs are worked out by Thursday or EMC is going to crash and burn. Will be hard to recover from that. Like I said, I hope they get it fixed. This is good for magic.

14247_168194721644_585241644_2916189_6389082_nthumb it'd be good for everyone if there's a clock on top of page, so no need to go other site look for time.

Default-avatar-thumb I have left the live stream open on my desktop this afternoon. Video looks great in all three resolutions for me. Looking forward to the conference.
Scott Macaulay, about 8 years ago
Dwynthumb Why wasn't this link/address made known to us in an email?

I hope I am not let down come conference time, but all things are pointing in that direction.
