BACKGROUND 
http://www.tate.org.uk/modern/programmes/webcasting.htm 

Tate Modern are operating a pilot programme of webcasting. Webcasting is the term used to describe the real-time delivery of moving images, moving text and sound, over the internet.  Webcasting software allows internet audiences to listen or watch types of media, which have, up until now, been considered too large and bulky for consumption over the internet.  

Webcasting will operate in a pilot phase at Tate Modern within the Education and Interpretation department.  The objective is look to the future and thoroughly research and test possibilities, which may eventually form the basis of a long term plan for webcasting across Tate sites.  In this pilot phase, aspects of Tate's public events programme will be  webcast live to internet audiences, and events will be documented and  presented on Tate's website for audiences to view afterward.  Education and Interpretation materials will be developed for the internet, and  online discussion forums introduced. 

FEEDBACK 
This webcast is part of a testing process, I would very much appreciate it if listeners of the event can provide qualitative feedback that will help shape the character of live webcasts from Tate Modern in the future..
