Movie collection

We are continuously updating and expanded our library of edited movies of operations and techniques which you may find interesting and helpful. The movies have been prepared for streaming over the internet using a fast ADSL/broadband/cable connection, that is the movies will play as they are being downloaded rather than having to wait for the entire recording to be downloaded first. The movies can also be streamed using a slower modem connection, but the download time will be slow and the movies may be jerky. The movies are in Flash format which is included with most browsers (e.g. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, etc), so there should be no difficulty in viewing them. You can download the latest Flash Player from here; you certainly need to install Flash Player if you do not even see an image below. If you continue to have problems, please let us know.

Many of the theatre recordings were made with the system descibed in Computer capture. Movies have been edited by Nikos Bournas, Pietro Gambadauro, Nikos Papadopoulos and Adam Magos.

You may also find MoviePlus useful as it includes step-by-step instructions.
