Guest speaker:  Chris Morgan, VP Sales and Marketing

The presentation will be about how  can help each station Enhance, Expand and Grow their station online.

We will discuss Five (5) points with how we can help each station:

1.       Expanding viewership capacity online.
2.       Expanding and enhancing storage online to include video on demand.
3.       Easy upload of broadcasts with automatic converting of files.
4.       Mobile and Smart Device Streaming.
5.       Live 24/7 channel streaming.


Lastly, we would like to offer the CTAM a free broadcast website which will allow the CTAM to use for any live streaming and archiving of broadcasts, in addition we will explain the benefits for both CTAM and individual member stations to use this site, bringing all broadcasts under one site for easy access by viewers.

Roundtable discussion: As decided, station fundraising initiatives and ideas, station promotion and favorite local show concepts. 

If you have any of these, bring your DVD and we will show it.
