Live from New York...It's Thursday...and Friday

COW Blogs : Mike Cohen's Blog : Live from New York...It's Thursday...and Friday
Today, after 6 months of planning, we executed our biggest live surgery event ever with 25 different cases from 23 hospitals including ones in Brazil, Japan, Australia, San Francisco, NY, Ft Lauderdale, Baton Rouge, St Augustine, Dendermonde, Poissy, Montpellier, Rome, Brussels and Chicago and two from Tijuana.

We started at 8:00am with Australia, which was nighttime for them. Now as the day finishes we have Tokyo where it is already tomorrow.

About 400 phone calls later it all went off without a hitch, or at least, without any hitches we could not handle

In addition to this I am overseeing the audiovisual setup, although there is a very capable tech staff from Citiview Audiovisual in New Jersey doing the actual operation.

Fri AM we are participating in a multi-point video conference with about 30 other locations around the world including some places I have never heard of.

The rest of the meeting is standard powerpoints and talking heads

Somehow I have found time to shoot stills with the DSLR, a few videos and update the Cine-Med Facebook page.

5-7pm cocktails and munchies, so it will be rewarded

Talk to you all later.

I have a passion for my job, which entails training for medical professionals such as surgeons, nurses and administrators, not to mention various industries.

Technology is great, but how you apply your skills is what pays the bills.

Years ago I canceled my Media 100 support contract upon discovering what a treasure trove of helpful advice can be found on the Creative COW website. I am proud to be a part of this fantastic community.

In my blog I talk a little about media production, a lot about travel and workflow, and occasionally about cooking, nature and my four-legged friends.
