A press event introduced the Exhibit with a row of very professional looking cameras and members of the media. I was pleased that a small camera was at the end of the row and I was able to film the event.

We have prepared  video using the new Microsoft Silverlight program. When you move the curser to the top of the small screen there are thumbnails for each of the talks and we shortly plan to put text into the tuumbnails. In the meantime the sections can be viewed independently in the following paragraphs. The Video
