McAuliffe inauguration to be Webcast live

Posted September 29th, 2008 at 1:49 pm.

The inauguration of Jane Dammen McAuliffe as president of Bryn Mawr College will be celebrated this week with a series of events including a picnic, performances, and presentations by student-faculty research teams. The festivities will culminate in a formal investiture ceremony at 3 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 4.

All alumnae/i and friends of the College are invited to attend the weekend’s events, but for those who can’t be there, the College will offer a live Webcast of the inauguration ceremony as it happens. The Webcast will be hosted on a server capable of streaming to about a thousand simultaneous viewers. The streaming video will remain available for a month after the event.

A broadband Internet connection, a contemporary Web browser, and a media player (Windows Media® Player 9.0 or later for PC users, Microsoft Silverlight for Mac users) are necessary to view the presentation. The presidential inauguration Web site includes a page that explains the system requirements in detail and offers a test of the technology so that viewers can make sure they are prepared to receive the Webcast.
