The big news around Cadmore this month is that we were able to announce our partnership with the American Medical Association (AMA) to build and host a video broadcasting tool focused on improving infection prevention and control education (something I think we all have a renewed appreciation for!). The AMA team has been brilliant to work with and we’re excited by the possibilities of incorporating live video embeds onto multiple channels at once.
This month also sees us hosting the NISOPlus22 conference. This is our third year sponsoring this event, which has blossomed into a really engaging virtual-only event that actively promotes international perspectives on technology and information dissemination. Don’t miss our own Violaine Iglesias’ panel on Non-Print Formats: Future Possibilities, happening tonight! (But if you don’t feel like staying up late, you can still view the prerecorded video.)
Also this month, we’re participating for the first time in the ASAE Virtual Event Platform Demo Days. Registration is free, and includes two days worth of platform demos and Q&As.
Finally, if you haven’t checked out the Resources section of our website recently, we’ve collected the best case studies, articles, videos, surveys, and more from the community on streaming media, virtual and hybrid events, and accessibility.
Let me know what other resources you’d like to see!

On the events front, we continue to make improvements for our clients and their attendees. For hybrid sessions, we have introduced unified Q&A and polling functions for simultaneous use for both in-person and virtual attendees. Our schedule display can now include custom, metadata-based filters that help attendees find the right sessions before and during the event. Event site homepage widgets are now configurable to show only to authenticated users or users with certain credentials.
We monitor the world of video news so you don’t have to.

The Marketing Insider
Meet the Cadmore Team:
Chris Sumners, Senior Software Engineer
What about your professional background made you a good fit for Cadmore?
In a word, versatility. I started from a design background, then moved into software development, which gives me the ability to not just design something but then take what I design and make a fully functioning product from it. During my professional career, I have worked with a wide array of industries. Each industry required a different approach. So I feel what makes me a good fit for Cadmore, is my versatility; from design and UI development to complex data processing solutions.
What do you find most interesting and/or challenging about your role?
What I find most interesting is the ability to work on all aspects of a solution. Each new feature has its own challenges. Each we have been able to overcome, either by myself or with input of the rest of our amazing software engineering team we have here at Cadmore.
