How it Works

Follow these steps in order to position yourself for the best virtual experience possible.

STEP 1: Test Your System

Prior to logging into the virtual environment, you'll need to run a system test to ensure your computer has the recommended configuration to view the content inside the event. This includes bandwidth, browser, operating-system among other items such as screen resolution and cookie availability. If any of the tests fail, you will be notified gracefully with a suggestion to fix the related issue. For more detailed information, you may download our Quick Reference Guide.

If your network does not allow you to click a hyperlink inside a PDF document, here are the links mentioned in the Quick Reference Guide:

In order to enjoy the best virtual experience, we recommend that your PC/Laptop have a webcam and that you have used it in the past with perhaps, Skype. If not, we then suggest that you purchase a webcam from your local computer store or Amazon - the best webcam for its price we found so far is the Logitech C910 - try it out.

STEP 3: Learn to Navigate in the Virtual Environment

Here you’ll find access to all areas of the environment via the toolbar on the bottom of the screen: the Rare Earth Auditorium, Sky Terrace Networking & Media Lounges, Sponsor Meeting Rooms, Expo Pavilions with the Exhibitor Booths, and much more. You will need to learn to navigate in the virtual environment.

Virtual Experience Platform.


STEP 4: Connect with Content

Content Menu screens are where content is made available. Here you may access any videos, downloadable items, or URL links. Clicking on downloadable items, such as PDFs, can open them for preview or to download into your Virtual Briefcase. Videos can be viewed in the Video Player or they can be added to your Playlist to be viewed later. URL links will open up a new browser window for viewing.

The SCN is the central key to maximizing the virtual experience! Visit the Social Collaboration Network page in order to familiarize yourself with the many features it contains. The Social Collaboration Network is the centralized location for interacting in real time with our active user base and for downloading content from various virtual experiences.
