NCC is proud to announce a strong start to 2012 with the award of a new contract to provide webcasting and on-site support services for the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) Division of Medical Arts (DMA).
Specifically, NCC will provide ongoing on-site webcasting support, as well as closed captioning, transcription, and annotation services for NIH events taking place off the main campus. Among other responsibilities, NCC personnel will set up equipment, test connections, continuously monitor live webcast streams, troubleshoot issues and questions, and maintain a robust webcast archive.
Webcasting is one of the primary mediums that NIH uses to publish and share information with national and global research communities. The thousands of hours of video available in NIH’s webcast archives are evidence that NIH began leveraging this technology well before many of its contemporaries. NCC’s technical experience and shared dedication to pursuing innovative approaches in the dissemination of information position us to well as we strengthen our partnership with NIH.
We are excited by this opportunity to implement world-class webcasting solutions for NIH and add it to our roster of satisfied clients that includes such federal agencies as the Department of Energy, the Department of Health and Human Services, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). NIH DMA was NCC’s first client upon our inception in 2002 as a requestor of voice-to-text services, and a decade later our relationship has proven to be productive and enduring. In 2012, we will add new depth to our experience with the provision of webcasting support services.
