Does anyone know if the EMC can be viewed on an iPad or is it PC compatible only?

Cheers

It can definitely be viewed on IPAD
Message: Posted by: Luis Sirgado (May 22, 2012 08:08AM)
Psmagic, the EMC can also be viewed on IPAD and MAC.

I wasn't able to view the test broadcast for EMC since I was working but after that I tested it from my ipad and requires flash player.
So I don't think EMC 2012 will be available on the iPad.

Is this true or I'm missing something?

During the test they specifiacly said you could use an I-pad. It may be worth going through thier Q and A or asking on thier facebook/twitter feed

Last year they had the feed detect if one were using iPad and provide a different streaming option. I assume that worked, I believe there were a number of people using that. So I would guess that will be available this year as well.

Unfortunately Android-based pads got the same feed as iPad last year, which did not work out. Hopefully that will work better this year.

Lets all ask for not to be the last!

we have to support EMC. its one of the best things to happen in the magic community
Message: Posted by: MickNZ (Jul 26, 2012 11:36PM)
Definately.
Message: Posted by: magicurt (Jul 27, 2012 12:46AM)
I'm in and can't wait. I wish I had been a part of it before.

First day ended more than an hour ago and it was sweet. Some minor technical difficulties but 2 out of the 3 sessions from today are already posted as on-demand. I'll have to review with pencil and notebook first thing in the morning but initially Eric Mead's opening was good, Denis Behr was strong and injected a breath of fresh air with his thinking and creative process. Bill Malone was hysterical and Marco Tempest is moving in directions most don't think about.

There's still time to sign up and even if you don't see all the sessions live, they'll be online shortly plus you'll get them as an 8-DVD set in the next month or two. Best bargin in magic in my opinion.

Wow, EMC was amazing!

EMC was great!
I sure hope it was not the last one.
For me the highlite of the three days was Tina Lenert.
Beautiful, graceful, and with amazing music she performed magic with silks and rings.
BRAVO TINA!

Yes, let's hope this wasn't the last.

This was really fun, I especially liked Yann and Dani.

I hope it wasnt the last aswell.
Really enjoyed it all!

This was my second EMC and I loved it just as much as last year (and I'm working my way through the dvd's of the first year). It was a shame the live feed for Derren and Teller didn't work out, but they were just bonuss anyway. As with last year I felt the first session justified the cost by itself. Eagily awaiting my Al Koran book now :)

The EMC was amazing this year. Looks like they are planning Phase 2, so I assume it's on next year! I hope...
Message: Posted by: bugjack (Jul 30, 2012 11:30AM)
I strongly doubt phase two will be the same thing. I'd guess it'd be a new version of the conference of perhaps some other endeavor leveraging the existing community of speakers and attendees.

In past years, how much time passed for the production (and sending) of the DVD? I can't wait for the special content...(Teller and Derren brown special complete interview, and Maven effect explanation) :D
Message: Posted by: bugjack (Jul 30, 2012 01:27PM)
The first year the DVD mailing was a train wreck. People didn't get it until the following Spring. Last year was a lot quicker. I can't remember the exact date, but I think it was in October or November at the latest.
Message: Posted by: Roslyn (Jul 30, 2012 03:43PM)
For me the highlight of this year, as last year, was Gaetan Bloom. Hilarious routining and extremely strong magic. Tina was great and I thought David Williamson's talk was very moving. But these are just the tip of another "epic" year with any one of the speakers making the cost of fee worthwhile.

I missed some of the sessions due to my own gigs, and some of the videos don't want to play yet. But with 2000+ people all wanting to watch and rewatch them I'm really not that surprised the EMC servers are feeling tired.

For me this was my 3rd EMC and the whole has just gone from strength to strength.

I'm hoping that EMC Phase 2 won't take too long to come to fruition. And if they're looking for volunteers to help behind the scenes in any way I'd be more than happy to volunteer my services.

Last year I think the DVDs may have been 2-3 months later, do not recall exactly. The additional download material was available sooner than that though, perhaps a couple of days after the conference.

Message: Posted by: Dean Jones (Sep 3, 2012 06:39AM)
It was aprently always going to be a 3 year thing. However they are now moving into phase two (what ever that is). I think Paul Daniels is right in that we have to get 'the kids' off the rubish free content on youtube and ileagle downloads and get them suporting events like the EMC and relaising that paying for magic makes you stick at it and get more from it
Message: Posted by: Kjellstrom (Sep 4, 2012 09:29AM)
Amazing magic and great talks. I look forward to next session next year.
So much talent out there.
