I was a little disappointed by the technical malfunctions this morning in Session 7.

Because of technical issues, I cannot participate all sessions except session 1.
Most memorable moment - with Maestro Juan Tamariz & Consuelo Lorgia in FISM Busan 2018.

...all of the sessions are up on their page to watch in your own time now. Well, almost all of them are up.

Great Conference, pitty about the technical issues. Nonetheless, some real gems were revealed!

Technical glitches aside, I found it incredibly enjoyable and think that the conference is very underpriced. With little exception, all the presentations were solid. The only thing that I would like to see next year is the ability to open the chat in a separate window. I use dual displays and it would be nice to have video fullscreen and still be able to participate in the chat sessions.

Luis' explanation of vanishing an audience member's car was a wonderful lession in how much work and thinking goes behind such an effect and how simply, relatively speaking, it can be accomplished. However, I am a little disappointed that he explained it because I fear some people will take the wrong lession from it...but that's their problem, not mine.

I missed the first EMC but, after the first day, I upgraded my membership to be able to see the 2010 videos. I was not disappointed. At first, I was a little apprehensive about the Conference, not knowing really what to expect. For me, a lot of the fun from the conventions comes from the late night sessions and camaraderie formed during the events; by the same token, you generally don't see presntations like Mike Caveney's, unless you're the lucky recipient of an invitation to the Conference on Magic History. Sign me up for 2012 (and 2013, 2014...)

As a result of work commitments I have only just begun to start watching this but after watching session 1 and 2, am very pleased I decided to order this. There have been some exceptional pieces so far and I can't wait for the chance to watch some more.

Based on what little I have viewed, I am already planning some annual leave for next year so that I can be available to participate (view) live!

I certainly hope that the number of subscribers was sufficient to allow the producers of this event to put it on again next year- and for many more to come.

I paid for the ECM conference, they took my money, but I have yet to receive any access to the videos on the website. I have tried the website, and Luis's website e-mail and received no reply for any of them. It has been a week now. I was wondering if anyone could put me in touch with any of the team to get this resolved?

Celloboy, when you register you register with a name and password before you are taken to the payment page. Those are the things you use to login and see the videos.

Hey Bugjack,
Yeah, I was a member from last year at ECM, and I used those login details to register. So I am logged in, reregistered, and still no videos.

Just to try to help: after I've logged in, I see a page with

"Home Conference News Schedule Speakers Videos Q&A Partners Members"

at the top. If I click on "Videos", I see :

Essential Magic Conference Videos
View as: Grid List Show: All videos Members only Liked Favorite Live Conference

and if I click on "Members Only" link, it takes me to the videos for the 2011 conference.

Does that help?

HI Larry
Yeah, I tried that, but when I click on the link it tells me I need to re-register. I've got in contact with the lovely David Britland, and there just seems to be a technical hiccup. He said it should be sorted very soon. Thanks for all those who helped.

On another note, does anyone know what happened to the PDF of the first volume of "Opus" that was supposed to go out to members after Chris and JJ's talk? Did I miss any mention of this during the conference?

And.. lets give them credit! These vids have appeared almost as quickly as they were promised last year, something that so many were grumbling about during the last EMC! I know how long it takes me to post just on episode of the podcast that I do and I commend them for their heroic efforts this year.

At the moment I was not disappointed at all, because I thought I would be able to watch the entire session on video. Unfortunately that is not true.
In the video posted as "Session 7 - Part 1" the David Berglas performance that was originally broadcasted was replaced by an extra impromptu session he did in order to not disappoint people who logged to see him.
I mailed the EMC Team a question about this matter and the answer I got was A JOKE.
In my opinion the right thing to do was to post both performances of David Berglas.

I'm going to answer my own question as the Opus material is now on the website available for members to download.

The answer I got was "As you rightly point out there were technical problems with Session 7. These are still under investigation by Sapo."
Although the EMC TEAM didn't stated it clearly, that answer implies that those technical problems of Sapo were the reason why we can't have the David Berglas original performance available in the video posted as "Session 7 - Part 1". To me, this idea is a joke and I already told the EMC TEAM.
Sapo is the Internet partner that provides the broadcast of the video stream.
If the session was not taped correctly on studio, Sapo shouldn't be blaimed.
Almost the entire Session 7 had video stream broadcasting problems and only the David Berglas participation was replaced by an extra performance.

I'd like to say my problem was resolved very quickly with the help of David Britland. It was done courteously and efficiently and they were a joy to talk to. I am now enjoying the talks and a massive congratulations to the whole ECM team. Thank you
