Web design objective
The objective was to deliver reliable, rich content to a high-bandwidth audience for the duration of each hour long webchat.
This involved an entirely bespoke solution drawing together an office-based broadcast studio with administrative Q&A panel using Windows Server 2003 hosting environment serving ASP web pages driven by a MS SQL database.
