Recent advances in digital recording technology have simplified the recording of audio, video, and image information from didactic radiology conferences. Recording lectures in a suitable digital format has several advantages, including the ability to edit lecture content, combine lectures conducted at different times and places, store media digitally, and broadcast conferences electronically over the Internet. An inexpensive, commercially available conversion device was developed that allows straightforward capture and compression of multimedia audiovisual information, thus facilitating the use of this information by the conference presenter as well as the end user. A converter is connected to a personal computer (PC) by means of standard connections, and editing and compression of digital media are performed on the PC prior to their distribution and archiving. The result is a high-quality, highly compressed file that can be played back from any PC and from many portable video devices. This approach represents a simple and cost-effective means of creating and maintaining a library of didactic lectures for students and trainees in radiology.
