Short of time or travel funds to get out to a conference or trade show? "Learn in" with Control Engineering .

Via streaming video, we're offering two new opportunities to prepare for the challenges ahead.

  1. Click into Control Engineering Online —our upgraded NMW 2001 section adds dozens of short video interviews to editors' highlights of technology introductions, digital images, and on-screen write-ups and summaries. The online section at www.controleng.com samples the thousands of products displayed and trends revealed at National Manufacturing Week in Chicago, March 5-8—just in case you didn't get there in person. See more coverage in this April issue.

  2. Join us for the debut of Control Engineering Technology Webcast on May 1.

Required equipment

Control Engineering readers, highly Internet literate, may have already participated in a streaming video webcast. Here's what's required. Get on a computer where you'll be able to access the streaming video clip or webcast on your own or with others.

  • To verify you have the needed hardware and software, please register as soon as practical at www.controleng.com/webcast. Provide name, company, e-mail and phone number. We'll send an e-mail reminder 24-hours before the event.

  • Also, before the event, download RealPlayer and do the setup, if you don't have that software on your computer. That's basically a three-part process.

First, on our registration page, click on download and find the free version on the site (center left, small print, as of March 20, 2001) and download the software.

Then, follow the prompts to install the software on your computer. Finally, reset your monitor and reboot, if recommended.

System requirements are listed along the way; an earlier version is available, if you have less than the minimum. If you're hung up, RealNetworks Inc. (Seattle, Wa.) offers advice at service.real.com/index.html

'Next Generation'

First Control Engineering Technology Webcast topic is "Next Generation I/O." Three presenters will examine the topic for 35-40 minutes via streaming video and meaty PowerPoint slides. Participants then will be able to interact with the presenters in a 20-minute Q&A session, via toll-free telephone number or online.

Moderator and webcast host is Jane Gerold, industry consultant for Control Engineering. She's former director of Control Engineering Online and former editorial director of Control Engineering .

Gary Mintchell, Control Engineering senior editor and specialist in machine control, will present an overview of the industry with a focus on needs assessment.

Benson Hougland, director of technical marketing for Opto 22 (Temecula, Calif.), this webcast's sponsor, will discuss how next-generation I/O technologies address emerging industry needs.

John Irwin, manufacturing manager, Callaway Golf Co., will cover how new Opto 22 I/O technologies and products meet critical manufacturing needs.

The webcast will be available on-demand after May 1. Read this preview online for more about the presenters and topics.

Will you please join your peers in participating in this next innovative way to educate the Control Engineering audience?
