Which devices can I access the platform with?

Though the virtual platform is accessible via computer, tablet and mobile phone, for the best experience it is recommended to use a computer to access the platform.

What virtual platform is the event using?

The IPTC Virtual Platform is hosted on a Secure Cloud Server via Amazon Web Services (AWS) and uses a content delivery network (CDN) to securely deliver data, videos and applications to users globally with low latency, high transfer speeds, all within a developer-friendly environment.

What are the recommended system requirements to access the platform?

- For bandwidth, we recommend 1Mbits download and 0.5 Mbits upload speed. 
- For hardware, we recommend a minimun dual-core CPU with at least 2G of memory, also recommended any operating system capable of running the latest versions of Google Chrome and Mozilla FireFox.
- For browser, we recommend running either FireFox, Chrome, or the latest Edge (which is based on Chromium). Why? These browsers provide excellent support for web real-time communications (WebRTC). On Mac OS X, the latest Safari will work as well, but FireFox and Chrome will deliver better audio in lower bandwidth conditions.

Do I need to download software to access the virtual event?

No, the virtual event platform is fully web-based and supported through browsers from various devices.
