Frequently asked questions and answers (relevant to the webcast library)

Have another question? Email us


Q. What is a webcast?

A webcast shows you a video of the speaker and the presentation slides simultaneously, so you can see and hear what the conference audience does. It is easily viewable on your computer, tablet or smartphone.


You can use the webcast library search engine to find relevant topics without having to watch an entire session. When you click on the search result, you’ll be taken directly to the point in the presentation where the keyword was shown.


Q. Will it work on my device/computer?

Probably. It works fine on most phones and computers. But you can check the specific system requirements on this page


Q. I want to view the webcast library but the link has taken me to a username page. How do I get access?

Only HiNZ Conference delegates and HiNZ members are allowed to access the webcast library. Or join HiNZ today to get access.


Q. How do I login to the webcast library?

Q. I have entered my HiNZ member username/password but I keep being redirected to the FAQ page. What am I doing wrong?

If you are being redirected to the login page it means that your username/password are incorrect and are being rejected by the webcast library. To reset your HiNZ member password, login to the HiNZ website, and ask to reset it. Then try again with the webcast library login. 


If the HiNZ website is rejecting your username, try a different email address or email us to request your HiNZ member username/password.

Q. When are the conference sessions available?

The sessions taking place in the plenary room are live-streamed during 20-22 November. All other sessions are available on-demand within 24 hours (except for private meetings/workshops and any presentation where a speaker has denied consent to be filmed).



Q. I am a HiNZ member. Do I get access to the webcast library?

Yes. All HiNZ members automatically get full access to all sessions in the conference webcast library for the term of their membership. PLUS you also get other member benefits. If you aren't a HiNZ member - join HiNZ now.


Q. Can I download a copy of a speaker's slides?

No, the webcast does not allow this. The only way you can access a speaker's slides is if you ask a speaker to give you written permission to have access to their slides. You then need to forward the speaker's email to as proof you have this permission, before we could email you a download file of the slides. (Or you can ask the speaker to send you the slides directly). To email the speaker, if you don't know their email address, use the conference app message function.
