Welcome to the webcast pages for the LCA 2020 Conference, held at the Michael Fowler Centre, in Wellington, New Zealand. The Conference ran from Monday 18 January until Saturday 23 January

 The following links provide access to the various videos recorded during the conference. Not all rooms were handled the same way due to the logistics of cables and buildings.

Please note In some rooms there were significant issues with sound levels and quality (and use of microphones). In the edit process up to 45dB of gain has been added to recover audio. This also boosts the noise floor. If you find a recording with poor or bad audio, this is the best that can be achieved with what was available. One room has no audio. This is the downside of volunteer operated audio production. There was no full time technician controlling the audio feed from most rooms.  Civic1 is affected.
