New system to recognize speakers at Annual Conference

5/30/2015

Roland Minshall, the Conference's Director of Information Technology, has developed a system that makes it possible to recognize speakers more quickly during the Annual Conference session.  Tiny radio transmitters will communicate with a video monitor on the platform letting the Bishop know the order that people come to a microphone and their intention - in favor, opposed, or choosing to ask a question.  Roland Minshall developed the system, on his own time, using low-cost, low-power computer technology to improve the plenary sessions of the Conference.
