Conferences by video

To allow speakers to make their contributions remotely or for conferences that take place on several different sites, Médiacap, Vannes council's multimedia centre is at your disposal.
Médiacap which opened in February 1999 in the Parc d'Innovation Bretagne Sud business park is one of the four branches of a network.
This facility is the result of the New Technologies programme implemented by the network of medium-sized towns in Brittany including Vannes, Quimper, Saint Brieuc and Saint Malo.
The purpose of Médiacap is to help the people of Vannes (individuals, businesses, associations, etc.) to appropriate the new technologies. Internet workshops, CD-Rom library, computer programme creations, distance learning, videoconferences, multimedia meetings, etc. are all part of the wide range of possibilities offered by Vannes Médiacap.
