Below is from their website:

Join CAE Healthcare and audiovisual solutions guru, Michelle Castleberry, in a free webinar event focused on exploring the many benefits and uses of the CAE Replay AV recording and playback system for getting the most out of medical simulation debriefing sessions.
Replay's always-on option ensures every action gets recorded and structures all visual and audio content into easily accessible "chapters" for simple replay and review. Replay stores audio, video, patient data and real-time annotations, allowing users to return to any part of a past session or simulation event to review it in part or in its entirety, however many times they wish.
You’ll learn about:
 How to implement Replay
 Replay’s stunning HD audiovisual and back-end hardware
 Advanced Google search features & cloud-based backups
 Scalability (from 2 up to 200 cameras)
 Simple installation and easy operation

Are you involved in Canadian Nursing? I just heard about this change from the Laerdal site...

"In January 2015 the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN®) replaces the CRNE as Canada's national examination for those applying to be a Registered Nurse. At Laerdal Medical Canada, we can help you and your students successfully prepare for and complete the NCLEX-RN® with innovative solutions developed in cooperation with our strategic partners."
