Thank you for remember it.

I already sent copy of the mail from Theresa to Florencio Utreras
(futreras@reuna.cl). He is working in the local organization of the ICANN
meeting in Chile. May be he has a cheapper solution to webcasting. I know
he has been working in this topic.

As an advance, I can inform you that in Santiago there will be simultaneous
translation in three languages similar to Buenos Aires IFWP meeting.
