Emma

EMMA has been re-named to be Event Central.

The Event Central application is an online collaboration tool that will enable Translation Services, Church Curriculum and Media Services to coordinate the production and publication of General Conference and other broadcast and interpretation events. Event Central will provide the functionality to consolidate event agendas, interpretation language assignments, official speaker lists, scheduling information and other shared event information.

By providing a consolidation tool that coordinates the collection and dissemination of critical event information (specifically agendas, language assignments and speaker lists), we can ensure that all the groups mentioned above have access to the most current versions of content. This includes last minute changes or revisions to the event by the Office of the First Presidency or other Presiding Authorities.

Key project information

Deliverables

The Event Central solution will provide teams from Translation, Media Services, Curriculum and other groups a central coordination and management tool for critical information concerning General Conference and other CHQ broadcast events. This includes but is not limited to, speaker lists, booth grids, talk titles, and music. Major key deliverables will be:

  1. Online Tool to centralize management of key broadcast event information
  2. Central management and distribution of the booth grid
  3. Online source for speaker lists, event agenda, timings, and languages
  4. Output of initial media xml files for LDS.org publishing.
