Two new Videotel on Demand (VOD) on board training units presented to the IMO on behalf of Videotel Marine International by Stephen Bond, Deputy Chairman and Nigel Cleave, Chief Executive Officer. 

Visitors to the IMO  on Tuesday were surprised to find an impromptu training session taking place in the Maritime Knowledge Centre when Mr Koji Sekimizu, Secretary General of the organization, was given a demonstration of Videotel’s second generation on board training system, Videotel on Demand (VOD) G2.

As Mr Bond conducted the virtual tour around the system he said, “This is a very poignant moment for Videotel. Our roots are firmly based at the IMO – we were founded as a direct result of the IMO’s call for better training materials, and now here I am, 40 years later, able to hand over the latest in cutting edge training technology, featuring not only videos but also fully interactive computer based training materials. We have come a very long way.”

The VOD G2 units handed over to the IMO are pre-loaded with the full portfolio of Videotel’s award winning training packages, and include top quality marine safety and operational training videos, animation, computer-based training materials (CBT) and instructional courses. Comprehensive and interactive, the training material will be used by visitors to the Maritime Knowledge Centre for a wide range of purposes from research through to education.
