 Webinar Summary: 

 Many testing applications across a variety of industries nowadays need constant monitoring. However, bringing samples back to the lab for analysis can be time-consuming and inefficient. At-line, online or inline solutions for time-sensitive analyses prevent costly downtime and enable simultaneous monitoring of several process parameters in real time. A wide range of techniques from wet chemistry to near-infrared spectroscopy are suitable for your process environment! 

 
 

Viewers Will Learn:

  • Precise, real-time reaction monitoring & achieving consistent product quality
  • Automated & customized at-line, online or inline process analysis for specific testing requirements
  • Non-destructive and fast measurement with NIR technology - low maintenance & low cost-of-ownership
  • Online applications using NIR in the polymer industry
  • Marathon Petroleum Company's experience with online NIR analysis for blend optimization
 

Who Should Attend:

  • Anyone interested in online, at-line and inline process analysis

Support & Troubleshooting


What support is available for users on Macintosh and Unix/Linux-Based operating systems?
This presentation incorporates advanced multimedia features that allow elements such as slides, polling questions, surveys, and application demonstrations to be dynamically sent to the audience synchronized with the presentation. Mac and Linux audiences may view the presentation using a supported Firefox Web browser and Adobe Flash playerPlease note that some presentations may not feature a Flash option. 

Why can't I hear audio?

  • If you have internal speakers, make sure they aren't muted.
  • If you have external speakers, make sure they are powered on and aren't muted.
  • Make sure you did not lose Internet connectivity.
  • Make sure you have the media player installed that you are attempting to use and the plugin is correctly installed within the browser.
  • If you are using Windows Media Player and the player simply stops and/or gives you a generic "error" message, you may be missing an audio codec required to decode the presentation audio. Click here for the Microsoft Codec Installation Package. 
    Alternatively, you can download the latest player here: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/download/
  • If you are using Adobe Flash Player and are having connection issues please refer to the section labeled "Why do I get a "connection failed" or "connection blocked" message when I try to view Adobe Flash streams?"
What is a pop-up blocker and how do I disable it?

Pop-up blockers are software programs that stop unsolicited "pop-up" browser windows from launching automatically. These windows often feature advertisements that can be an annoyance to users trying to browse the Internet, however some features of the Webcast may make use of pop-up windows to deliver key functionality. Depending on the software progam you have installed you may be able to add the Web site URL to a list of permissible Web sites where pop-up windows are allowed. 

It is common to have one or more pop-up blockers that you may be unaware of. Most pop-up blockers reside either in the system tray (lower right hand corner of your screen by the clock) or as a toolbar in Internet Explorer (at the top of your browser, go to "View" and then "Toolbars"). These can be disabled in their options or preferences menus. (Common toolbars such as Google and Yahoo Companion have built in pop up blockers). 

Also, if you are unaware of any other pop-up blockers that are running on your computer, you may want to see if you have personal firewall software running, such as Norton's Internet Security or ZoneAlarm. If you have either of these, they will also block pop-up windows.
