    hi kati, i emailed Iime about this and got the following so you SHOULD be able to watch:
    One does not need a different disc format for US computers or modern flat screen TVs.

    Our DVD producer replied to a similar question as below:

    Regional coding can affect play playback on PC's but not the disc format PAL or NTSC.

    All your (IiME) DVD's are created region '0' which means no regional restrictions.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD_region_code#PAL.2FSECAM_vs._NTSC

    However the users DVD software may not be correctly configured.

    There is a very simple solution.

    I highly recommend installing and using a piece of software called 'VLC media player' it is 100% free and extremely reputable and regarded as one of the very best media players available not just for DVD but for almost every type of video format.

    http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

    It is available for MAC and PC free of charge.

    PC version:

    Are you absolutely sure about this, shadida? The only reason I ask is because I looked up this issue myself because I thought it might not be a problem for modern computers but I was surprised to find that it can be an issue. But perhaps the info I read was out of date.

    Edit: Actually, it looks like your info is spot-on (sorry for doubting you!) with regards to modern equipment. My info was out of date: http://www.theguardian.com/technology/askjack/2007/jul/05/watchinganntscdvdjustpres

    From watching the DVD I didn't get the same impression that you got, my impression was there is still a good bit of work to do ...

    Do you know if the DVD may have been edited to remove some details of Dr Cambridge speech ?

    As far as I know, none of that talk was embargoed, so what's on the DVD is probably all of it. Jonathan commented on my article draft that I was overstating things a bit on this subject, and suggested alternative wording which is sure to be a more accurate summary of the situation:
    "Dr Jo Cambridge reports distinctive differences in maturation markers of B-cell subsets, potentially of use for subgrouping patients in a rituximab trial."

    Thanks, that aligns with what i picked up from the DVD.
    Just wondering was Olav Mellas speech edited or does the DVD contain the full version ?

    There was nothing embargoed in that presentation, so I expect the DVD version is probably the full version.
