Since we were not able to have the planned annual award dinner (a.k.a. IEEE Malaysia Inspiration Night 2020), which was originally planned on 04.04.2020 due to Covid-19, section excom decided to have a small scale event to recognize our volunteers and award winners in the form of a hybrid physical/virtual appreciation lunch and award ceremony in conjunction with the IEEE Day 2020 yesterday, 10.10.2020, at Marriott Putrajaya. The event was planned by the organizing committee chair, Prof Zuhaina Zakaria and (the IEEE Day portion was led by Dr Mohd Hafiz Ismail & Mohammed Hussein) supported by Dr Ashida, Dr Idora, Dr Rozita, Dr Suhaila, Dr Haida, Dr Faizal, Chong, Dr Fakhrul and Dr Pauzi. I would like to convey my utmost appreciation to this team of volunteers for making this happen.

The live broadcast of this IEEE Day 2020 Celebration and 2019 Award Ceremony was coordinated and produced 100% by our student volunteers from IEEE Student Branch at Multimedia University. The broadcast was directed by our SSR, Mohammed Hussein and produced by volunteers from MMU Student Branch–led by Hisham, assisted on-site by Amar, Wassem and Obada. I’m proud to highlight that the production was done using free and open source software–OBS Studio (Open Broadcaster Software), and with the personal video cameras and laptops belonging to the volunteers at MMU SB. I would like to personally thank these student volunteers for their support and 100% commitment during the two webex sessions days ahead of the event to plan the broadcast, 5 hrs of preparation and dry run the day before the event and the 6 hours during the live broadcast of the D-day yesterday. Other than the brief audio hiccup during the first few minutes, the live broadcast was almost of professional quality rivaling TV1 live broadcast. 🙂 Well done to the MMU SB team.

We did not invite IEEE members and chapter volunteers to join us physically at this celebration this time because of the RMCO restrictions, but only the award winners. Members were invited to join live on FB page or YouTube channel. You can watch the event on-demand at the link below, in case you missed the live broadcast yesterday.
