Multimedia mode press conference
Especially for the player’s press conferences the organizers fixed the conference hall with special equipment – the big multimedia screens where you are able to see the games. It allows for the grandmasters with the help of the laser mouse and chess program, Chess Tiger 15.0, to comment the games for the journalists, analyze the mistakes and possible variants of the games. The CEO of Global Chess Geoffrey Borg said that this way of holding press conferences is used for the first time at tournaments of the FIDE Grand Prix series.
