Wounds International is a London-based healthcare communications business with a mission of advancing medical education in wound management among a vast network of clinicians and medical leaders globally.
With a combined social following of well over 10,000, Wounds International embraces digitalization as a means to effectively reach medical professionals worldwide.
This is evidenced in the Wounds International team’s efforts to leverage online publications, localized e-learning portals, and webinars to deliver its high-quality, practice-based education across geographies.
Needless to say, when its annual medical conference for professionals turned virtual due to the pandemic, the team went to great lengths to ensure a smooth experience wherever their end viewers are, including China.
Location: the United Kingdom
With a product team in China, Zoom is understood by word of mouth as a China-friendly option for cross-border conferencing or live-streaming.
However, this isn’t quite the case.
Zoom is exclusive to verified Chinese participants and requires an enterprise subscription with a local partner to operate in China. The process can take up to weeks.

With over 200 registered participants in China, Wounds International was determined to overcome these technical challenges with Chinafy.
A user-intuitive site that enables China visitors to access its quality educational stream with reduced latency
A high-performance education portal for healthcare professionals to facilitate knowledge-sharing across borders
Considerations: Keep in mind that Chinafy does not proxy, or whitelist Zoom or Vimeo in China. Instead, we ask that you set up a separate RTMP feed, which is then processed and delivered via cloud providers hosted entirely offshore or outside of Mainland China. This enables you to deliver a non-branded stream via your own site accessible anywhere that your domain is accessible. More on Live-stream with Chinafy.
