In order to support its members during the period of social isolation, adopted by most Brazilian states as one of the contingency measures of the pandemic of the COVID-19, SPR enabled a new program to support its active members in this very delicate period.
After studying various possibilities, and considering the current structure of the Digital Video Library, the Society decided to offer 40 classes to each of its approximately 8,000 members, at no additional cost. There are more than 3,000 classes recorded during the main events organized by SPR:
They will be available for free, to be chosen by the SPR member in the restricted website area, from March 26th to May 3rd – therefore, for 40 days.

The offer of this new benefit also aims to supply, immediately and practically, the need for the SPR member to update themselves scientifically with a high level content. Meeting this need became more urgent after SPR had to make the difficult decision to cancel the 50th São Paulo Radiological Meeting (JPR 2020), given the critical context of the COVID-19 pandemic.
While organizing to prepare a virtual version of its biggest event, SPR considered it essential to provide its active member with an extra educational benefit, in a volume similar to what they could potentially acquire by going to the face-to-face JPR. It was observed, for example, that if a participant attended all classes in one of JPR’s programs, from Thursday to Sunday, from early morning to late afternoon, this participant would have access to an average of 40 classes. Thus, the number of classes in the program was determined.
The 40-day period, stipulated for the SPR member to attend the 40 classes granted to them by SPR, was also defined in reference to JPR 2020 – the program started on March 26, and the end will coincide with the date in that JPR 2020 would take place.

It is a program under which SPR will offer each of its more than 8,000 members free of charge 40 classes from SPR’s Digital Video Library, which can be watched in up to 40 days.
Only active SPR members, that is, who are up to date with their annual membership, will be able to access the 40 classes granted free by SPR.
Classes will be available from March 26th to May 3rd – therefore, for 40 days.
The deadline for the SPR member to attend a class is three days, counting from its acquisition. In these three days, the user will be able to view and review the content, as many times as they want.
Not necessarily. The Digital Video Library system allows the user to purchase more than one class at the same time, if desired. For example, a user can click on a lesson title, pause or exit that content, and then choose another title to watch, leaving the previous one for later. But be careful: regardless of how many classes the user starts on a date, these classes should always be attended within three days.
Access to the Digital Video Library, restricted to the active member, can be done by entering the member’s restricted area, which in turn is linked to the SPR website. The recommended browsers for internet access are Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.
Classes are available for streaming, in high definition (720p). Therefore, a high-speed Internet plan is recommended to take full advantage of the Digital Video Library. The recommended minimum speed is 10 MB.
You can watch the videos on your computer, on Smart TVs, or through tablets and cell phones. In these last two cases, it is possible to attend classes on both Android and Apple devices.
