ACT provides two versions of our online videos: high resolution and low resolution to ensure that the videos can be accessed and enjoyed by people with various internet connection speeds. If you have a slower connection, please view the low resolution video and allow time for the video to load before viewing to ensure a smooth viewing experience.
