The auction allowed people at the venue and anyone online to bid real time while also providing high quality and stable video and sound feeds of the auction room.  The staff did an excellent job of keeping up with the auctioneer and the bids from bidders both online and in the room.

This meant all the information needed to bid was displayed on a single web page anywhere in the world making it almost as good as being in the auction room and without the cost of getting there.

Other improvements on other auctions included no fee for absentee bidding and the first bid met the reserve, which moved the auction along much quicker and removed the worries of people bidding to just below the reserve to promote their names.
