Future staff efforts include continuing to test equipment capabilities and limitations to see if the feeds can be livestreamed during the meetings as opposed to having to edit and create a video file after meetings. Not only will this allow the public to watch meetings in real-time, but this should also simplify the video editing process for staff and make the process easier for current and future staff to maintain.
By leveraging existing equipment, the City was able to deliver video recordings of meetings at no added cost to the City or taxpayers while also delivering content with higher quality than would be expected through using other available means such as live-streaming from a cellphone. Long-term goals would be to acquire and install dedicated equipment for live-streaming purposes that are better tailored to the task and segregated from our building security systems.
