Elmsform, NY (PRWEB) April 13, 2005
InfoValue Computing, Inc. (ÂInfoValueÂ), experts in providing innovative, high-performance video streaming platforms and solutions, today announced that the Taiwanese National Parliament (Legislative Yuan) has deployed InfoValue QuickVideoÂ broadband video streaming as their platform for streaming high quality MPEG-4 video over their IP networks and the Internet. This deployment represents a major upgrade in the third phase of the Legislative YuanÂs roll out of a state-of-the-art digital congressional meeting system.
The Legislative Yuan is the highest legislative body in the Republic of China. There are currently 225 representatives and more than 3,000 staff members. They were seeking a more powerful information technology environment to foster communications in the legislative process by documenting proceedings occurring simultaneously in all meeting rooms and sharing the details with all members, their staffs, the media and their constituents in their home districts.
The tightly integrated InfoValue QuickVideoÂ streaming is a state-of-the-art digital video solution that broadcasts, records, and streams on-demand high quality video of all meetings. Now representatives and staff members can instantly access whatever they need using live or post-session playback, from more than 3000 PCs, TVs and kiosks located throughout the Parliament complex. The sessions are also streamed over the Internet to the representativesÂ home districts across Taiwan. All view, search and playback functions are simple to use and enhance automation of congressional procedures such as minute taking.
ÂWe are committed to using information technology and best of breed solutions to efficiently and effectively support the efforts of the Legislative Yuan. Since 2000, we have increasingly benefited from our implementations of InfoValue software.Â Dr. Shi-Yang Chen, Director of Information Division, Legislative Yuan.
ÂThis latest upgrade to the digital congressional system is a real breakthrough,Â said David Fan, President of EDIT, InfoValueÂs partner for this large-scale project. ÂThe use of MPEG-4 has made possible streaming high quality video of the sessions not only within the Parliament complex, but throughout Taiwan.Â
"We are proud that the Legislative Yuan is relying on the InfoValue QuickVideoÂ solution to record and disseminate their official proceedings in many interactive and on-demand manners to greatly improve the communications in the daily workings of the body" said Monsong Chen, President and CEO of InfoValue.
