Hastings-on-Hudson, NY (PRWEB) May 30, 2014
The Village of Hastings-on-Hudson recently partnered with Swagit Productions to provide online webcasts of government meetings and information. Swagit's EASE encoder is on site allowing for automatic transfer of media content to Swagit's Distribution Network where it is time stamped and cross-linked to an online formatted agenda.
With the use of Swagit's unique Extensible Automated Streaming Engine (EASE) software, recording public videos are fully automated and uniquely 'hands free', requiring no additional time or labor from Village employees.
“Our goal is to not only offer the best video streaming solution possible, but to simplify the process of webcasting for both our clients and the end user, resulting in a streaming experience that is timely, efficient and satisfying for all involved,” said Daniel Kerr, Chief Technology Officer at Swagit.
Hastings-on-Hudson meetings are published on the Village website for on-demand viewing and indexed with an integrated agenda allowing viewers to jump to specific sections of each webcast. Currently the most recent meetings for the Board of Trustees, Planning Committee, and Zoning Committee are available for viewing. Future webcasts will also include local events and information. In addition, coverage on local specialty programs such as, the Hastings/Dobbs Ferry Shared Services Feasible Study and the Hastings Waterfront Cleanup will be available to Village residents.
Hastings-on-Hudson is now webcasting recorded government videos online here. Viewers can access these meeting from any media device including tablets and phones.
Please Note: Webcast videos include index points allowing users to jump to specific points of the meeting. These breaks are outlined in the 'Meeting Index' tab of the video interface, and the full writing agenda is available to view - as well as save and print. On the 'Share' tab, videos can also be embedded on an external website using a code.
