Livestreaming for open democracy – Christchurch and Auckland City Councils

Tandem Studios has been working with local councils for many years to live stream their council meetings. We are experts in live streaming Council meetings and we are the preferred supplier to all major New Zealand Councils. We proudly stream regular weekly and monthly meetings for Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington City Councils as well as many District Councils in recent years including Taupo District Council. Council meetings are streamed and presented without bias and are able to be viewed online in the same way as someone would be able to receive information if they had actually attended the meetings. When a part of the meeting has to be held in private it’s quite simple to turn off the cameras and microphones, in a similar way that the council chamber is emptied of the public when it goes into ‘committee’.

Our skilled teams show up each meeting day to run the live streams and edit the full meeting live into individual agenda item videos for easy on-demand viewing. This system is not only used by the public, but also a valuable tool for staff looking to keep up to date with what’s happening in the meeting as it happens.

Our council live streaming solutions also offer a specially designed archiving website for all meeting videos so they can be easily archived and found at a later date. Below you can see images of all major council’s we work with, click each image to be taken to the live streaming website to view the work we do.

If you’re a council and would like to start live streaming, get in touch with us today.
