Local Government Live Streaming
ENSURE TRANSPARENCY AND ENGAGEMENT WITH OUR RELIABLE AND SECURE LIVE STREAMING SERVICES
Takirua Tandem Media is the main service provider for local government live streaming. We currently work with Christchurch City Council, Auckland Council and Timaru District Council to livestream their Council and committee meetings and have worked with many other Council's in the past to establish systems, including Wellington, Napier, Taupo and Nelson.
Why should Council’s livestream?
Local government live streaming solutions provide several benefits to both Council’s and the public, including:
Increased Transparency: Livestreaming council meetings increases transparency by allowing the public to see and hear the discussions and decisions being made by their elected officials in real-time.
Improved Accessibility: Livestreaming makes council meetings more accessible to a wider audience, including those who are unable to attend in person due to distance, mobility, or other constraints.
Increased Engagement: Livestreaming council meetings can increase public engagement and participation by providing an easy and convenient way for citizens to stay informed about the decisions being made on their behalf.
Better Record Keeping: Livestreaming provides a permanent record of council meetings, which can be helpful for historical purposes and for resolving disputes or clarifying past decisions.
Cost-Effective: Livestreaming can be a cost-effective solution compared to traditional methods of recording and distributing council meetings, as it eliminates the need for expensive equipment, staff, and distribution channels.
What we do
- System design and installation: We work with you to understand your requirements, then find a solution that fits your needs and budget. We’ll work with your exisiting IT/AV equipment and suppliers where possible to keep things smooth and cost-effective.
- Operation and management: Our highly skilled crew are on-site each meeting to manage and operate the livestream so staff don’t have to worry about anything or learn new systems. Or we can offer remote operation options if you’d like to keep costs down.
- Live editing: We can edit individual videos agenda items for easy on-demand viewing live during the meeting. Each video is uploaded to the livestreaming channel within minutes.
- Archiving: Once the videos are uploaded to your chosen channels, we can archive them onto a custom built website for historic record keeping.
