COUNCIL MEETINGS NOW LIVE STREAMED
City of Midlothian, Texas: In order to increase access to our residents, the City of Midlothian has partnered with Swagit Productions, LLC to live stream indexed City Council meetings. With three cameras in the City Council Chambers, residents are provided with a high definition and dynamic viewing experience. The streaming video includes lower screen graphics, to help identify who is speaking and on camera, plus full screen graphics of digital presentations. The broadcast of the council meetings is hands-free, meaning it doesn’t require the City to staff a production team, with the help of Swagit Productions and their Avior hands-free broadcast solution.
City Council meetings are held the second and fourth Tuesday of every month at 6:00 p.m. and will be streamed live on our website beginning with the October 22, 2019 meeting. The meeting videos will be indexed with the agenda and archived for accessible on-demand viewing. Once a meeting is archived, the on-demand feature allows viewers to choose which meeting agenda items or conversations they wish to watch, and then jumps directly to that specific point within the video.
We hope that everyone will take advantage of this new technology to stay informed on Council actions. Of course, everyone is still invited to attend the meetings in person especially, if you wish to express your thoughts or opinions on a matter being discussed. This is a giant leap forward in increasing resident's access to their local government.
