GovWebcast Video Streaming

GovWebcast Solution empowers local governments to webcast public meetings and announcements on the Internet live or on-demand. The public webcast provides live streaming video with synchronized agenda items, meeting minutes, linked documents and reports, and optional closed caption text. Immediately after the live webcast, the synchronized webcast presentation is automatically archived in searchable format and can be accessed at anytime on-demand on the Internet. Citizens and internal government staff can search recorded webcasts based on simple keywords similar to popular Web search engines such as Google and Yahoo.
