Avon council gets better TV coverage
Vail, CO Colorado
Board: Avon Town Council, Nov. 8 evening meeting.
Present: Reynolds, Evans, Carroll, Phillips, Dantas, Goulding.
Who they talked to: JK Perry, general manager of Channel 5, the community access TV channel.
What they talked about: Perry took council members through a new system of cameras the station is using in the council chambers. That new system includes four cameras and a system that will pipe PowerPoint presentations directly into the TV feed. The new system – as well as a similar system in Vail – can also use graphics to identify council and town staff members, as well as people who frequently speak at meetings.
The system has been paid for with a fee charged by local cable TV operator Comcast.
What’s next? Better-looking Town Council broadcasts, that eventually may be streamed live on the Internet.
