Web streaming debuts for Vail, Avon meetings

Daily staff report
Vail, CO Colorado

VAIL, Colorado – The towns of Vail and Avon, in partnership with Public Access TV 5, will begin live Web streaming of their respective council meetings this month. The new technology will debut today during the afternoon and evening sessions of the Vail Town Council and on Jan. 24, when the Avon Town Council convenes for its regular meetings.

The Web streaming initiative follows installation of a new, multi-camera system that provides improved production capabilities within the council chambers in both communities. In addition to four mounted overhead cameras in each facility, the system includes enhanced graphics and improved documentation of digital presentations making it easier for viewers to hear council discussion and see staff presentations. The system can also be used in the TV 5 studios or at a remote location to record special events.

The two municipalities entered into an intergovernmental agreement to purchase and share the multi-camera production system while the Vail Town Council agreed to purchase and share the equipment necessary to stream meetings live in both communities. Public Access TV 5 will manage both systems.
