Beginning with the May 6 Parksville council meeting, residents will be able to view council meetings through the city’s new online webstreaming service delivered by iCompass (Diligent Canada Inc).
The city currently uses iCompass for agenda management and the addition of webstreaming to the existing service offers an opportunity to upgrade the city’s webstreaming service. iCompass provides an HD video manager service with live and on-demand video playback on any device, including smartphones and tablets, and the webstreaming will now be compatible with all web browsers.
The archived video will be stored in Canada and will be available on-demand on the city’s website. City staff are currently in the process of uploading archived video from previous council meetings to the website; this content is expected be available shortly.
The city first introduced webstreaming in 2012, providing public access to both live and archived video of council meetings. Meetings may be viewed live online from the home page of the city’s website.
