Webstreaming of Parksville council meetings to be compatable with tablets, MAC

Current system doesn’t work with all web browsers

Live and archived webstreaming of Parksville city council meetings will soon be compatible on mobile devices, tablets and MAC computers.

The city was informed that their current streaming supplier NeuLion/Endeavor will no longer provide the service and so they will switch to iCompass, which they currently use for agenda management.

iCompass offers a video manager HD service with live and on-demand video playback on any device (smart phone, android, tablet, MAC operating system, etc) and as well, iCompass webstreaming is compatible with all web browsers.

“We’re not replacing the cameras, it is the same service just a different company,” said Deb Tardiff, manager of communications with the City of Parksville, at an April 1 regular meeting. “[Webstreaming] will be now compatible with our web browser which the existing service isn’t.”

According to a report from Tardiff, in 2018, there were 2,805 views to the city’s website page where the live and archived video is accessed. A total of 4,833 hours of video were played back with total clients of 429. There is no distinction in the analytics between live and archived viewership. With updated technology and the ability to view through all web browsers, operating systems and on mobile devices rather than desktop only, viewership may increase. The April 15 council meeting will be the last with the NeuLion/Endeavor service.
