When considering the Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014, councils can keep content in context with Public-i.
Saving council time and resource is important. That’s why we developed our camera control software to automate with all up-to-date microphone systems.
Our “Just-in-Time” automated slides feature is widely used in planning meetings. It works automatically with your presentation so viewers can watch slides move alongside the video.
Dublin City Council
“Dublin City Council began live streaming in 2007 due to public demand for more openness and transparency. Connect allows us to keep a more accurate record of meetings as well as raising the profile of Councillors.
We can justify the cost because meetings have become more efficient. Decisions can now be easily tracked and recorded for follow up. There is also greater public awareness and engagement with decision making and a reduction in queries from press and the public. This has led to greater staff efficiencies
We could not consider stopping the service now as it is deeply embedded into our operations.”
