The Town of Jackson will begin making its Town Council meetings available to the public on a new website that will stream those meetings live. According Mayor Mark Barron, the new service will also provide indexed video archiving after the meetings have concluded, allowing for easy retrieval and review. Barron says the new service is intended to be responsive to requests for information and services and by providing instant information from their mobile devices, the town believes is one way to provide better service. Barron says the town worked with a company called Swagit Productions for video streaming, which offered a turnkey, cost-effective solution. The system consists of cameras and production and encoding equipment, with content distributed and archived by means of a hosted “cloud” environment. The Town Council meetings scheduled for 3:00 P.M. and 6:00 P.M. on November 18, 2013 will be the first meetings video streamed to the public.
