Cloud Driven Solutions introduces seamless meeting broadcasts into their adaptable off-the-shelf age
by A.J. Thompson, Founder and CEO of Cloud Driven Solutions
It's undeniable that local governments need to make their meetings accessible to the public through live streams and recordings. However, they soon realize the difficulties that arise from this endeavor. Historically, this has necessitated expensive hardware, trained staff, and/or contracted labor for production and distribution. Thankfully, hardware advancements and modern software capabilities have begun to change this.
CDS sought out to revolutionize the field of video production by providing a range of tools and technologies that make it easier to control broadcasting equipment and create high-quality video productions. Through their new “OnAir” add-on, it is possible to record/stream, control cameras, microphones, switchers, and other equipment without extra interactions, enabling entities to deliver what their citizens are asking for easily and affordably.
One of the key advantages of software-based video production is the ability to automate repetitive tasks. For instance, it is possible to set up a script that automatically switches between camera angles and apply layout changes, reducing the need for manual intervention. This is essential for live events, where the ability to switch between different camera angles and shots quickly and smoothly is critical.
In addition to automation, OnAir comes with custom graphics, overlays, topic info, voting results, and more making it to where even novice users can produce transparent professional-quality meetings that rivals that of experienced videographers. Overall, the ability to control broadcasting equipment through their software has transformed the world of video production, making it easier and more accessible than ever before. With the right tools and technologies at their disposal, local governments can affordably deliver videos of their meetings so even entities with the smallest of budgets can provide what their citizens are asking for.
When you combine these capabilities with AgendaLInk’s interactive HTML agendas, citizens are provided with a best-in-class experience making it easier than ever to access the information and content provided by local governments.
