Supervisors Meetings Now Viewable on Mobile Devices
(Santa Ana, CA) — Beginning Tuesday, live streaming and archived videos of Orange County Board of Supervisors meetings will be accessible on mobile devices, including phones and tablets, thanks to a series of webcasting upgrades provided through GovTV.
Viewers also will be able to watch Board meetings in higher resolution with improved image quality and a 16 x 9 wide-screen viewer experience.
“Streaming Board meetings on mobile devices is another great way to help people to view Board meetings so that they can be involved and informed about what is going on in Orange County,” said Board of Supervisors Chairman Todd Spitzer, Third District. “This also provides a greater level of transparency in our government decision-making process.”
The County has webcast Board meetings since 2007 and maintains an online video archive of past meetings. The meetings are closed-captioned, with each video searchable by agenda number or subject matter. Viewers need not watch an entire meeting but may select a specific portion for review.
The improvements available for Tuesday’s Board meeting should be seamless for those live streaming over the Internet via a PC, Mac or mobile device, or accessing archived meeting videos. For those using Internet Explorer browsers, a minimum of Version 8 is required. Some viewers may experience issues due to older browsers or security settings. If you have difficulty accessing the Board meeting video, please contact (855) 886-5400.
