OPEN AND ACCOUNTABLE local government is key and most elected representatives want their constituents to be engaged in local issues and hear all about their work and efforts on their behalf. Up until now, there's just hasn't been a simple, low cost way to achieve live coverage of local government meetings.
LimeStreamer offers just that. It's as simple as plugging in the little green box and connecting the audio from the conferencing or public speaking systems you already have installed for your meetings. There's no ongoing operational cost of subscriptions.
Technically truly simple to operate too. Switch on to start streaming live. Switch off to stop. You can even add a red light or warning sign to show when the system is switched on. A free app allows live listening using a smart-phone or tablet.
Live audio streaming is a much simpler and cheaper solution compared with video streams - and perhaps also less instrusive to the normal conduct of the meeting than cameras pointing everywhere.
