Following last month’s attempt to livestream a Birmingham City Council full council meeting, BCC will again attempt a full video and audio stream from today’s meeting.
Last month’s pioneering attempt hit problems on the day, as technicians found video equipment to be inadequate for the task. The meeting, including the swearing in of the new Lord Mayor Anita Ward, was streamed live with audio only.
Since then, systems have been upgraded and cameras will follow the meeting in the council house, with images being streamed directly to the internet using the Ustream service.
The stream will be available below once it goes live at around 1.45pm, Tuesday 14th June – the meeting starts at 2pm.
Those wishing to follow and discuss the events whilst watching the live stream, can do so on twitter using the hashtag #bccmeetings or follow and join in the discussion on the Cover It Live event page (we’ll add the link later or you can find the link here once it goes live) (NB: tweets with the #bccmeetings hashtag will automatically appear on the CoverItLive page)
