Board meeting location to temporarily change

Post Date:11/09/2015 10:15 AM

Most City of San Angelo board and commission meetings will move to the east mezzanine of City Hall from Nov. 12-30 as audio/visual equipment is upgraded in the City Council chambers at the McNease Convention Center.

The City Council’s Nov. 12 meeting will not be impacted; it will occur in the chambers at the convention center, 501 Rio Concho Drive.

Much of the audio/visual equipment used to film City meetings is 10-plus years old. It will be replaced with modern equipment whose benefits include:

  • High-definition cameras that will yield a more watchable product. SATV, the City’s government access channel, is expected to transition to a high-definition format in early 2016.
  • Council meetings will air live on SATV, Suddenlink cable channel 17. They will continue to air live at cosatx.us/watch. Other meetings and forums of high public interest will also be broadcast live.
  • The first rebroadcast of Council meetings will occur on the same evening as the meeting.
  • Screens in the Council chambers will be replaced with 80-inch panels on articulating mounts that swing out, allowing audiences to more easily view presentations.
  • A new touchscreen at the lectern will allow for easy annotation with presenters drawing on the screen. The annotations will be visible on all screens in the chambers.
  • New production equipment will yield a more seamless and higher-quality broadcast.
  • A portable system that includes four cameras, switching equipment and a wireless audio system will allow the recording of meetings in other locales, such as last year’s strategic planning session at Fort Concho. The system will be used to record November meetings in the east mezzanine of City Hall, 72 W. College Ave.

The work, approved by the City Council on May 5, will be performed by Media Rushworks. The Flower Mound company has performed similar projects for municipalities across the state.
