Enhanced options and administrator controls for a more user-friendly video experience

6 December 2017 – Markham, Ontario: eScribe, a leading provider of cloud-based meeting management solutions for public sector boards and councils, today announced that it has formally launched an enhanced video streaming platform.

“With this launch we are further challenging the common perception that video streaming meetings is cumbersome, and requires significant technical knowledge and IT support resources”, said Robert Treumann, President of eScribe. “And with the addition of our real-time automated close captioning service fully indexed with the meeting, public sector organizations can provide a digitally inclusive user experience for all constituents and stakeholders directly through their own website.”

Enhancements to video streaming related tasks range from ease of scheduling and setup, to additional administrator controls during the meeting, and to post-meeting video editing and publishing to the web. It is an advancement of the entire meeting lifecycle.

With one-click streaming and recording, meeting administrators can have full control of what is being streamed and recorded right from their seats. They can also monitor video encoder and microphone status directly on their screens. Bookmarks of video are automatically captured during the meeting according to the agenda. Timestamps can be adjusted as necessary post-meeting before publishing to the website. Freed from dealing with hardware equipment, administrators can focus on running the meeting.

The addition of Splash Screens allows for the smooth transition between sessions and breaks, whether scheduled or due to unexpected events. Multiple splash screens can be uploaded in advance, which can then be quickly and easily applied for different scenarios.

Viewers can access the videos directly through your existing corporate website with no programming required. They can watch the entire video linked to either the agenda or minutes, or select an individual agenda item and view that section only, significantly improving the viewer experience and satisfaction.

Furthermore, unlike other providers, eScribe’s automated closed captioning service provides real-time captioning of meetings for constituents and stakeholders with no additional hardware or software required. Accessibility mandates can be easily achieved, engaging all stakeholder groups for your meetings.

With these new enhancements and more, eScribe is once again raising the bar: Organizations don’t need complicated video switchers, or require onsite IT and audio visual specialists to video stream the meeting.
