Region 9 Board of Education to start livestreaming meetings
The Region 9 Board of Education will soon livestream its meetings.
The board received a grant from Cablevision to purchase the video equipment needed to make the switch.
Meetings will most likely be broadcast on live Channel 78, the local education channel, and on YouTube.
Board members also considered using Facebook to livestream the videos but said that was more complicated because a Facebook account is needed to broadcast and view the videos.
New microphones and cameras are expected at the January meeting when the live broadcast will most likely start. A third camera will be added in March to cover all angles of the board table.
The meeting videos will still be archived on vimeo, the current video site used.
