Government transparency is great for communities to understand issues and initiatives that could make an impact on individuals and businesses. However, accomplishing this through livestreaming has been complicated, expensive and labor intensive.
When it came time for the Port of Tacoma to update and upgrade their livestreaming setup, they chose the Paladin because of its versatility, affordability and ease of use, and integrated it seamlessly into their existing system, enabling them to stream their video production of commission meetings.
In the meetings, an executive panel communicates key initiatives to the public. Since there are several panel members, an audience and a spot for a public commentary in the venue, multiple camera angles are needed.
Five cameras controlled by an Eagle PTZ system were wired into a production room where Fife-based ACT Video Productions manages the cameras. The Paladin is used as a switcher and live production system.
"The Port of Tacoma, Washington, live-streams its biweekly commission meetings in the interest of transparency and public accountability. Recently, it selected the Paladin system to replace the outdated broadcasting equipment in its control room. Not only is the Paladin more powerful and versatile than the Port’s previous switcher, but it was less expensive as well.
It occupies minimal space, accepts all our audio, video, and monitor-display feeds, and outputs a clean signal at any resolution for live-streaming and disc archiving.
During the live broadcast, I’ve found that the user interface has enabled me to switch more deftly and incorporate more graphic overlays than before.
The Paladin is an obvious choice for any video production professional looking for an inexpensive switcher with power, versatility, and mobility." - Austin Gunderson, Production Manager, A.C.T. Video Productions.
