City of Vancouver Deploys INSINC’s Internet Broadcasting System
Tuesday, September 28, 2004
Burnaby, BC – INSINC (Interactive Netcasting Systems Inc.) of Burnaby BC, today announced that the Company will be supplying innovative streaming media services to the City of Vancouver.
The company, founded in 1997 by Hugh Dobbie (Jr), has developed a system called MediaDex, which allows organizations to edit their streaming content in real-time through a simple-to-use web interface.
The program is currently in use by the Government of British Columbia Legislative Assembly (Hansard) and has now been developed for municipal governments.
“This product allows the person who is responsible for doing meeting minutes to easily cut and paste files for later playback by interested persons,” says Dobbie. He added, “This ability cuts down on the amount of streaming time and ultimately the cost of communicating with constituents by giving viewers quicker access to information they require.”
Dobbie says that he expects this new product to set the standard for use by municipal governments in Canada. INSINC is poised to begin its marketing of MediaDex in the next few weeks. City of Vancouver Council Meetings can be access through the Internet at:
