In collaboration with the Municipality of Eindhoven and Omroep Eindhoven, Noterik developed the Municipality Meeting Online application. Council meetings are transmitted live over the Internet, with unique rich media features, providing citizens and journalists with new ways to interact with local politicians. Additionally, webcasts are enriched with meta-data which enables the advanced retrieval of recorded council videos by using the system’s search engine. The project is presently the most advanced online video application for council meetings in the Netherlands. It demonstrates the potential of new technology to help to provide transparency of governance.
