Total Design Build for City Council

Organizations all over the world have been forced to look at their video strategies, and those pressures and necessities are amplified in the public sector. City councils have been under significant strain to overcome associated technology challenges. That’s where Exertis Broadcast (JB&A) and our Reseller Partners can step in and help provide a fresh perspective.


Like many City Councils, the customer in this story had an existing chamber with in-room Audio Video technology, but without any true broadcast features. Once the city needed to start streaming, not only was it difficult, the output did not look good for remote viewers.


Our Broadcast first approach was completely in line with the city’s #1 objective for their video needs – provide high quality audio and video to their audience and participants. We supported that core solution from an IT centric, AV perspective. The team at the City loved the approach but they had one big caveat – the solution needed to be within their budget.


Our final design included a NewTek TriCaster switcher at the heart of the city council chamber, 4 NDI PTZ cameras to capture all of the room, 13 total microphones, sound reinforcement, wireless presentation capabilities, in-room signal distribution, 2 – 65” displays, and support for 10 desktop monitors for the board and clerks. We were able to provide not only the Bill of Materials, but also helped develop the Statement of Work to make sure the project went off without a hitch. Amazingly, we were able to come in just under the city’s budget for the project.
