Tuesday, April 28, 2009
Burnaby, BC – INSINC (Interactive Netcasting Systems Inc.) today announced that the Company will be extending its webcasting services agreement supplying innovative streaming media services to the City of Burnaby for another three (3) years.
The company, founded in 1997 by Hugh Dobbie (Jr), has developed a system called MediaDex, which allows organizations to organize and index their streaming content, in real-time or to archives, through a simple-to-use web interface.
The program is currently in use by the Government of British Columbia Legislative Assembly (Hansard), the City of Vancouver and the Supreme Court of Canada.
“This product allows the person who is responsible for doing meeting minutes to easily index video clips from civic proceedings 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.”
