PMG Captures Monthly Schuylkill Township Board Meetings
In March, the board of supervisors in Schuylkill Township unanimously approved a contract with Phoenix Media Group to have their monthly meetings videotaped. Beginning in April, PMG has captured each monthly board of supervisors meeting with the Sony NX5 and delivered a DVD as well as uploaded the meeting for web distribution and online viewing.
This past May, Applied Video Technology, affiliate of PMG, installed 10 Sennheiser wireless microphones, JBL ceiling hung speakers in addition to an amplifier and echo cancelling mixer. This new system vastly improves the acoustics of the room and allows for much better communication between board members and community participants.
Township supervisor Mary Bird has said, “Working with the PMG this year has been a great experience. The staff, from the office personnel, to the videographer to the field technicians, has been professional, knowledgeable and easy to work with. Through PMG, we now videotape the Township Board of Supervisors meetings once a month and then webcast those videos. Also this year, Phoenix Media Group installed a microphone system in our meeting room. PMG worked with us, understood our budgetary constraints and developed a plan of action for both projects that the Township could afford and the residents were happy that we accomplished.”
