Streaming Wizard has worked with various UK Councils to provide streaming services, such as those listed above.
Warrington Borough council undertook a project on behalf of the North West E-Government Group to study how council's could make use of streaming technology.
Streaming Wizard provided all of the necessary hardware and training to 12 delegates from Warrington, Blackpool, Oldam and Lancaster Councils as well as Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service. After three days training, the staff were competent in broadcasting live events, filming and editing short videos for on-demand playback as well as integrating and synchronizing PowerPoint presentations alongside their videos.
Streaming Wizard encodes and hosts various videos for Educational Services at Glasgow City Council.
'Education Services are "absolutely delighted" with the work. We are particularly impressed, and grateful, for the hassle free way in which this was carried out.'
