Government Access Programming, PEG and Social Media
As the news cycle becomes 24/7, and viewers expect to see news while it is happening, local government channels need to rethink their video operations and who they are serving. Should video resources be directed towards providing social media content and website content first? How are the formats and storytelling different? Hear from cities that are providing dedicated resources for video for social media and online purposes to learn what's working and what the payoff is.

After holding a Roundtable Discussion of Closed Captioning for Public Access and Governmental Programming last year, the FCC recently adopted changes to its rules for closed captioning. This SCAN program will discuss the new rules and how they apply to government access channels

In addition, changes in technology have created different ways that captioning can technically be created and distributed. An overview of the options, the equipment and staff required, along with the pros and cons of the different options will be presented.

As local governments work toward providing accessibility to all of the members of their communities, come learn what the options are for compliance with the new rules.  

This workshop will be moderated by Jack Chin, SFGovTV General Manager. Speakers are Thomas Loftus, Operations Supervisor & System Engineer, SFGovTV and Christopher Keveny, Real Time Captioning & Media Services Manager, Teleperformance RapidText.
