Leveraging the latest in video tools and technology, open.media is the nonprofit online transparency portal for governments of all sizes. Open.Media allows you to upload, timestamp and archive video of meetings and proceedings with searchable, automated transcriptions. Constituents can now engage from any computer or mobile device in real-time, easily sharing excerpts and helping you meet citizens where they’re at!
In 2013, the Open Media Foundation (OMF) designed an innovative, government video-on-demand platform for the Colorado State Legislature. The new software cut costs in half while doubling web traffic to coloradochannel.net. In response to this success, we set-out to create a similar solution for governments of all sizes and Open.Media was born! Even the smallest of governments can join the national movement to expand transparency and civic engagement with Open.Media: a non profit alternative to companies like Accela, Granicus and Swagit.
Keep up with the times!
With the technological advancements of today, proprietary streaming services simply cannot keep up. Odds are good there’s a teenager in your community with a better streaming solution than your local government. Open.Media is the open-source, nonprofit alternative with an open, innovative design that lets you combine any camera and encoder with free streaming services like YouTube, for a superior experience at a fraction of the cost of the competition, free for small governments*.
