Seaside city uses Monarch HDX H.264 encoder to deliver great-quality live webcasts to its highly engaged, involved citizens
Inhabited by many celebrities, including actor Clint Eastwood who served as the mayor of this quaint and charming seaside community in California, the city of Carmel-by-the-Sea with just 4,500 residents, and one square mile of land, is a well-kept secret. Wanting to maintain the old-world charm, and against any kind of radical development, the city, at times, had strange policies—no street signs, minimal night-time lighting, no high-heels on the beach regulation, pro-nature guidelines, and even had ice cream cones banned for a while. Paradoxically, when it came to dissemination of information from the city, the residents wanted only the latest and the best technology used. Many engaged residents attend the city council meetings regularly to ensure they continue to have an impact on the outcome. For the last seven years, council meetings have also been live streamed for residents’ convenience.
