Summary of Basic System Recommendation and Options
review of systems in neighboring localities, General Services is
recommending the installation of a (3) three pan-tilt zoom (PTZ) camera to
provide live or delayed broadcast
over the local Adelphia cable network
and/or video archival. Two
cameras will cover the Board of Supervisor's bench from the rear of the
meeting room. One camera will be mounted from the ceiling located in the
center of the room to the rear of the chairman's chair. This camera will
cover speakers at the lecturn.
video/audio system requires an operator. A COE student will be recommended
for this position on a part-time, temporary basis. The video/audio system
will be located in the small room in the rear of the meeting room. The
operator will operate and control the live video/audio from this room.
There will be a monitor located in this room to assist the operator. The
operator can view the monitor for moving and zooming of the non-live

cabling infrastructure for all possible options, before the ceilings and
walls are closed in by the contractor.
