BOS Meetings Now Easier to Catch Online

Fairfax County offers new online streaming tool to watch Board of Supervisors meetings live or on demand.

BOS Meetings Now Easier to Catch Online

The  Department of Cable and Consumer Services, in partnership with the  Board of Supervisors, has introduced a new online streaming media solution to  view Board of Supervisors meetings on demand.

Using technology from streaming media content provider Granicus, viewers can now keyword search and navigate directly to specific Board meeting agenda items.

The video link launches a split-screen window, with video and options to the left and the meeting agenda to the right. By clicking on an individual agenda item, the video will jump to that portion of the meeting.

"Board meeting information is now more accessible. You can watch Board coverage anywhere you usually watch video - on Channel 16, a computer, iPhone, iPad or Android device," said Michael S. Liberman, director, Department of Cable and Consumer Services, in a news release. "We will continue to look for opportunities to reach out to more viewers."

The most recent meetings are added on the Thursday following each  Board meeting. A separate  live video stream is also available during the meeting.

  • On Demand Video of all 2013 and 2012 Board meetings is available  online.
    • Dozens of video on demand programs are available  online and on Cox Cable Channel 16.
  • In addition to video,  Board of Supervisors meeting materials are archived.
    • Materials include the meeting summary, podcast audio, news and board presentations.
  • Additional short-form videos are available on the county's  YouTube channel.
