The Denton city government has joined Dallas, Austin, Allen, Frisco and other cities that have contracted with Swagit Productions to improve its streaming video online.

The upgrade should limit buffering and improve archived video playback, including the pause, fast-forward and rewind features. The city uses the service to stream many public meetings live, after which they are automatically time-stamped, indexed with the agenda and published on the city’s archives.

Live streaming and archived recordings are available for meetings of the Denton City Council, Planning and Zoning Commission, Public Utilities Board, Mobility Committee, Economic Development Partnership Board and the Traffic Safety Commission.
