Sliq Media Technologies Wins Caribbean Legislature Contract

Automated recording and transcription workflows, cross-platform streaming support Parliament of Trinidad and Tobago (August 19, 2014)
DMN Newswire--2014-8-19-- Sliq Media Technologies announces that the Parliament of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago has selected its Harmony Suite to automatically record, transcribe and stream parliamentary proceedings, minimizing labor costs and workflow errors associated with legacy transcription processes. 

The Sliq solution transitions the Parliament to an automated workflow that reduces the time required to create official public records.  The automated workflow will streamline their existing process, reducing the Legislature?s reliance on traditional stenography for transcriptions.  The upgrade will also add cross-platform streaming capabilities for the first time, broadening the delivery of legislative content across multiple consumer devices, including web and mobile targets.  Collectively, the marriage of Hansard workflow and cross-platform webcasting delivers a unified service to the public that to date has not existed for the Parliament of Trinidad and Tobago.

"The use of stenography technology in government meetings continues to diminish as more efficient tools become available to create public records," said Sanjiv Menezes, president, Sliq Media Technologies. "Sliq provides an all-in-one, easy-to-use solution that combines transcription tools and cross-platform streaming to establish a far more efficient workflow with reliable results."


The Sliq Harmony Suite enhances the user experience with cross-workflow indexing tools that deliver all relevant information from parliamentary proceedings alongside video and audio streams.  While Sliq?s Razorback multi-channel encoders capture HD-quality (H.264) video and pristine audio streams, Harmony?s time stamped indexing tools ensure that content associated with parliamentary proceedings is uniformly presented alongside webcasts.  This guarantees that all relevant legislative content, including speakers and orders of the day, is made available to constituents in one place, with simple access to specific points of interest.

The agreement includes video support at two venues and single-track audio support at three venues.  Sliq Hawkeye tools will provide monitoring of all video and audio levels across the workflow, helping staff centrally monitor performance parameters for quality assurance?and quickly react to rare troubleshooting issues via diagnostics and alerting tools.

"This project advances our Caribbean presence to three countries, and we are in active discussions with several nearby countries that have recognized the efficiency and quality gains of neighboring nations that have transitioned to the Sliq platform," said Nic Cote, VP, Business Development for Sliq.  "The launch of the Harmony Suite for the Parliament of Trinidad and Tobago also gives us an opportunity to go back this winter and enjoy a warm meal with our customers at Husseins Restaurant!"
