SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Johnson County Board of Supervisors launched its new meeting management software system during Thursday’s meeting.

IQM2 is a Cloud-based system that provides citizens across the globe to live stream video and audio of meetings from the web or cell phones.

As of now, the supervisors will continue to test the system. Therefore, only meetings held in the second-floor ballroom of the Johnson County Administration Building will be available. As the supervisors become more familiar with the new technology, meeting information, audio, and video for other supervisor meetings in other locations will be available.

Archived documents are also being transferred to the new site.

The county has been offering on-demand audio and video recordings of supervisors’ meetings since 2009. However, the old technology required file preparation. This resulted in a several-day delay for the content to reach the website.

The new IQM2 technology provides real-time access.

In Thursday’s meeting, the supervisors only suffered slight technical difficulties. For example, the system requires a switch in audio file from formal to informal meeting. This took the supervisors about a minute to do, but they ensure it will get faster as time goes on.
