In April 2007, ATM S.A. entered into an agreement with the Dolnośląskie Regional Council Office on providing the ATMAN X-Stream telecommunications service.
ATM S.A. has been already regularly cooperating with the Promotion Bureau of the Warsaw City Council. Thanks to that cooperation, any interested Internet user may view at the City Council’s website, in real time, meetings of the City Council and the councilmen’s debates on the city development projects, the budget, investments, and other issues important to the citizens.
Recently, ATM S.A. entered into a similar agreement with the Dolnośląskie Regional Council Office. The contract provides for delivery of the X-Stream service to transmit sessions of the Regional Council. The first trial session transmission took place on April 19-20 in the Ossoliński Palace in Wrocław. The next session to be transmitted via the Internet thanks to the ATMAN X-Stream service will take place on May 17-18 in the Książ Castle. Under the contract between ATM and the Dolnośląskie Regional Council Office, all sessions taking place in this year will be transmitted.
”We are very glad that the ATMAN X-Stream service has been appreciated by another customer, as important as the Dolnośląskie Regional Council Office,” said Aneta Guziewska, ATMAN X-Stream project manager, ATM S.A. ”The service has been designed to enable using modern technologies to fulfill needs of local-government agencies, as well as other customers. The interest aroused by the service not only demonstrates its usefulness for the Warsaw City Council Office and Dolnośląskie Regional Council Office, but also, we hope, significantly contributes to building the information society. We are proud that thanks to our technology, the Warsaw citizens have been already able for some time to view on-line the City Council sessions and that citizens of the Dolnośląskie Province now also have that possibility.”
The service is based on the state-of-the-art Internet technologies and using it does not require any special skills. The only requirements include Internet access and installing the standard Windows Media Player software. Any Internet user who visits the appropriate website can view the live transmission on his/her computer.
