Equipment for internet viewing has developed quite rapidly over the last couple of years.

video streaming can be significantly useful for public entities that have a great number of remote locations. Park systems, for example, can share virtual tour information between sites so that a patron at one site can peruse the facilities available at another. This information can then be linked to on-tine booking and registration functions so that a full transaction can be completed immediately, if the patron desires. This same system can be made available over the Internet, so the patron can either make a choice while they're within the park system, or at home or at the office.

Similarly library systems can stream video between branches so that patrons at remote branches, for instance, can take advantage of lectures. book talks, seminars, etc., that may only be able to take place in-person at the central library based on meeting room availability. Fire departments can use video streaming for a variety of purposes, including distributed training to various shifts and video messaging between, for example, the fire chief and station captains for command and control functions.

Through interconnections with public school systems, public safety entities can also provide video content related to fire safety, drug abuse prevention, vocations, etc., for access by classrooms and individual students.
