Not that the demand was great, but some people -- newspaper reporters unable to attend meetings in person among them -- will be happy to know that the village of Palatine's online video streaming is finally up and running again.

The service, which includes live streaming and video on-demand, allows viewers to watch village council, plan commission and zoning board of appeals meetings through a few simple mouse clicks.


It had been down for several months due to an equipment malfunction, and the repair process was fraught with delays.

According to Assistant Village Manager Sam Trakas, the main piece of equipment that handles the camera switcher and main circuit board failed back in January. Trakas spent a couple weeks researching alternative solutions, but ultimately found that repairing the system was the most cost-effective option.

"Unfortunately, when I received it back, the packing was poor and the case was damaged pretty bad," Trakas said.

A new delivery arrived early last month, and after a couple weeks of testing, Trakas said it's functioning again.
