I Begin it: In a change in the Plenary session of the old thirst, it was resolved the physical change of the support team to the plenary session, shorthand and annals, being built a separation through a wall. That caused the difficulty in the accompaniment of the sessions for this team, that was solved with the placement of a system of closed circuit of tv. It was a simple system that possessed 3 (three) webcam and the audio was captured through the table of sound of the plenary session.

The Innovation: leaving of the equipment already installed, in meeting with the presidency of the house, I suggested the purchase of a computer with plate of video capture for transmission of the sessions for Internet.

All these houses were showing the developed softwares and in use for the same ones, we decided then to place in the screen the session plenary, live, that was happening on that moment in Fortaleza. All there presents will be stunned and many didn’t believe to be a transmission live of Fortaleza to Salvador. In a phone call, through my cellular one, I communicated that the session was being attended in the auditorium of the center of savior’s conventions, and our president, at that time, Alderman José Maria Couto, congratulated the presents, what was registered for it historizes it of Fortaleza in the annals of this legislative house.

Today: The House possesses the Tv Fortaleza, that is transmitted by the tv net to cable net of our city, through the channel 6, and we continued capturing the sign directly of the studios of the tv and showing all the programming for Internet through our site
