Complementing E-government services through the use of video: the livecity project

Vishanth Weerakkody , Andreea Molnar , Zahir Irani and Ramzi El-Haddadeh

In this paper, the authors argue that complementing existing e- government services through the use of a video-to-video platform could alleviate this problem. This paper presents the concept of the LiveCity project which proposes the delivery of high definition video over existing Internet infrastructure to enhance public services. The potential benefits of overlaying video on top of e- government applications are examined through use case scenarios.
