Governor's health council uses local company to bring meetings to Alaska
On July 30, Alaskans across the state were able to tune in to a live web broadcast of the governor's Alaska Health Care Strategies Council. The meeting took place in the BP Energy center in Anchorage, and a live video and audio broadcast allowed any Alaskan with an internet connection to watch the proceedings. Juneau video production company G-Force Productions has contracted to provide live Internet video coverage of all the meetings. The remaining meeting dates are Sept. 17, Oct. 15, Nov. 12h and Dec. 3. In addition, G-Force will also be videotaping the meeting to air on 360 North, a new channel produced by KTOO-TV.

"With new advances in video technology, events can be broadcast live online, very similar to a live TV broadcast," said G-Force owner and video producer Gabe Strong. "With Alaska's geographically separated communities, it makes a lot of sense to broadcast important events such as this one to the entire state. Without the road system that most states have, we just have to get creative sometimes."

There is a live webstream link at G-Force Productions website at under the 'News' section. The link will become active the days of the meetings. The meeting times are from 1 p.m.-5 p.m. each day. Alaskans need to have a current version of Windows Media Player installed on their computers to watch.

G-Force Productions is a full service video and multimedia company offering video and multimedia solutions for SE Alaska and beyond. Owner Gabe Strong attempts to balance running his business with being a stay at home dad.
