COVERAGE IN A TIME OF COVID-19 IS TURNED OVER TO ROBOTS
During what is expected to be the last week of the Legislature this year, KTOO will no longer have a physical presence in the Capitol Building with camera operators for Gavel to Gavel coverage on 360North.org. and public television.
That coverage will be provided by the Legislative Affairs Agency Media Services for committees. Gavel Alaska has developed a way to send those grainy video feeds to the KTOO control room for broadcast on television.
For floor sessions in the House and Senate, the public broadcasting station will use robotic cameras starting Monday.
Gavel Alaska provides live coverage of the Alaska Legislature, including committee meetings, floor sessions, press conferences, and other legislative events.
