Parliamentary website www.inthehouse.co.nz upgraded ready for September election


The www.inthehouse.co.nz website, which hosts the video record of every session from the New Zealand Parliament since 2009, has been upgraded ready for this year’s general election.

Christchurch-based company Tandem Studios devised and created the website and has managed it for Parliament since its inception and says that the upgraded site will make it easy for everyone who is interested in Parliamentary content to search for it and view it on any internet-connected screen at a time and place that suits them.

“The video content is edited and archived within the website and can be easily searched, found and shared,” says Tandem Studios’ Managing Director Dave Dunlay. “There have now been more than a total of three million views of the 23,000 videos in the video archive.

“We are expecting a high level of interest in both the live stream of parliamentary sessions this year and in the video archive as people get ready to cast their votes later this year. It’s a great way to review how our representatives have performed during the last parliamentary term and to keep up to date with election year developments.”

Tandem Studios records, re-formats and re-purposes Parliament’s traditional TV content and publishes it on the website www.inthehouse.co.nz in small segments that are easy for viewers to search for and locate using its own leading edge online media tool LaBon™ (Living and Breathing Online Newsletter).

“We know that more and more people globally are watching television content online at a time that suits them and we know that www.inthehouse.co.nz will be a particularly useful and popular resource this year.”
