Public Display

Boost public transparency and citizen experience

The OpenMeeting Public Display shows critical details about how your meeting is proceeding and makes it easy for the public to following meeting action.

City Council and County Board leaders understand the importance of providing a high quality of life and positive public experience. Council and board meetings provide citizens a window into the inner workings of their elected officials and local government process. Unfortunately, it can be difficult for interested and involved citizens to hear and follow everything going on in meetings – when they are able to attend in person, and near impossible to when they are not physically present (i.e., watching live and archived meetings online).


The OpenMeeting Public Display creates meeting visuals that are accessible in person and remotely, making it much easier for onlookers to understand what is being discussed and absorb the proceedings of a public meeting.

Roll Call

Replace decades-old verbal roll call with fast, simultaneous electronic roll call. Each member can mark themselves present on their tablet with the Member App. The results are instantly displayed for both the meeting members and the public to see.

Motions, Seconds, & Voting

When meeting members motion, second, and vote on their tablet with the Member App, the results are instantly shown on the Public Display. This visual communication helps everyone follow the meeting action and improves public transparency.

Discussion Management

The Public Display helps you avoid interruptions and prevent confusion by displaying a speaker queue. Meeting members request to speak by tapping a button in the Member App on their tablets. This forms a speaker queue based on the order of the requests. Everyone can see who is speaking and who is next in line.

View the Agenda

With the Public Display, everyone involved in the meeting can view the agenda item currently being discussed and voted on.

Public Comment timer

Maintain control over public comment and help citizens know how much time they have left to speak. There is also an option to expand the timer to fullscreen.

Technology Integration

The Public Display is easy to integrate with your current video and display technology, keeping everyone in the room informed. If you are broadcasting or streaming your open meetings, the Public Display can appear full screen during voting sequences for even greater visibility and clarity around the proceedings for remote participants. The Public Display is flexible and easy to build into your current set-up and powerful enough to support your future aspirations.

When combined with the Meeting Manager and the Discussion Manager, anything is possible including active audio control, automatic video pan, zoom and switching. OpenMeeting experts work with your technology teams and partners to get the most out of your system and create truly engaging meetings for public participants in person and remotely.
