About Aircasting

Our Aircasts are meant to politically inform and engage Virginians. Aircasts are live streamed and recorded videos that include viewer input and comments, and are then archived in related posts and profiles.

We focus particularly on"Online Town Halls" which are curator-assisted Aircasts.

Using their laptops, elected officials or candidates can Aircast updates, question and answer sessions, and general announcements at any time. These videos can also be archived in a candidate’s profile on the Hub.

Model of Video Updates

Democracy onAir will be encouraging officials & their staff to produce regular video updates via what we call “mobile aircasting” i.e. using smart phones & accessories to easily and inexpensively live streaming on YouTube w/chat questions from viewers.

We will be hosting these Aircasts on our YouTube channel and displaying them in specific posts and making them available to be embedded in other websites.
