TCC Webcam goes live

Kamloops, B.C. - The City of Kamloops now has real-time streaming live video for its recreation facilities. The Tournament Capital Centre Fieldhouse camera is the first to go live, with the Canada Games Aquatic Centre and Hillside Stadium to follow shortly in 2011. Phase 2 will take place in 2012, with installations at McArthur Island Sport & Event Centre NHL and OLY Rinks.

The new webcam can be viewed at www.kamloops.ca/webcams.

This new tool will allow facility patrons instant awareness of user activity levels so that they can make more informed decisions on how or when they wish to use the City facilities. Additionally, tournament and event planners can view the Tournament Capitalís facilities in real time to assist in decision making and bid proposals.

Future consideration may also be given to installations at Interior Savings Centre, Norbrock Stadium, McArthur Island soccer fields and the Tournament Capital Ranch Slo-pitch facility.
