ECTV managed again to make us fools by failing to accomplish the successful live broadcast of the inauguration of Mayor DeMaria, the City Council and the School Committee Monday night.
For many of us, the inauguration came to an end at 6:10 p.m. just as Father Cha Cha of the Immaculate Conception Church delivered the invocation at the beginning of the ceremony.
The ceremony began at 6:00 p.m.
Then the screen went blank with this notation: “This video file cannot be played. (Error Code:232400)”
Others we spoke with regarding the gaffe indicated the ceremony broadcast went on and off, more off than on.
Ours never came back on.
Others complained the stage was not properly illuminated, and that the camera was too far away from the stage, making it difficult to identify the new members.
Let this botched broadcast be a reminder – ECTV is not the mayor’s personal television station.
It is not his decision what is to be shown and what is to be deleted.Continue reading “The Botched Inauguration”
