I inform the House that the Department of Parliamentary Services has today released its innovative broadcast services, Parlview, onto the APH website. Parlview enables users to watch, pause, search and download parliamentary proceedings events and historical material. Progressively, Parlview will provide access to more than 55,000 hours of archived parliamentary audiovisual recording, dating from 1991. Much of this footage has never been seen by the general public. Near-live webcasts of parliamentary proceedings are still available on the APH websites, however, unlike Parlview, these webcasts are not searchable or downloadable. DPS is also working towards providing access to Parlview on mobile devices. I sincerely recommend to everybody to have a look at this new service the parliament is providing.
