I inform the Senate that the Department of Parliamentary Services has today released its innovative broadcast service—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 archival parliamentary audiovisual records 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 website. However, unlike ParlView, these webcasts are not searchable or downloadable.

DPS is working towards providing access to ParlView on mobile devices.
