Under the Basic Law of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China, which came into effect on the same day, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) is vested with legislative power and the Legislative Council is the legislature of the Region. The main functions of the Legislative Council are to enact, amend or repeal laws; examine and approve budgets, taxation and public expenditure, and raise questions on the work of the government. The Legislative Council is also given the power to endorse the appointment and removal of the judges of the Court of Final Appeal and the Chief Judge of the High Court, as well as the power to impeach the Chief Executive.
Central Government Complex, Tamar is the new location for the offices of the Government of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. The new government building neither uses Chinese or European government building designs, but a rather a mix of postmodern architecture and low-frills international design. Located at the Tamar site, the complex houses the Office of the Chief Executive of Hong Kong, the legislative Council of Hong Kong and the Central Government Office.
With our advanced digital signage solution, the Legislative Council can distribute information in common areas, display news and updates in waiting rooms and show clear information from a reliable source.
onActivity and DISE helped the HKSAR Government develop an advanced digital signage system for the Legislative Council. Using the DISE solution, over 50 players are installed in the Legislative Council Complex, for information display and live feed about LEGCO meetings, including voting status, live video streaming of current speaker, and LEGCO Event Scheduling System (LESS). The system also supports ad-hoc message display, such as real-time information, news and updates.
LEGCO can benefit from improved communication to staff, councillors, media, and other visiting guests. Scheduled or immediate content can help inform every one of happenings in the Council.
