KDOT's implementation of streaming audio allows computers
connected to the Internet to listen to live 'streaming'
audio for the public reading of contractor's proposed
bids and announcements. This technology provides an
unique opportunity to participate in the bid letting
process by allowing anyone to listen from virtually
any PC with access to the Internet.
Computers will connect to this multicast stream and
play the audio via Windows Media Player. This stream
will be a live broadcast, but due to data transfer latency,
a delay of approximately 10 to 30 seconds is typical.
Users wanting to connect and listen to this stream
need to open their web browser (i.e. Internet Explorer),
and enter the following address:
Windows Media Player should start automatically. If
Media Player has never been used, the user may be prompted
for settings before the stream can be heard.
The multicast stream will only be active approximately
15 minutes before the the letting time the day of the
letting and the session will end at the conclusion of
the bid opening.
To listen to the audio broadcast of the bid letting through a conference call, dial (866) 620-7326 and you will be asked for a conference code. The conference code is 5895748207 followed by a # sign. The conference call line is limited to 125 callers.
