Through streaming of services, churches can reach a far wider audience.
APi Sound & Visual is able to upgrade existing systems relatively simply (depending on the age of the equipment) to enable your services to be streamed. A web stream can be viewed live or on demand (like a catch-up TV service).
We frequently use ‘PTZ’ type cameras, as it is possible to steer them and follow the subject, and save common preset positions for quick access. This will be recorded onto media such a USB drive or SD memory card.
The audio input is usually taken from the existing sound system.
As with all of our systems we place ease of operation and reliability at the top of the list when it comes to equipment specification. We use simple push button switching between cameras and dedicated streaming devices with just start/stop functions.
We avoid the use of computers to provide these functions so that there is no risk of crashing and no updates to install. This will mean multiple users will be confident at recording without difficulty. As well as installing the equipment APi will provide training.
We can even provide 4G broadband solutions where signal strength allows for churches without existing connections.
