We are having a live webinar on Equipment Recommendations for Streaming Video on February 13th, see more info here. Choosing the right equipment for live streaming your church services can be overwhelming. There are many factors to consider, such as your budget, the size of your congregation, and the complexity of your desired setup.
Here are some general tips to help you make the right choices:
1. Define your goals. What do you hope to achieve by live streaming your services? Do you want to reach a wider audience, connect with homebound members, or create a record of your services for future reference? Once you know your goals, you can start to narrow down your options.
2. Consider your budget. Live streaming equipment can range in price from a few hundred dollars to tens of thousands of dollars. It’s important to set a realistic budget before you start shopping.
3. Think about the size of your congregation. If you have a small congregation, you may not need a lot of equipment. A simple camera and microphone setup may be sufficient. However, if you have a large congregation, you may need multiple cameras, a video switcher, and other equipment.
4. Decide on your streaming platform. There are many different platforms you can use to live stream your services, such as StreamingChurch.tv. There are also free social media platforms. Each platform has its own requirements and features.
5. Get input from your team. Talk to your worship team, your tech team, and other members of your church to get their input on what kind of equipment you need.
We will discuss all of these and more this in more detail during the Equipment Recommendations for Streaming Video Webinar on February 13th. We will also share our favorite equipment, like live encoders, cameras, switchers and much more. As always, we will have a live Q and A as part of the webinar. Sign up and reserve your seat now.
