How do I stream to Facebook Live?  That's a question that we get asked all of the time. 

This quick tutorial video and article teaches you about the four basic components, how to setup your encoding software and the optimum settings in Facebook in order to stream your live event to Facebook.

Read this article and you will soon become an expert on streaming using the Roland VR-4HD.

We sell a lot of the VR-4HD mixers at $2795 and find that they are a great upgrade to video mixers sold just a few years ago for a lot more money.  The VR-4HD is an HD-compatible all-in-one audio/video mixer with USB 3.0 connectivity.  Click here for more information.

Need a huge screen for gym or auditorium use?

Evenroll

When you want the protein and to skip the carbs, all you need is the meat and cheese, and not the whole sandwich, right?!  But when was the last time the restaurant let you order that way? 

You already know that a projection screen is better than a painted white wall for image quality, so you called only to find that a 24' wide electric screen costs about $9000. 

You need that screen, but don't know how $9000 is going to fit into your budget.   

Are you willing to do a little extra work in order to save some money?  I'll bet that you can guess that I'm going to tell you that you can order a projection screen without the "bun" and the extra trimmings. 

The Draper Evenroll Rope and Pulley Manual projection screen comes in large sizes from 168-288" wide and in 16:9, 4:3, square and 2.35:1 cinemascope formats. 

It's a simple system; you will have to raise and lower the screen with a marine-grade pulley system without the benefit of remote control, electricity and anything other than a little hand and arm strength.  The rope cable won't twist or bind, and you'll get the same Matt White projection surface found in many other Draper models.

The Evenroll Rope and Pulley manual screens start at about $2000 and top out at a 24x24' for just over $3000 -- less than one-third as much as a comparable electric screen.  If you'd like more information on the Evenroll manual screen, call us at (800) 747-7301.

April 18, 2017

For the past few years, Shure has been at the forefront of radio frequency (RF) spectrum issues and has been busy in Washington DC acting as an advocate for wireless microphone users. In an effort to help you adapt to the results of the FCC Spectrum Auction affecting the 600 MHz frequency band, Shure is announcing a trade-in and rebate program for its wireless systems.

What is the Program?
Users will receive a rebate on the purchase of new Shure wireless microphones and personal monitor systems accompanied by the trade-in of wireless systems operating in the 600 MHz frequency band (614-698 MHz).

Shure and other wireless manufacturers' products are eligible for trade-in.

Which Shure systems qualify for the rebate? What are the rebate amounts?

Living as One Multisite Platform - the new standard in live event video delivery

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

LAO

Have you ever wondered how to extend live video to other sites at a viewable size larger than a desktop computer or a mobile device? The Living as One Multisite Platform was designed from the ground up to do just that -- to deliver audio and video to remote locations with unprecedented reliability, quality, and simplicity. And it uses the public internet. LAO can also stream to in-house venues on your network while reaching out to campus sites via the public internet. 

The platform uses a new patented method of streaming which ensures zero content loss throughout the entire transmission path, even in the case of a complete internet outage! This means that you'll enjoy a stress-free playback experience which is high quality, interruption-free, and much more affordable than other similar solutions.

Before joining the Multisite Platform, many of Living As One’s customers were frustrated with interruptions they experienced during live video playback. Even though those churches chose expensive equipment and fast internet connections, the products they were using were not designed to account for the unpredictable nature of the internet which results in buffering video and even complete blackouts. That tension is not good for anyone - tech teams, campus pastors or your guests. 

Over 70 churches have joined onto the platform in the past year of offering the solution to the public.  Read what some of them have to say.

What others say

I had consulted with some of the AVL Integrators whose ads had crossed my email/online path. The scope they were used to, including the cost, kept me searching. I talked with some integrators who wanted thousands (tens of thousands in some cases) of dollars to produce the initial design for our upgrades, and then would start the search for bids on that design. I kept searching. I was looking for someone who would be able to work with a church our size (1,000-1,200 in attendance per weekend total in 4 services), brainstorm with me on a design plan, and then walk through the priorities/cost maze that would likely present itself.

Then I remembered a voicemail I had received from Dave Horn of Truth Seeker Productions. When I listened to his voicemail, and then found out through other means that he had done significant work with a sister church of ours in Columbus, I had the feeling...that's right...the feeling that this was the guy to help us. So I called him, we met, and the path forward that he suggested was a very comfortable one for me, and the rest is history.

We are very satisfied with the projection upgrades in our worship center and fireside room (a total of 7 laser projectors), the larger, 16 X 9 screens everywhere, motorized screens where necessary, installation of 2 Allen & Heath digital audio consoles, upgraded LED lighting and controller, and a state of the art video control and routing system, allowing us to utilize IMag and live streaming.

Dave Horn and the Team at Truth Seeker are knowledgeable and up to date about all things AVL; good listeners, strategists, installers, and trainers. And, great service, even after the final check was paid!

They know how to work with Houses of Worship, "budgets," and how to help you make tough decisions. You'll be glad you contracted with them. We are!

Building Generations for Jesus Christ,
Pastor Brad Pilkington, Spring Hills Baptist Church
