In the last year there is allot of buzz in the church community about Live Streaming in HD…. going to HD. Typically, you will start with a new camera! STOP, there are more cost effective ways to appear to have HD with what you are currently using now.
If you have not had the pleasure of using Wirecast software, I strongly nudge you to look into it. You can get a free trial download and don’t miss out on our 5% discount coupon code when you decide to buy.
There are many online services that are NOT using HD cameras but are able to enhance the signal enough to look better than it was, hence a kind of HD. I know, I did not believe it myself until I started investigating it. I might just be able to save your Church or Organization some dollars until they gather all the funds for a the actual HD upgrade. Even then, you should not see a significant improvement from the low budget Enhanced H implementation.
Looking for a step up with an outrageous HD robotic camera? Recently, we went to Calvary Chapel Westgrove and saw this little puppy in action.
Ultra small robotic cameras are now what is being replaced with clunky systems. The robotic part is the number one failure point, but this little gem is like the Toyota of robotic and camera combo devices.
I am referring to the Sony BRC-Z330 approx $4,200-$4,500 (HD and other options) and the remote controller RM-BR300 $1,300.
Together they are about $5,600, but they will cover a huge area and are quite and easy to install. The camera is so quick and the remote acts as a video switcher so it is very very nice compact and user friendly.
