DVP specializes in getting businesses, house of worship, and various facilities prepped to be able to broadcast in HD over the internet. We will come to your facility and discuss the project requirements and provide a free consultation regarding our recommendations on camera placement, how many cameras, audio needs, wiring that will be necessary, camera types based on location and specific purpose, mixers, capture cards, and computer recommendations. Wireless cameras are also an option for some applications.
DVP can setup Live Streaming solution that is entirely manual, runs 24 hours, or a system that runs according to schedule. We will offer advice concerning the recommended broadcast bitrates based on audience research along with a study of the current facility internet broadcast capabilities. We will work closely with your current cable internet provider to make sure the necessary bandwidth is available. If no internet access is available, DVP will offer provider recommendations and serve as a communication liaison between your organization and the internet provider.
There a several options available when it comes to Live Streaming setup. A common setup in house of worship facilities, as an example, is the one camera approach. With the installation of certain HD streaming camera models, the facility would have the option of logging into the network remotely and controlling camera pan, tilt, and zoom. This is known as PTZ in the industry. Combine the PTZ capabilities with full HD quality and you have amazing video across the web. Choosing the appropriate camera will allow you to broadcast beautiful video as low bitrates, requiring less local network bandwidth. A high quality broadcast at a lowered bitrate will also provide great benefit to the viewing audience as it will be less taxing on their bandwidth availability.
We will also ensure that all necessary audio channels are captured and included as part of the broadcast. With the right convertors, mixers, and capture cards the video and audio will be of high quality, and also in perfect sync. We will provide full setup, testing, and training on the Live Streaming installation.
St Thomas The Apostle Church chose DVP to install a full Live Streaming solution at their house of worship campus in Smyrna, GA. The church, established in June 1966, has recently grown to over 6,000 registered families. A Live Streaming installation allows the church to use the most advanced technologies to broadcast to family members who are unable to attend services or those that want to watch a service again. This also allows the elderly shut ins to have an avenue at which to be able to tune into services. The live stream is available in HD and also available for satellite locations as well. In addition to broadcasting all the Sunday masses, the church also will occasionally broadcast special events and weddings. Using Google Analytics we are able to capture viewers that tune in worldwide to view broadcasts. The same sanctuary PTZ camera that is used for Live Streaming can also be used as a multipurpose surveillance camera as well.
In the case of St Thomas the Apostle Church, the decision was made to install a system that is fully automated. One PTZ camera was installed at the back of the sanctuary which can be controlled remotely if necessary. Otherwise the position of the camera by in large remains untouched. The video and audio feed wiring runs into their AV room through mixers, convertors, and capture cards feeding into a computer via a capture card. A secondary fully redundant MacPro was also installed in case the primary capture machine fails. Capture software such as Wirecast is setup to broadcast HD video at low bitrates to computer desktops and also the very important mobile streaming market. The streaming occurs flawlessly to all devices. DVP provides full turnkey setup, training of staff, rollout support, and continuous support as needed.
