9 ways to do live in churches part 4. In the first part we talk about a webcam, we talk about multi webcams in the second, we talk about a camcorder in the third and now we are going to talk about multi camcorders.

We are already raising the level of our transmission a lot. This is the pinnacle you can have in terms of quality and expense. When we talk about setting up a complete layout with several cameras, cutting table, audio table, cables, tripods, we are talking about investment. About 60, 70 thousand reais using one or 2 cameras. If we are going to make an investment in the average equipment, you will go over 200 thousand reais, easy. I’m making this video in 2022, so it’s good for you to have a dimension of that.

Is there anything cheaper? There is, but it’s used equipment or gambiarra. You have to analyze the equipment well when you buy it, find a nice company. So that you do this. The budget has all the acoustics of the church. To make it a great deal.

So, based on that, what are the ways to live in churches? When we have 2 to 4 cameras, essentially we need a cutting table connected. We recommend SDI. There is also HDMI, but SDI locks the connection, it is locked in both the camera and the cutting table. This way there is no danger of passing, kicking, losing transmission or anything like that. At the time of a live event, you know how it is, sometimes these things happen, it would run from here and run from there. So we recommend using SDI.

Buy 4K cameras when you go, we’re about to get to 5G, so the quality of TVs and smartphones is getting higher every day. You buy an equipment or full HD. In a few days, it may not be as useful as it is now.

But beauty to do live in churches, we need cameras, good cameras, 4K, vision of a nice cutting table, there are dozens of options on the market. Here at the company. We have some, some structure that we use to do live, it has a small structure. We use it for our internal lives or for some customers and who need up to 4 cameras. So we have a cutting table, an audio table and 4 cameras to be able to do the live.

So, cameras and the cutting table, from the cutting table there are cutting tables that the table itself already makes the Broadcast, you already connect it to the RJ 45, to the network cable and from there you can transmit live to the platform. There are others where you will need the capture card, take the output and have the output of the manager and the other output, which is for the capture card. This capture card output you plug into a computer or a notebook.

So we have these options to do live in churches. If it’s a computer or notebook, again, core i5 ninth generation or more, or core i7, if it’s the previous generation, 16GB of RAM. Yes, in that case, with these cameras and everything, 16 GB of RAM, NVME or SSD as a disk, you need to have 2 disks, 1 for the operating system, to run fast and another to save your videos for storage that we talk about , and a fiber optic internet and a cable that brings it from the router to your computer or notebook, if you’re using it.

Let’s not forget the importance of sound for you who are going to live in churches. The audio is the most important part of the video, so you have to pull a little cable from your soundboard there, test it well, see if the soundboard is equalized, do the sound check, as we say, bring a cable for the video table too, everything goes into it, there you do the audio equalization, increase volume, decrease volume, in short, whatever you need.

And now, finally, we are going to select a platform from which we will broadcast live. I already talk a lot about those who broadcast live worship, want to take the word of God to the faithful who are bedridden, whether in other cities, in other states or even because of a pandemic. You must not use Facebook, YouTube, Instagram. It’s free, but during your live, at the time of praise there, a bg is running, maybe just a background song, and then Facebook, the social network goes there and cuts your transmission. Because? Because they are copyright. They knock the transmission down.

So it’s no use broadcasting and something even worse than that, live is next, the guy watches, if you keep knocking down and coming back, the person won’t come back, the faithful won’t come back, so you have to have a transmission stable, in a controlled environment. Why the controlled environment? Because you know that bunch of suggestions that are there on YouTube, on Facebook when you’re watching live? Imagine you preaching the word, while you are reading a bible verse, and suddenly a bunch of suggestions start to appear that have nothing to do with the bible. Often, even the opposite, the Ukrainian war and pandemic, I don’t know what it is. Things that go against what you are preaching at that moment.

I’m sure your faithful won’t be too happy about this situation. Will stay? It can even be embarrassing situations for him and his family to be able to watch. That’s why it has to be a controlled environment, a platform that you can do. I’m talking about JMV Stream here, you can broadcast live, record, stay stored, put everything on your website, so that you can watch it later, whoever missed it can watch it later. It’s a Netflix from your church.

If you have any questions about the platform, our support is available from 8 am to midnight, Monday to Saturday. Sundays and holidays, from 2 pm to 10 pm. So this is the 4th way for you, live in churches, live stream your church service. If you choose this way, it’s definitely the best, but also, remember, it’s the most expensive. The biggest investment you will ever make, but it will stay a professional business.
