9 ways to successfully live in your church, we talked earlier about using a webcam, multi webcams, a DSLR or camcorder, multi DSLRs or camcorders. One smartphone, multi smartphones, one IP Camera,. Now we are in part 8, where we are going to talk about using multi IP cameras. Is there a way to use it? Has! First thing for requirement, go to the previous video and see how to transmit with an IP Camera. You need this base to come here and see how it broadcasts multi IP Camera.
There are 2 ways to do it, with the multi IP cameras, the first using independent IP cameras, that way, you will have independent transmissions, then you will have an IP camera in the pulpit where your site will have a player for the pulpit, you will have a IP camera taking the entire church on your website, there will be another player with the camera, so there will be several transitions, it’s not a very nice experience, but it depends. We have clients that use it. So there goes the idea of each one and the experience that each one wants to pass on to their faithful.
It’s something you have to pay attention to, it’s the audio, the ambient audio is not cool to be transmitted, you have to get a little cabin from the soundboard, bring that little cabin, put it on P2 of the IP camera, so you have the soundboard audio and not the ambient audio. Because, for example, you have a camera focused on the stage, it’s back there in the audience, it’s going to get the local audio of what people are talking about and then it’s not ideal. The ideal is to take it from the soundboard, from the main sound there that is being played at the moment.
And another way to do multi IP Camera is using a DVR. There are many people who use CCTV and CCTV and have a DVR. It has an RTSP output, this RTSP output. Then it has an RTSP output by Camera or it has some DVR, you will have to research if yours has it or if you don’t have it.
If you’re going to buy some DVRS, it has an output that looks like this, the main video from a main camera and next to it the other IP cameras, it’s really cool! And then it’s like a single transmission. Because it’s a camera with the little players of the other IP cameras. A main IP camera, on which you will broadcast to the social network, to the platform, and then it will be a single broadcast.
And for the social network, I’ve already mentioned it in previous videos, but I don’t recommend it, because they’ll take your live down for copyright. The faithful will be subject to any kind of suggestion from YouTube that often, or from Facebook from Instagram and their ads, which often have nothing to do with the live. It has nothing to do with your church and, on the contrary, they can lead the faithful to disperse to another path that has nothing to do with them.
So you will do the live with a controlled environment on your website, use the social network intelligently just to invite the public there to watch your church live on your website.
So, DVR, connected to multi-cameras, you have a single output. It’s a cool idea too, and you have to play the audio, see people, don’t forget the audio. There is the DVR that has P2 input for audio. Otherwise you will have a silent transmission and then it will not solve the problem. Or else you will have to work around, get the DVR, put it on OBS, get the IP Camera, pull OBS, OBS transmits. You can do it too, but it’s not cool.
You think all the time you have to do this, it’s not very cool, the quality of the transmission is extremely compromised. If you are going to use it, OBS go to the previous options that we talked about, there are several ways for you to do it in a more professional way with more quality, which will take the essentials, which is the word of God to your faithful in a nice experience for your faithful . Because if your live is dropping, bad image, bad sound. People will not watch. So that’s it, a big hug and until the last step.
