Visual/Projection and Live Streaming systems.

Live video feed to Hall.

We can install a Live Video feed to screens in the church if the view is restricted or to s separate room. By Installing a fixed camera in the church we can relay the service through to a projection screen or Monitor screens. We also often fit a connection point so Video content can be viewed independently for use when the room is hired out for instance.

The photograph shows a Projector mounted in the ceiling timber work and an electric drop down screen mounted at one end of a Community Hall which is part of a Church in Leicester. We fitted a HDMI input point in the hall for the users to use the Projector separately.

A step up from this is integrating the camera to enable a Live stream to the internet. If you don't have any camera's installed we can install one or more along with the equipment for live streaming, see below for more information. We can usually install a streaming system in less time than a full audio installation of course, so contact us today for a quote.

Live and on Demand Audio/Visual Streaming.

  • Auto streamingAuto Streaming
  • We are getting many more enquiries now for Live and On Demand Streaming services. You will of course require a broadband connection at the location you wish to transmit the A/V stream from. Although there are units available that utilise the 4G network if you have sufficient signal. Our basic installation of an Automatic Encoder and a feed from a HD camera will enable you to get started. A simple push button to start the Stream or in the case of some of our Digital audio systems, we can start the stream when you power up the audio system or press a button on your Control panel. If you already stream from a laptop webcam we can even integrate the system so you still operate the laptop just the same but your video feed will be from a better quality HD camera with sound fed from you existing audio system. So you can continue to stream via Zoom or your favourite platform. Units are available that will allow you to Stream and also make a recording onto a Memory card for later editing and distribution.

  • So you can have a simple turn on and stream system, or opt for an install that enables you to continue using your laptop to stream as you do now. So if you currently stream from a laptop to Youtube, Facebook, Twitch, Zoom, etc our camera install will enable you to carry on as you do now but with a HD camera feed and better audio quality with a feed directly from you sound system. A step up from this is for a PTZ camera install. This will enable you to Pan and Zoom as you require rather than having a fixed camera that covers just a part of the church. Alternatively you could have a number of cameras positioned to cover areas you choose, both of these options would require you to have someone to operate the equipment. This will allow you to change cameras, display laptop images and logo's etc. You can fade from one to the other and it will also feed your in house monitors or projectors.

    Please contact us if you require a visit and advice/quotation for updating or a new installation. Contact Page.

    Please enquire with you own church administrators and Diocese websites regarding copyright. If you are streaming to Youtube or Facebook they already have some licensing attached as long as you adhere to their terms and conditions.

    Specialist Speaker installations

    An example of some of the more specialist work we do is supplying the Altus 300 range of speakers along with Yamaha Sub woofers and Yamaha amplification to provide sound of sufficient volume and quality for the new computer based electronic church organs. With multiple channels of audio being fed into multi channel amplification and then to a number of Altus 300's and also Sub woofers to accommodate the lowest frequencies. We have recently installed 8 x Altus 300's and 2 x Yamaha Subwoofers on Trial in a local church for demonstration and testing of a new Electronic Church Organ.

    Temporary Over spill sound / Outside sound.

    We can Hire you additional sound equipment, catering for the larger ceremonies where overspill is expected, complete with the reassurance of an engineer on hand to assemble, operate and disassemble for added peace of mind. If you have a Keystone Sound System in your church we can feed directly from the system all sound sources so people outside can hear exactly the same as the people within the church. If you have your own Sound system already we can usually take a feed from this for the exterior sound but may need to inspect you system to make sure there is a suitable connection available.

    Yamaha Powered speakers can provide excellent quality sound reproduction fed only from a line level signal and a mains power point. We use these for the HT400 Hymnal where there is no sound system available or when we need a temporary sound system.
