St. Nicholas of Tolentino, Bristol - Live Streaming Supply, Installation & Training
During the Covid 19 lockdown St. Nicholas of Tolentino in Bristol had been embracing live streaming to reach their parishioners.
Having built up a good online following they realised they wanted to continue this vital service but to a higher quality. They approached StreamWorks for a solution.
We would normally suggest PTZ cameras (Pan, Tilt Zoom) which allow the operator to remotely control the camera along with a range of default shots but due to lockdown the budget was understandably tight so we supplied two fixed position Canon camcorders. The Church already had a sufficient sound system which we utilised. We supplied a removable Vision MIxer and Monitor and worked with a local IT company to upgrade their internet connection.
Our installers arrived first thing to start on the cabling.
Due to the height of the church a tower was needed in order to run the cables safely. Lines were run from the audio mixer to the Vision Mixer and high quality video cable installed in the around the roof.
Our team are used to working in churches and are fully compliant with all the latest installation legislation.
The Vision Mixer we supplied is very simple to use with on/off buttons for both streaming and recording.
Our live streaming trainers met with seven of the church to go through how all the equipment worked and explain the streaming process. A step by step help guide was also supplied.
The church are now able to broadcast directly to their website using two high quality cameras and professional audio.
They can offer the streaming service to other organisations using the church as well as stream funerals and weddings.
The installation of the cameras and the equipment was very smooth with Streamwork's professional team and their training session after the installation was easy to follow for those operating the equipment.
We would really recommend Streamworks to any novices, like us, who want to do live streaming and have no idea where to begin.
St Nicholas of Tolentino Catholic Church - Easton, Bristol.
When the church was forced to close due to the Covid pandemic the only way that we could share Mass for our parishioners, and those further afield, was via live streaming. We were not sure how to go about this and searched online for someone to help.
Fortuitously, we came across Streamworks. They made the process of setting up the live streaming very easy for us offering suggestions on the cameras to use.
