Living As One: Broadcasting to Campuses
When live video streaming first became a thing, innovative church techs adopted the technology and tried to use it to stream between campuses over the public internet. Problem was, the internet wasn't designed to provide perfect video quality streaming in real-time, and so their audiences experienced distracting video artifacts, dropouts, and buffering wheels. This resulted in many of the early innovators abandoning public internet streaming and reverting to less efficient methods such as on-demand file-based video delivery, or significantly more expensive and complicated options such as satellite video or streaming over private networks. 

Join this session to learn how, using next-generation streaming technologies, the live video quality and reliability problem has been solved, and how you can easily deploy that streaming technology across multiple locations regardless of geographical distance and quality of network access. You'll hear about how leading churches such as NewSpring, Elevation, Life Church, and Northwoods are saving thousands of dollars per month using this technology, and how it's changing their strategy from "where can we go" to "where do we need to go" -- because they now have the technology to go wherever.

Living As One, Broadcasting Online
Churches all over the world such as Hillsong, Life Church, and Elevation are leveraging live video to expand their ministry to reach online audiences. And it's not just the huge churches, either. In fact, according to a 2018 study by the Leadership Network, nearly a quarter of churches with total in-person attendance of 2,000 or less live stream their services, and that number is growing. What's common to all of these churches, though, is a growing awareness that the viewing experience of the end-user can be significantly impacted by the technology which is used for streaming over the public internet, so choosing the right technology to reach online audiences is key for effectiveness and engagement. 

Join this workshop to learn about the technical differences between the various methods for streaming online, and what those difference mean, practically, for your audience. When you walk away, you should understand the ins and outs of how your church can easily reach online audiences with live video through your website, social media platforms such as YouTube and Facebook, and TV boxes like Roku and AppleTV.
