Re: TV monitors on rostrum

I am a relatively new STS - only two stake conferences under my belt. I Zoomed our previous stake conference meeting, and linked my laptop to an Epson projector to project Tabernacle Choir prelude music and linked it's audio to chapel sound via the crab box. So I have some experience. The presiding...

Re: New Reimbursement Function

This seems like a nice addition, but will create problems if used in our stake. Our stake policy is that organization leaders must first approve an expense request. They are responsible for their budgets and should be aware of any expense impacting that budget. We do this through email, since the cu...

Re: More Permanent Setup for Sacrament Meeting Broadcasts

Oh how I wish I could find an IP driven PTZ camera that isn't $1800... We're using 2 of these in our stake center. They support NDI so can be fully operated over a single Cat6 cable (PoE, streaming and IP VISCA control). They seem to be compatible with the PTZOptics tools. We're using the 30x zoom ...

Re: Breakout setting reset

Thanks for posting this. I just took a look and saw that several of our settings were changed, including breakout rooms, co-host and emojis. It may have been someone at Church HQ who made the change, since these settings didn't change on my personal Zoom account. I had to go through all the wards an...

Re: More Permanent Setup for Sacrament Meeting Broadcasts

Here's what we did for our buildings. We fabricated a webcam mount that clamps to the base of the microphone boom. There is a rubber liner to prevent scuffing the boom, and a setscrew to lock the camera boom. Cable is mounted into the pulpit under the mic mount and out the bottom through a small hol...

Re: Zoom Webinar Features for Sacrament Meeting

aside from accessing issues, how are you switching your video source in Zoom to prevent broadcasting the Sacrament portion of the meeting? If we use YouTube to broadcast then using OBS as a broadcast manager / editor makes accomplishing this simple. I do not see an option to run OBS or any other br...

Re: Is Recording Blocked in New Church Zoom Accounts?

I no long see the "record" button beside the other meeting controls. Recording is available. We used it Sunday to record a Zoom youth fireside. You need to enable it in the settings on the Zoom website and look in the "Recording" group for all the options. When you hit the Recor...

Re: How We Do Zoom Sacrament Meetings

Things worked "OK" but the music (capturing from the mic) will cut in and out (Zoom is using AEC which is causing this) What would be a good work around? I have some ideas but I thought I would post this to get feedback 1st. The Zoom phone app has limited configuration options. In the Mee...

Re: Recording Zoom Sacrament/Stake Conference Attendance

Correct me if I’m not understanding this, but I’m guessing that the attendees report is only obtained from the webinar option in Zoom, mentioned in the above post. At the moment we’re not using the webinar option. If it’s available in the other option where do we go to get the report? I was able to...

Re: Recording Zoom Sacrament/Stake Conference Attendance

Once a month I send out an email a survey to all the adult members, in the ward, requesting their attendance numbers per household. I’ve found that at least a third, who participated in the Zoom meeting, don’t respond. I have now resorted to taking screenshots during the meeting, so I can then do a...
