Re: Live Captioning/Transcription

Every deaf person I have known can read and write the language they live in, ASL is just their first language. At this point we are working on activation so it would be a bit overboard to assign missionaries etc. If anyone has seen anything available thru SLC I would be interested to hear about it.

Re: Live Captioning/Transcription

Yes, projection would be nice but then again if you have enough people that you need a projector, you could probably get a live ASL translator. Remember that the deaf speak ASL, not english so a translator is preferred when possible. Since all our buildings here have the hearing assisted transmitter...

Live Captioning/Transcription

My Bishop has asked me to look in to options for live captioning/transcribing our sacrament meeting for deaf members. I grew up in a deaf magnet ward and know that ASL translation is best but he is looking for an alternative as we don't have people in the ward to can translate. I think he was hoping...

Re: Projector mounting

But what does mounting a projector save you? Pointing it and getting it in focus? Adjusting the keystone maybe? These are things most users can do if they can connect a computer or DVD player to a projector. I won't argue getting more projectors, I know most Stakes around here have at least 2. I jus...

Re: Projector mounting

Lets hope that mlh78 is correct and that they are working on something. There was a similar hold on Sling boxes and high speed internet before that started rolling into buildings as well. Having priced the cables etc to install a projector, the cost of the install with all the cables can easily exce...

Re: Is it possible/practical to upload webcasts using mifi?

I would be quite concerned about upload consistency. Think of it as WiFi with huge range that you can't turn off. You would have to be concerned with all the members in the building AND everyone outside the building. Reporters do it for <5 min sound bites that they can re-do. I just can't see 2 hrs ...

Re: Coax (RG6) vs UTP (CAT5e) for Video Signal

Lucily the CCS center conductor is most common in overhead installations where tensile strength is needed. The RG6 Quad I have is solid core. I found the Specs for the Leviton product they sell at Home Depot. Unfortunately it only calls for 10-40 ft runs. Might work for some of you but not for me. I...

Coax (RG6) vs UTP (CAT5e) for Video Signal

I am going to be wiring our camera in coming weeks and am curious about what you have found to be best for transmitting video signal, Coax or UTP? Many tech forums indicate RG6 Quad is poor for NTSC video because it is not designed for the frequency of the signal. They recommend RG59 but that is har...

Re: Balun Recommendations?

I'm curious... Is there a concern about cost for a specific reason? Is FMG charging you for this install? Has FMG at this point told you they won't do it because of cost? Nah, they have just made it clear that all costs associated with webcast setup are the responsibility of the Stake so it comes o...

Re: Balun Recommendations?

I have also considered running control and DC power over a Cat5e/6 cable and running the video over a RG6quad cable. Twice the cables but I should be able to build the Cat5e/6 to power & serial adapters on my own. My main concern would be the voltage drop. According to this http://www.securityid...
