Re: Fast internet upload speed test - but slow Teradek encode rate???

We have seen this problem as well. The Teradek connection throttles down regardless of the available upload speed and settings. We have run the Teradek at 1280x720 for some time but recently it pinches off at 960x640. During a recent stake conference we ran two webcasts simultaneously (English/Spani...

Re: Reliable broadcasting for Stake Conference - how to

The ATEM mini does not have a multi-view screen making a two camera setup sub-optimal for us. The ATEM mini pro has this feature allowing us to frame the preview PTZ camera and then switch it into the program stream. Good little boxes but both lack the easy ability to use the church streaming direct...

Re: Sharing out experience with Virtual Sacrament Meeting Broadcasts

A few notes from using the OBS software for a sacrament broadcast. Basic setup: 2 PTZ cameras from the stake, ATEM mini pro, laptop, small firewall to create a subnet inside the church network for better camera control. Cable service is 6mbps up. The highest resolution allowed is 1280x720 using the ...

Re: amateur radio equipment banned?

We seriously looked at placing an antenna within a building attic but discovered that the florescent lighting fixtures were horrific emitters of RF noise, HF to VHF. The net moved to homes with a temporary VHF antenna available for external use at the building. 73.

Re: Short Throw Projector Suggestions

We have installed an Epson 700U short throw projector in the HC room. It has a 4000 lumen output and is creating a 100+ inch image. The distance from the lens to the screen is less than 24 inches. (really). It takes care to locate the projector but the picture is amazing.

Re: FHC Canon Microfilm Scanner 300 vs Win 7

The FHC has received a new Dell Optiplex 7450 All-in-One running Windows 10 x64. There were some challenges getting the I/F to the Canon 300ii to run. We used the same driver package from www.scsiproshop.com as before. See post of 05Feb2013. There are probably better ways to do but this is the route...

Re: PTZ camera control using IP

We have been using the Sony EVI-D70 camera with a serial control before switching to two Optics 20x SDI cameras. They are controlled via an internal AV network that also controls the webcast box, AV WAP, audio and video mixer. The two camera setup allows for camera movement before switching the live...

Re: Need simple way to configure monitors on the stand

The remote is left with the monitor(s) but we do not expect them to use it. The volume is always turned off as the overhead sound system is driving the room. In the 'low' show mode, whatever the PC is putting out is on the screen and on the monitor. A black slide or no input will cause the monitor i...

Re: Need simple way to configure monitors on the stand

We have chosen to use HDMI for this situation. There are several configuration options. For a ‘low’ show, we use a HDMI 1 to 4 splitter with a small collection of HDMI cables of 35 or 50 feet. This allows the PC or input device to be positioned almost anywhere on the stand. Two monitors (cheap LCD f...

Re: Choir Microphone setup for Webcast

An update on an alternative configuration. To hit the choir 'sweet spot' locations we needed a very tall microphone since the ceiling was not of practical use. Here are photos of a carbon fiber floor standing microphone. It's kind of a poor mans Audix, but taller. It uses an 8 foot 0.301in. diameter...
