Re: YouTube is out

I notice that this issue recurs about every year. To reiterate several previous posts, we are using Sunday Streams and have been doing so for the last 3 years. In that time we've enjoyed 1080P webcasts with no outages or even stutters. The one anomaly we thought was due to Sunday Streams was actuall...

Re: D80 Camera Discontinued

That looks like a good option. It uses the same sensor as the Dahua we have. This is fairly common practice; we see the new sensors in the Dahua and they show up in others at a later time. I don't have any experience with Amcrest but they are well known domestically. We purchased through a security ...

Re: D80 Camera Discontinued

That's the best one we've found so far. I'd be interested in what joystick controller you plan to use and some more details about how well it works out. We've just been using the web interface on the camera for scene control. Just a note: you do need either a switch or POE injector that can do POE+ ...

Re: Reliable broadcasting for Stake Conference - how to

Your white paper should not include the cost of the vidiu since that is now provided by FM - There is no cost to the Stake for it.... that might just be old from the paper. I've never had an issue with stake conference webcasting, the old system, the new system. I just don't get all the fuss. We we...

Re: D80 Camera Discontinued

Wow, these are extremely expensive solutions. I've not been active in the forum for a while, but the fact that we're still considering cameras costing over $2k is shocking. Plus, even if you've already got an SD camera it is seriously time for an upgrade. We've been using two Dahua IP cameras, whic...

Re: A plea for a dedicated streaming receiver

You might be interested that the latest church release (beta) does have the ability to adjust the 'what you label as' Latency to a smaller number (adjustable) I can't guarantee it will be in the full production release but it was in the beta. Because our stake is so large, we've been asked to not o...

Re: A plea for a dedicated streaming receiver

In our stake we purchased Lenovo Chromeboxes for each receiving site about two years ago. We paid between $100 and $120 each. This allowed us to standardize the training and the connections. . Chromeboxes are indeed credible systems for the receive end and much better than a laptop. They do enable ...

Re: Hardware for laptop to support webcasts

We have Roku 2 units. But 3 and Ultra, etc. have hardwire options. Looking at the Roku site, it looks like only their Ultra has a hardwired connection at this point, but $79 is a lot better than a laptop cost and unreliability. Apple TV works as well, plus some lesser known brands. I have not done a...

Re: Reliable broadcasting for Stake Conference - how to

I would not try to do live video reinforcement with an IP camera just because of the 300msec latency. But, routing this to a satellite room in the same stake center with that delay is very reasonable, but you have to use the signal from the HDMI stream and not the building system. We've been doing t...

Re: A plea for a dedicated streaming receiver

Since we have not had any issues with our webcast system, I've not been back on this forum in quite a while. However, let me just touch this topic again and report the results of our experiment over the last couple of years. Since the church system does not support any dedicated video box (Roku, App...
