Video Mixer selection

I'm looking for suggestions and input on selecting a reasonable video mixer to use with our building to building broadcast of stake conference. We use multiple cameras. Last conference we just used a simple video switcher (AKA a "glitcher switcher"). It worked, but I would like to move to ...

We'd like for members to be able to meet here for General Conference and hear the broadcast in their own tongue (Hmong, Spanish, etc.) if possible. However, the General Conference stream requires the "Move plugin" and that site is blocked by the firewall. Just a thought: Have you consider...

Velcro is simple, cheap and effective

I used $1.99 worth of commercial style heavy duty velcro from the local home store. Use scissors to cut 2 each 3" x 3/4" strips of the self-adhesive velcro. Attach the strips on the back where it won't block anything important (labels, etc), and stick it on the wall. It's held fine without...

The filters on both PIX and ASA firewall devices use Websense, so I don't think it is a cost option. Rather, it is a conscious decision to have different filtering options. See this post to see another request for what you asked. Then this post gives an indication that the Church product managers m...

As I understand it there are 2 fundamental reasons for the church firewall: "The firewall will provide required network security and Web content filtering for meetinghouse users." (from "Meetinghouse Internet Implementation Plan 3"). Certainly no filtering is foolproof, but if th...

Phone Line Audio Backup Question

We are preparing for a stake conference "simulcast" to a second building in 3 weeks. This is our first attempt. I've really appreciated all the posts here and we have used many of the ideas over the past 3 months as we have implemented this. We are using a Slingbox to stream the video. Fro...

Wired vs. Wireless

The one disadvantage of wired is flexibility. The ability to use broadband in the classroom or in meetings for various things. I think it would be nice to show the LUWS calendar in a meeting. Members would bring their own laptops, but they need a connection. A quick cheap fix for the occasional bro...

Desktop 5.5 not supported on some newer Dell machines

Desktop 5.5 does not support some of the newer Dell machines we have (it fails to install indicating the machine is not supported). Support indicated that there will not be a version released to support these new machines (I don't have the Dell model number with me right now). They just said to make...

Connecting Stake/Ward Clerk Computers to existing CCN networks

Look for a brief (four sentence) letter dated Feb 11, 2008 from the Presiding Bishopric regarding connecting stake and ward computers to existing CCN networks. It is addressed broadly to Stake/Ward leaders/Facilities Managers. Any costs associated with connecting to these existing CCN connections ar...

Modem speed doubled with improved building wiring

We have 3 wards and a stake computer all connected to the same phone line for dial-up MLS connection. The wiring was of various ages - most likely up to 40 years old. When the phone system in the building was replaced with a new phone system last month, all of the phone wiring was replaced with Cat5...
