Video Quality of Various Cameras

Over the years, we progressed from using one D70 camera, to several used D30 cameras, finally to several used Canon HD camcorders(with IR remote control).

Re: Coax converter box

You could re-purpose the camera input jack in the overflow area and use it as a video output jack for your projector. Just locate the other end of the camera cable inside the AV cabinet and connect it to the VDA (video distribution amp) which is also in the cabinet.

Re: Hiding the sleeping choir members

For our last stake conference we lowered the cameras (just 53" above the floor) and placed the left & right cameras on the back pews, and the center camera 4 rows from the front. No more distractions behind the speaker !

What equipment do you use for webcasting?

With the recent move by HQ to H.264 encoding we all have to change some of our webcasting equipment. I thought it might be helpful if we polled everyone to see what we are each "presently" doing, and what we plan to change for the "future". Feel free to add your configuration/pla...

Aspect Ratio Issues: EVI-D70 to VidiU

Our EVI-D70 cameras output video in 4:3 aspect ratio. The MonoPrice SD to HDMI Converter(Church HQ recommended) stretchs the video to 16:9 and converts it to HDMI for the VidiU Encoder. When the webcast video is viewed at a remote bldg via a laptop & projector, will everyone appear short and wid...

Re: Using VidiU with older technology Sony EVI-D70

With the recent announcement by the Presiding Bishopric that the VidiU Encoder is available FREE to all interested stakes, the transition is painless. Simply purchase the $50 "Composite to HDMI Converter" from the Church's store (or MonoPrice) and the VidiU will work with any stake's EVI-D...
