This setup is quite simple. Just turn on or off the encoder is all that is needed by anyone on the stand. All else is automated.
I webcast 12 of 13 wards on Sunday with no technical issues on the webcasting side of things. I do admit that I had specialists
configure each encoder before each session, however, they will no longer be required to configure with this firmware.
Benefits of this setup:
- Low cost - No expensive web camera or computers
Stationary - Podium can move up and down
No fuss - Power on/off to start and stop the webcast
Simple configuration using the Church provided Meetinghouse Webcast system
Easy to train and delegate
Open source, so we can improve this system together!
Cost: $205.00 MSRP per building
