Video Post-Production and Delivery: Part Three

by John Chevalier and Bryan Cole We end our series on video post-production and delivery, talking about storage and delivery of your content.

Have a Plan: The biggest challenge I see with churches embarking on a video ministry for the first time, is that they don’t have a process as all.

Bright Idea: Using Laser Projectors to Enhance Houses of Worship

by Rich McPherson A house of worship's purpose is to bring people together to share a positive message about faith, and when a facility is able to serve its members more effectively using technology, it translates to higher attendance and positive word-of-mouth - keeping current members coming back and encouraging new ones to join. To meet these goals, many houses of worship constantly reevaluate their technology lineup to ensure it successfully engages the community and benefits the staff, and as new offerings hit the market, it's important to understand the advantages of breaking away from the status quo.
