Magewell has added a new section to its website to make it easier for church technical teams and volunteers to learn more about live streaming and the company’s relevant products. Combining fresh content with curated existing material, the compilation features best practices articles, tutorials, case studies, and focused product information to help houses of worship start streaming for the first time or enhance their existing streaming workflows.

“While some churches have been streaming their worship services for many years, the pandemic took streaming to a whole new level of importance,” said Amy Zhou, Sales Director at Magewell. “Even as worshippers return to church sanctuaries, streaming will continue to play a crucial role for followers who do not feel comfortable coming back or are unable to attend in person. Many churches rely almost entirely on volunteers for their video operations who may have little or no previous streaming experience, so we wanted to make it easier for them to find relevant resources on our website.”
