New Company is Dedicated to Making Streaming Live Video Easy and Affordable

In Industry Newsby admin

Contrary to popular belief, streaming live video isn’t terribly difficult- provided you have the right tools and guidance. Servicing the central United States, Stream Dudes was created to provide customers with the advice and tools they need to easily produce and stream high quality video. Drawing from their personal live production and industry sales experiences, the founders of Stream Dudes created a company with an emphasis on making webcasting as easy as possible.

Having worked across multiple verticals, the Stream Dudes team realizes that there is a lot of confusion over what people really need to stream and how to reach their target audience. More than providing just equipment, Stream Dudes provides guidance and consultation designed to ensure that their customers have a successful broadcast.
This commitment to helping people make streaming easier is not only reflected in the laid-back, yet professional attitude of the company, but it is also reflected in the very products they sell. COO & Product Manager, John Basile said “We are very proud of the products and solutions we offer our customers. It was a difficult task picking the ‘right’ mix of equipment, but drawing from my experiences as a live producer and educator, we ultimately chose brands that lent themselves to being user-friendly in a live production environment, reliable and innovative in design.”

1962660783954734965226264537767n February 19th from 4:30-close

 February 20th from 8AM – 6PM

The Ministry & Technology Expo is an outstanding opportunity for Pastors, Church technical staff, and volunteers to learn about the latest developments in worship AV and to gain a close look at a wide variety of products optimized for the church market.

Audio, video, and lighting are rapidly becoming an integral part of the contemporary worship experience. A well-designed AV system is a tremendous tool that, by bringing music, images, lyrics, plus other visuals and lighting, serves as a dramatic support mechanism for helping to make services more relevant to congregations of all ages.

Unfortunately, there is limited information and opportunity for churches to gain the know-how necessary to make informed decisions about investing in AV equipment—and this is precisely what the Ministry & Technology Expo is all about.
