After just two months of live streaming, the Olivet United Methodist Church in Coatesville, Pennsylvania, has been able to connect with church members from all around the world, including some who have moved away, some who were temporarily home-bound, and other who were on vacation. The new live streaming system was in place just before Christmas in 2018. In that time, the church media team has been able to live stream a candlelight service, the 2018 Christmas service, and a special baptism. The live streaming system has connected house bound parishioners like Tori Parker who commented “Glad I can be here, even from my couch as I recover from surgery.”
The system has also connected members of the church who have moved away from the area, like Agnes Miner who says “What a blessing to happen (though I’m not convinced things just “happen”) to check my Facebook feed just a few minutes before 10 this morning and discover the first live feed of your service! And then to discover Pastor Spiegelhalder was participating, and the service included the baptism of his great-granddaughter! It’s been 40 years since our family lived in Coatesville and were active at Olivet. What a joy to participate in the service remotely!” It’s comments like these that remind us why we live stream church services.
In the included video above, you will get the chance to see a behind the scenes look at the new church video production system installed in the Olivet United Methodist Church. This system includes two PTZOptics cameras, the PTZOptics Producer Kit and a whole lot more!
New hardware-and-app solution turns a phone and external video source into a complete production platform, making it easier than ever before to create high-quality live content
Video content creators ranging from professionals to social media enthusiasts can soon have a better way to share their vision with their audience through high-quality live productions. Streaming solutions startup StreamGear Inc. will come out of stealth mode at tomorrow’s StreamGeeks Summit conference in New York City by launching VidiMo, a new hardware-and-app combination that turns a smartphone and external video source into a full-fledged, virtual video production and transmission facility.
Providing an easier way to create and share engaging live video content, the VidiMo system enables a single person with a smartphone and a video camera to produce multi-source, television-style shows that can be streamed live, recorded or both. While smartphone camera quality has improved over the years, it’s still no match for the rich creative functionality – such as optical zoom, tactile focus, iris control and depth of field – of a dedicated video or DSLR camera. VidiMo lets users have the best of both worlds, bringing an HDMI video source into their smartphone and combining it with the phone’s camera and other sources.

New Models Easily Integrate Contact Closure-Driven Switch Sets With an RJ-45 Connection, Eliminates Soldering Tasks
LynTec, a leading manufacturer of innovative electrical power control solutions for professional audio, video, and lighting systems, announced the addition of RJ-45-connections to switch sets. The SS-2LRP locking rack plate switch set, SS-2DPL brushed aluminum decora insert, and SS-2PL single-gang stainless-steel wall plate no longer require the task of soldering wire connections for contact closure-driven switch sets with a simple RJ-45 connection.
“Soldering is a dying art due to increased use of RJ-45 connectors and corresponding cables,” said Mark Bishop, president of LynTec. “By not requiring the connections to be soldered, our new switch sets not only reduce installation costs with less labor and required wire involved but also simplify post-installation maintenance and troubleshooting, since no soldering has to be redone. This addition to our accessories keeps pace with the increasing use of RJ-45 connectors on projects and aligns with our ongoing commitment to deliver power control options that streamline the installation and user experience.”
VITEC, a worldwide leader in advanced video encoding and streaming solutions, today announced its MGW Ace Encoder and Decoder were successfully installed at Life Church and its four satellite campuses in Memphis, Tenn.

It’s been more than a year, and we have not had a single issue. That’s a testament of VITEC’s absolutely flawless technology.”
Life Church’s years long search for a streaming solution that would easily and reliably record a high-quality broadcast video from the main location and stream it live to multiple satellite locations simultaneously without errors and with delayed playback ended with VITEC.
