Meetinghouse Webcast, as described on LDSTech, makes it possible to broadcast a one-way audio and video feed from one building to multiple buildings.
In a world where travel is expensive and time is precious, Meetinghouse Webcast can help reduce travel time and increase the number of people who can attend meetings. It can be used for any appropriate meeting, such as stake and regional conferences, firesides, and training sessions.
To qualify for Meetinghouse Webcast you must have the following:
- An official notice from the Office of the Presiding Bishopric authorizing Meetinghouse Webcast
- A qualified stake technology specialist
- A meetinghouse Internet location that has the ability to send or receive a quality webcast
Use the table below as a guideline to determine the webcast quality based on bandwidth.
| Webcast Quality || Sending Bandwidth || Receiving Bandwidth || Webcast Speeds |
| Good || 400K upload || 300K download || 200K (low) |
| Better || 500K upload || 375K download || 250K (medium) |
| Best || 600K upload || 450K download || 300K (high) |
| Rule for calculation || 2 X webcast speed || 1.5 X webcast speed || 150K to 750K |
Meetinghouse Webcast has several essential components, including Meetinghouse Webcast Communicator, Meetinghouse Webcast Receiver (a computer can also be used), a high-quality camera, a tripod, the appropriate cables and cords, and possibly gaffer tape if you have cables crossing walkways.
