Re: Best browser for webcast viewing?

The warning message only says you should click the "Gear" icon and manually set a higher receive bitrate higher "IF" the video player gets stuck at a low (or audio only) bitrate. We used Chrome for stake conference on five PCs this month with no problem.

HD Video Distribution in New Meetinghouses

I remember reading several forum posts asking what the Church is doing to distribute HD video in new meetinghouses. I found some info here http://aec.ldschurch.org/aec/ on the "What's New" link. If you drill down you find the answer on the last page of this PDF file http://aec.ldschurch.or...

Receive Tests / CPU Usage / Firefox vs Chrome

Recently performed a "receive only" test and compared CPU usage using Firefox and Chrome browsers on a Dell Optiplex 580/Windows10/Dualcore AMD@3.0Ghz. Results indicate CHROME requires much lower CPU power than FIREFOX. This could be useful information if your computer is max'ing out on CP...

Re: Correct Video Settings for Webcasting

Rich,

If your Video Switcher supports DVI-D but not HDMI, then it may also be limited to maximum of 1024X768 resolution. Your camcorder can only output 1280x720 and 1920x1080. It might be worth checking your Switcher's specs. What model do you have?

Re: Correct Video Settings for Webcasting

If you use the RCA video output adapter of the HD camcorder you get 16:9 480i/p (720X480) video. Optimal settings would be the same as for your EVI-D70 camera and the quality would be similar. If you use the HDMI output of the HD camcorder you get 16:9 720P or 1080i/p (1280X720 or 1920X1080) video. ...

Re: Correct Video Settings for Webcasting

I can suggest three things that affect the clarity of your picture. 1. The "medium" quality setting (700kbps) of the VidiU cannot encode the 720P signal and give a clean crisp result if there is any movement or noise in the picture. "Medium" quality setting is OK for a 480i or 48...

Re: Audio Splitter for podium

Most chapels have multiple mic input jacks. Could you just connect the wireless mic receiver to one of them and leave the ipad connected where it is presently?

Re: What equipment is "Authorized"

In 2015 FM was authorized to pay for the Teradek VidiU encoder. Section 8 of the Meetinghouse Technology Policy https://www.lds.org/help/support/meetin ... y?lang=eng authorizes Stake Presidents to use local unit funds for all additional webcast equipment not provided by FM.

Journey from SD to HD Webcasting

Back in the dark ages when webcasting began, we had one EVI-D70 camera. We quickly learned it was difficult to produce a pleasing stake conference with all the herky-jerky . camera movements. We got a lot of comments! So we added a video mixer and used a member’s camcorder as a second camera. Things...
