Allowing another STS's to view via Meetinghouse Webcast while conducting tests

Postby michaelfish » Sat Mar 12, 2011 10:08 am

Because of the recent posts regarding “Meetings and other events that are held in the chapel may not be broadcast over the Internet or by any other means...” I’m questioning an idea I had.

In the past, other stake technology specialists have traveled to see our stake to see our setup and form ideas for their own stakes, and then I had this idea…

Since conducting tests of the system involves using the Meetinghouse Webcast and pointing cameras into the chapel, can anyone think of a problem if I allowed other STS’s (from other stakes) to view the stream while we are testing?

The policy is for “meetings and events” held in the chapel. What if the chapel is empty except for those setting up and conducting tests? I certainly do not want to go against church policy and would like some feedback.

For example, interested STS participants could call in on our telephone bridge (private) with questions. A video camera on a long cable could be used to show the setup configuration, equipment, where wires are hidden, various camera angles, Q/A’s could be discussed through the voice line, etc.

It would give others the opportunity to how our stake sets things up without traveling to our building.

My impression is that you would be alright broadcasting the "training". I have my own thoughts as to why they don't want meetings and other events broadcast and I don't think this falls into the realm of those meetings and other events they are trying to protect from being viewed by the general public. In fact I think your idea is great.

Have you tried finding your answer on the LDS.org Help Center page or the LDSTech wiki?

While I personally don't have a problem with it, it is really up to your stake president to interpret the Handbook. One could argue that anything but a completely empty chapel is "an event".

I've received permission from the Stake President to allow others to view the test stream. Anyone interested in participating can send me a PM and I will communicate with them with the telephone conference numbers and streaming information.

I plan on demonstrating and discussing the following:
[INDENT]·The motorized, retractable camera that drops-down from ceiling and it’s installation
·Quick 30 second setup of the ‘slide-in’ cameras on each side of overflow
·Quick 30 second setup of audio backup through Symetrix TI-101
·Camera mounting options (from ceiling or side)
[font=Symbol]·Multi-camera and mixing capability of the Videonics MX-1
· [/font]Superimposing of hymns over video with the Videonics MX-1 and PowerPoint
·Placement, viewing angles and zoom capabilities of Sony EVI-D70 cameras
·Robotic control of the Sony RM-BR300
·How to purchase quality equipment on a budget
[/INDENT]I’m hoping to do this Friday afternoon MST (3/18) before the training or Saturday after the training at around noon MST (3/19).

I agree and spoke with our Stake President. He has approved my request to allow others to view the test.
