Re: A plea for a dedicated streaming receiver

In our stake we purchased Lenovo Chromeboxes for each receiving site about two years ago. We paid between $100 and $120 each. This allowed us to standardize the training and the connections. It eliminated a lot of problems at the receive sites. We do have some locations that have audio differences w...

Re: Correct Video Settings for Webcasting

Thanks CalS201: Your response got me to dig a little deeper. I found that the switch has a DVI-D input. I am going to use an HDMI to DVI-D cable and input the Sony HDX-240CX camera into the switch. Then set the switch to upscale to 720p for the switch output. I can then take the switch output (after...

Re: Correct Video Settings for Webcasting

Thanks for the suggestions. The camera is mounted to the ceiling so I don't want to take it down. I should be able to plug a composite video cable in the back of it to do some testing though. I think our chapel has pretty good lighting. We have a building only 2 years old and they have added four la...

Correct Video Settings for Webcasting

Brethren: I have received a lot of valuable advice through this forum, so I thought I would return to the well again. My webcasting setup is pretty simple. Sony DVI-70 PTZ camera: connected to the Extron IN1508 video switcher/scaler; video from the output port on the rack to an Atlona HD-AT-120 conv...

Re: A plea for a dedicated streaming receiver

We have used the chromebox for Church broadcasts and it has worked well. I have one location that does not have satellite and they use the internet/chromebox for all web streaming of Church broadcasts. I have another that has such poor satellite service they prefer using the internet/chromebox as pr...

Re: A plea for a dedicated streaming receiver

I have not delved into the resolution possibilities. We do connect them up to projectors that have HDMI input. Since we have a 720p camera and setup a "medium" stream with the encoder, I cannot say how the Lenova handles higher resolutions. They work fine for receiving our Stake conference...

Re: A plea for a dedicated streaming receiver

Our Stake has purchased Lenova Chromeboxes. These run the Chrome operating system and chrome browser. We have had very good luck with them. Having a standard receive platform makes training easier and simplifies hook-up. The price for the Lenova chromeboxes at the time we purchased them last summer ...

Re: Crab Box, Time for a redesign-overhaul. Audio volume issues

I have been salvaging the grey or black case of the crab box and putting my replacement inside....retaining the old cables if they check good.

Re: Crab Box, Time for a redesign-overhaul. Audio volume issues

Thanks for posting a response. I ended up buying the following which has an XLR interface and works really well as a crab box replacement. It does not have a telephone interface.
