Here, If you do not have VGA, USB, or HDMI out, you need to provide your own cable from your device. We can usually connect whatever is at the end of your cable into our system, but we do not keep cables that connect to devices. Everyone has a different cell phone/tablet/whatever device.

Of course, if we were ever to receive specific information from a visiting GA, we could always run out to the store on Saturday morning and get something, I suppose.

Sadly, I can not help here. communications to the Stake President reside squarely in the ecclesiastical channel.

In actual practice, we find that most general authorities show up and review technological capabilities/desires during the initial meeting with the stake presidency. Based on our normal schedule, that gives us about an hour to transfer/download any specific videos or AV presentations.

And without exception, all have said they knew how to work a chalk and eraser board, if needed. And all who have been outside of the country will regale us with stories of teaching entirely by the Spirit, with nothing to get in the way.

To address the topic, we do not use an audio splitter for the podium. Whatever goes through the chapel sound system, be it pulpit mike, wireless or other handheld mike, choir mikes plugged into the building sound system, or organ, also goes out on the Webcast. Devices plug into the system through a crab box or, in newer setups, through inputs at the side of the pulpit.

But there is a second mechanism, the mailing list to clerks. Knowledge of this Kit is pretty important and should be disseminated.... Not to stake presidency, but to the clerks and STS.
