Ministry and Media Technologies - Pro Tips

  1. 1. Ministry Media Technologies Jamie Bass, CISSP-ISSEP May 2018
  2. 2. Bottom Line Up Front (BLUF) • This PowerPoint covers multiple technologies that will get ministries streaming video, recording sound, and looking like a pro quickly and economically. • Technology changes rapidly, so there may be better solutions over time. • Use these technology solutions as a starting point. After implementation, write down what you like and don’t like, and upgrade your equipment as funds become available.
  3. 3. Table Of Contents VIDEO • Streaming (Capturing) – Software – Hardware • Audio/Video Presentation – From Lecturer – From Portable Missionary – From House of Worship AUDIO • Fixed • Portable REMOTE DISPLAYS • Lobby Announcement Display • Nursery TV
  4. 4. STREAMING TECHNOLOGIES Capturing video, and getting your video onto YouTube and Facebook
  5. 5. Equipment Costs • SOFTWARE: – $60 for VMIX streaming software (Recommended) • OR – Free – Open Broadcaster Studio – $20 for NewTek NDI smartphone application • Turns smartphone into remote network camera over Wi-Fi • HARDWARE: – $300 to $1500 for a beefy laptop – $400 for each iPhone 7 or above you want to use as a remote camera. You can also use Android phones that have good cameras. – $100 for each USB 3.0 FHD EZCAP 1080p HDMI USB capture device – $200 for each USB 3.0 StarTech USB3HDCAP 1080p HDMI USB capture device – $300 – HDMI Camcorder – $75 – Tripod (for camcorder) – $200 – Apple TV – $35 – Google Chromecast – $150 – Good WiFi Router • YOUR FINAL COST DEPENDS ON WHAT YOU WANT AND HOW YOU SET IT UP.
  6. 6. Hardware – Robust Laptop WHY: Needed to capture and process video at a quick rate, to prevent choppy performance COST: Used from $300-$600, New from $600 to $2,500. I’d recommend buying a used laptop with a plan to upgrade in 2 years. MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS: • Quad Core Intel i7 processor (Desktop processor, not mobile!) • 16GB RAM • Solid State Drive (SSD) • Must have USB 3.0 ports (also known as SS (Super Speed) ports) TYPICAL EXAMPLES: HP EliteBook, Dell Latitude You can use a desktop or laptop, as long as they meet these requirements. Desktops are actually better, but laptops are self-contained (screen, keyboard, etc., and take up less space) and are easier to find used. I would strongly recommend buying a used laptop. *Be cautious of mobile processors, they don’t have enough processing power!
  7. 7. Video Capture Cards WHY: Needed to convert video signals (like HDMI, VGA, DVI, or Composite) to a format the computer can use COST: HDMI Capture Only - $100; HDMI, VGA, DVI, and Composite capture card - $200 MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS: • USB 3.0 compatible • Should be capable of capturing at least 60 frames per second at 1080p TYPICAL EXAMPLES: (See next slide)
  8. 8. FHD EZCAP USB 3.0 HDMI Capture Card • Costs $100. Captures HDMI Only. No drivers necessary, automagically picked up by Windows and Mac and it just works! Notes: This captures audio from the HDMI video source (like a camcorder or presentation computer video output). You probably don’t want to capture ambient room audio from the camera, so use the Behringer UCA222 to pull audio from your sound board.
  9. 9. StarTech USB3HDCAP USB 3.0 HDMI Capture Card COST: $200. Great product. Captures HDMI, DVI, VGA, Composite, SVIDEO, and has RCA Audio Inputs. I use this card to capture audio from our board and an HDMI video input. ***WINDOWS ONLY. Driver is a bit tricky to get working, but is solid once you do!
  10. 10. Behringer UCA222 RCA to USB Audio Interface Get sound from your board into your computer with no buzzing or hissing. COST: $30
  11. 11. Example of Best Solution Note that projection screen is displayed on video stream as a 2nd input
  12. 12. Example of Simple Solution Note that screens in these two venues are fairly large, so they decided that they’d use a wide shot and capture the projector in a single video capture. Sometimes this configuration can make it difficult for your online audience to read the words or participate with live content. You will notice in all the videos shown that the church logo and the church website are embedded in the video stream. This is a very useful feature of VMIX called an “XAML Title”. You can build a ‘layer’ that you can slap on top of any video stream coming out of VMIX. VMIX is awesome!
  13. 13. Professional Video Streaming Solution Here’s an example of this setup, only in 720p: https://youtu.be/6Aovg4aY-RI?t=9m40s
  14. 14. Bringing It All Together – VMIX Software • VMIX is probably the very best software I’ve found out there for streaming. It’s super simple to set up, one-click to stream, and takes 5 minutes to train a newbie. • The $60 version will do everything you need, unless you plan on having more than 4 inputs. – Most won’t use more than 4 inputs unless you use multiple NDI smartphones for remote cameras. • VMIX streams up to 3 different streaming services (Facebook, Youtube, Vimeo, Periscope, Custom RTMP servers, and dozens of other platforms), at up to 1080p resolution. • If you want, VMIX can also record MP4 videos and .WAV files on your hard drive (while you’re also streaming!). Makes it SUPER easy to burn DVDs and CDs.
  15. 15. Use a Gimbal, Tripod, and Smartphone to make a 1080p high-def remote camera Gimbals are really great at turning shaky video into smooth and stable video. A typical $100 SmoothQ gimbal mounted on a tripod can make smartphone video look like a pro. It makes it easy to capture smooth video as you follow a speaker that constantly walks back and forth across the stage. Check out Gimbal video vs. Non-Gimbal video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XQxysYXFicY You can download the app below (NewTek NDI) from the Apple App Store for $20, and it will turn your smartphone into a 1080p remote camera that transmits audio and video over WiFi to the VMIX computer. NOTE: Make sure you have a robust WiFi router, and at least an iPhone 7. This app is also in the Google Play store and can be used with an android phone too!
  16. 16. Presentation Solutions How to get song lyrics, videos, PowerPoints, animated graphics, and anything you want on the big screen!
  17. 17. Presentation Software • There are three main contenders, MediaShout, ProPresenter, and EasyWorship – They’re all good, it’s like asking the Ford, Chevy, or Dodge question – Everybody’s got an opinion…. • My personal preference is MediaShout on Windows. I’ve used ProPresenter on a Mac too, and it’s OK (but not as versatile in my opinion). • You need to have TWO video outputs for your video presentation software. One output should go to your monitor, and another should go to your projector.
  18. 18. Presentation Hardware Recommend getting a desktop with at least • 16GB of RAM, • A Solid State Drive (SSD), and • An Intel i7 quad core processor. • You also need a beefy video card (at least a 2GB card, but more VRAM the better!) with – (Preferred) a DVI, VGA, and HDMI outputs, or – At least two DVI outputs (so you can use adapters).
  19. 19. This Is The Simplest Way To Do Projection In Your Church
  20. 20. The Very Best Way To Set Up Your Sanctuary • The speaker / presenter can broadcast (using a tablet, phone, or laptop) through the sanctuary WiFi network to either an Apple TV or Google Chromecast. – They can use PowerPoint, Keynote, YouTube, etc. or do screen sharing… whatever they want • The media person simply has to do is switch the input to what the speaker / presenter is using, and whatever they want will show up on the projector and play through the sound system. Check out the technical setup on the next slide…
  21. 21. If you already have a projector in place that has VGA, you can still use it by using an adapter
  22. 22. $200 $35 $150 2500+ Lumen WXGA Projector - $250 Used Recommend Quartet Brand – 60” for travelers
  23. 23. Audio Solutions
  24. 24. General Sound System Info Sound system design really depends on the venue, budget, and specific needs of the organization. • New sound systems are all digital. Most can be controlled with a tablet or phone. – You can save ‘profiles’ so that if things get messed up, you can bring it right back to perfect. Makes it easy to train new people. – Digital sound systems have effects like Reverb and Delay built in. Makes singers and instruments sound amazing. – They also have digital gates, equalizers, and compressors built in too. They help shape and clean your sound, individually on each channel. • Behringer (and several other companies) make great in-ear monitor systems that will completely eliminate the need for on-stage monitors. On stage monitors are the #1 cause of feedback in a sound system.
  25. 25. Fixed Installations • Most churches need less than 24 inputs. Most can get by with less than 16 if they don’t have all of their drums mic’d. • Typical components: – Sound Board / Input Device – Snake (carries signals from the stage to the back) – Amplifiers, speakers, stage monitors – Instruments and microphones
  26. 26. Example Of A Typical Fixed Installation
  27. 27. Another Fixed Install Example
  28. 28. How to use AUX for Stage Monitors
  29. 29. Full Instrument Mics Set individual gains, then You should assign each group of these channels to a subgroup so you can turn them all up or all down at the same time.
  30. 30. Stage Monitors • These guys have way to many! If you can, stay away from Stage monitors (stage speakers that musicians use to hear themselves playing), They tend to generate a lot of feedback, are hard to troubleshoot, and are difficult to get set up to the musician’s liking. • They are expensive, but you should really try to use in- ear headphone monitoring systems, where each musician can control their own mix. • There are many in-ear monitoring systems out there, like the Behringer P16M, Alesis, Roland, etc.
  31. 31. Example of a Behringer Analog Board with the Behringer P16M In-Ear stage monitor system.
  32. 32. Portable Sound The new trend is total digital with no sound board or snake at all. • Like The Behringer X18, Soundcraft UI24R, PreSonus, Mackie, or Yamaha digital mixers. • They sit on the stage, so there’s no need for a snake to run wires to the back. • You should use powered speakers for mains and monitors. Signal going to everything should use low level mic cables. – QSC, Mackie, and JBL make great powered speakers. Be sure to put them on a tripod stand – They sound best at ear-level! • Digital Mixers are super simple to set up and use, and are controlled wirelessly by a tablet or phone. These mixers have all the EQs and filters built in, so you don’t need extra effects boxes to get pro sound. • Typical Components: Digital mixer, Powered main speakers, In-Ear monitoring system (or powered stage monitors). • Cost – Depends – Usually under $1,000.
  33. 33. Digital Mixers
  34. 34. Powered Speakers • Amplifier is built in, plugs into the wall. • Audio signal is low power, comes from the board through a mic cable
  35. 35. Behringer X18 Example Hookup Gain, Effects, Levels, and all functions controlled wirelessly through a web interface (from a tablet, phone, or laptop). This box sits on stage
  36. 36. USING A GOOGLE CHROMECAST TO TURN ANY TV WITH HDMI INTO AN ANNOUNCEMENT DISPLAY
  37. 37. How do you make an Announcement TV for your Lobby? Simple – Buy a $35 Google Chromecast and a $300 TV Here are the steps: 1. Create a Google account. Go into Google Photos and set up an Album. 2. Create a PowerPoint in 1080 resolution (1920x1080 pixels), and save it normally with all the announcements you want. Then, click FILESave As, and select JPEG from the dropdown list. Export every slide as a JPEG. Finally, upload them to your Google Photos Album you created earlier. 3. Set up Google Chromecast normally on your WiFi network. Log in with your Google Account. Adjust settings to your preferences. 4. Set up your Chromecast to do a slideshow of your pictures from Google Photos (it’s an easy setting inside the Chromecast device settings). Now, every time the TV is turned on, it will come up with the current time, the current temperature, and will scroll through your PowerPoint JPEG slides. ***NOTE: Make sure this is a WiFi network only the sound guys have access to…. You wouldn’t want somebody streaming nasty content in your lobby!
  38. 38. USING A GOOGLE CHROMECAST TO TURN ANY TV INTO A REMOTE DISPLAY FOR YOUR SERVICES (LIKE IN YOUR NURSERY!)
  39. 39. Nursery and Remote Displays No wires, Just WiFi and a Google Chromecast! • One of the biggest headaches is running video wires from the sound booth to places where you’d want announcement TVs or remote displays. Many nurseries aren’t used because moms want to see the service, but don’t have a way to watch. • As long as you are streaming your services using Youtube Live, you can use a Google Chromecast to stream to any TV • SCENARIO: Worship starts, the sound guys start live streaming to Youtube. Next, the sound guys pull up Youtube on their phone to see if the service is streaming properly. They touch the Chromecast button, and send the livestream to the Nursery TV. Mom takes the baby to the nursery, and there’s a 55” flat screen attached to the wall with high definition sound and video of your service in the next room. Mom has the remote control to adjust volume and is able to participate with everyone else!
  40. 40. Nursery and Remote Displays Step 1: Stream to Youtube Step 2: Step 3: Your services show up on the Nursery TV!
  41. 41. Conclusion • Sorry for the low quality pictures and diagrams, I’m a tech, not an artist ;) • These are starting points that allow churches or ministries to get high quality results at very low initial costs. There are far more professional solutions out there, so you should pursue those later when you learn what you like and dislike. • Be sure to set your stuff up securely. Don’t put devices on a WiFi network that everybody can get to, or you might see SpongeBob on your lobby display! • Be sure to get really good WiFi equipment and computers. Don’t blame the sound/video guy if you get choppy video or audio from going cheap! • By the way, I probably won’t be able to help you with troubleshooting – I run a full time commercial business and two ministries! I’ll be doing a series of Youtube Videos later to help explain all the details. They’ll also be great tools to help you train new sound/video guys too. Stay tuned! • I hope this helps you bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all the world! I bless you in the name of Jesus Christ, our risen Lord and Savior!
