We were contacted at the beginning of May 2021 by Eaglesham Parish Church to provide a quote for the installation of a new live streaming system.
Following a consultation session with them on site to get a better picture of their existing system and what they were looking for in terms of live streaming, we worked closely with them to design a simple and easy to use, yet powerful live streaming system. We were given the go ahead to install at the beginning of August 2021 and Eaglesham Live streamed its first service on Sunday the 29th of August 2021.
For the Primary Camera, we installed a High quality PTZ Camera on the center of the underside of the balcony in order to give a clear view of the chancel, pulpit and a large part of the front of the congregation. We then integrated an existing camera already mounted on the ceiling of the sanctuary to maintain the view of their Organ and Choir which is located on the balcony at the back of the sanctuary.
For control, we installed a Black Magic ATEM Mini Extreme. This powerful unit handles mixing the video streams for the cameras and a laptop into a single feed that is broadcast live over the web to Youtube and also fed to their internal screens and projector. It can also record the stream to a portable hard drive to be uploaded separately later to provide protection against network outages.
