Live Church Production: Stream to the World with Tools that Fit in Your Pocket

April 12, 2017 by Chuck Baker

“NewTek opens a whole new world in the way we approach church-based media production with NDI®,” says Jimmy Goucher, in his Writeswitch blog. “The people over at NewTek knocked the ball out of the park with their new idea.”

What has Goucher excited is that NewTek NDI can send pristine video over the network. This includes WiFi, when the proper bandwidth is available. On top of that, there is a free application, NDI Camera, that turns any Android or iOS device into a wireless video camera. For house-of-worship video production that means:

  • Less reliance on big clunky cameras, tripods, cables, and gaffers tape
  • Using a smartphone camera during worship for angles that were once unthinkable
  • Use a cell phone or tablet to send live video right to your IMAG screen
  • Include or project media from a speaker’s phone or device
  • Move anywhere with complete freedom
  • Be able to instantly react to include the spontaneous and unexpected KeyQuote_Goucher_001

The change was also big in labor-savings: “NDI takes 95% of the work out of setting up and reduced setup time from 1 hour down to about 5 minutes!” Goucher sees major new freedom and creativity in adopting this new approach to video production, and says to other church video producers, “I urge you to check [NDI] out for yourself.”
