Good morning. I am the associate pastor at our church, and my lead pastor has asked me to get a handle on our media ministry, including our live stream. I have a background in IT, so I am at least somewhat technically literate.
We currently use Ustream ($100/month plan) and have had numerous issues lately. I know part of our issue is we need a better camera, which we are working on. The current setup was installed by someone no longer with us and I have been trying get familiar with what our setup and how to improve what we are doing. My lead pastor asked me to check into Church Online. He was under the impression that this was a streaming service that could replace Ustream, but with more features and for free. From doing some reading, it seems that we still need a streaming service to use Church Online. So what exactly is Church Online, if it isn't a streaming service? Does it just add features to our live stream? Will it work with Ustream? Should I use something other than Ustream?
Any help is appreciated.
