At my local church, the new Vicar had his first service and I thought it would be a good plan to try and live stream to expand my knowledge in live streaming and mixing for broadcast, but also to reach a bigger audience and let people who might not usually attend or people who cannot attend be part of the service.
I spent the Saturday before the event rigging cameras, running cable and testing that everything was working. I had 2 cameras at the back of the room, one that was operated to get a tight shot on the person on the stage and another for a semi medium/ wide shot of the stage. I then had another camera mounted up high that was focused so you could see the band in the corner, the stage and some of the congregation as a good establishing shot. I also managed to get a feed from the laptop that they were using to feed the inhouse projector so I could do picture in picture with any slides and with the lyrics.
With Audio I had my Behringer x32 linked via AES50 to the churches inhouse X32 with there console as the master so they still had full gain control I was just receiving all the same feeds. This worked for mostly all the inputs apart from the headset mic for some of the songs that were distorted with the trim on my console all the way down, but unfortunately, I did not have time to test this with the same person who was wearing the mic beforehand. But apart from that, it was all good.
Thanks to inline (James Boyd) for providing his video equipment and for his time.
Unfortunately I didn’t manage to get any photos of inside the auditorium, but here’s a link to the live stream:
