Padcaster and Religious Services
Case Study: How One Church Stepped Up To Livestream Their Services
For so many people, participating with a local religious organization is about connection and support. Due to social distancing, many places of worship have had to get creative to connect their members through video. For long time videographer and Grandview Church member, Greg Mashburn, it was time to utilize his 30 years of professional videography experience to help his local congregation record and livestream their services.
Frequently Asked Questions
We know you have them.
Can we include pre-recorded segments in our broadcast?
Yes, as long as you select the right software, you are able to include pre-recorded segments. Many churches prefer to have the bulk of the service live while including some pre-recorded elements. The Padcaster support team is here to help with software recommendations.
How many people does it take to film the broadcast?
Because of Padcaster’s ease of use, a single person can operate the broadcast. The Parrot Teleprompter even comes with a bluetooth remote, so the Pastor or other speaker can record themselves.
Can Padcaster be used for small group meetings such as bible study?
Yes. Padcaster can help with any videos you want to create, regardless of audience size. If you want to keep a livestream private for a more intimate event such as a bible study, the Padcaster support team can help you select the correct software and privacy settings.
If my church needs a custom solution, can we put together our own package?
Yes! We understand that all churches have unique needs and we are happy to work with you to put together a custom package based on your goals and what equipment you may already have.
