Scalable Multisite Streaming for Flatirons Church
Unfortunately, these systems often come at a very high cost, but MacTavish knew that a robust streaming experience was necessary for the Flatirons to offer confidence in the multisite experience and positive guest impressions that don’t end in awkward interruptions. It wasn’t that the church hadn’t attempted other options. According to Matt Strong, Summit Integrated Systems Technical Engineer (former Flatirons Technical Director), “In previous solutions, we ran into issues with both the streaming solution failing or a server on the end of the streaming solution being either difficult to use and failing.” Reluctantly, the church began streaming using a Metro Ethernet (dedicated internet) line and an encoder/decoder system that required an exorbitant monthly fee.
From that time, MacTavish has trusted the Resi Multisite Platform to stream weekly services to Flatirons’ multisite campuses. Powered by the patented Resilient Streaming Protocol and leveraging a short delay, the platform consistently streams using HEVC/H.265 compression, ensuring no pixelation, framedrops, or interruptions — at a fraction of the cost of the previous system utilized by the church. As Strong explains, “With Resi we can now move to much cheaper internet connections at higher speeds, saving us thousands of dollars a month at each campus while consistently getting good quality video.”
As Flatirons continues to expand, MacTavish knows that Resi will be able to grow with the church, providing an easy to use, reliable, cost-effective streaming solution for future campuses. And, with support designed specifically for churches (including weekends), he knows that the church can depend on the platform. “I’d honestly say, having as many campuses as we have, that you can’t underestimate the importance of the product, delivery, and support,” MacTavish notes. “With Resi, it’s just been rock solid since we’ve started. I don’t know of anybody else that can give that level of product and support that we’ve received.”
