Resi Streams 2018 Global Leadership Summit to Churches and Corporations Across Common Platform with HEVC
According to Shana Case, Broadcast Director of Global Leadership Summit, “This is the second year we have used Resi to broadcast the GLS, and I can’t imagine doing another Summit without it! The technology is incredibly reliable, easy to use, and produces high-quality A/V, which creates a world-class viewing experience for our attendees. I am thankful for our partnership with Resi and look forward to all the future possibilities.”
“Using [Resi] for the GLS allowed me to concentrate on the audience experience rather than worry about a dish, signal, redundant testing, et cetera. This was our first Summit and I know we will use the Resi receiver every year going forward. As a first-time Tech Director, I appreciated that it was very much plug-n-play,” explained John Jones, Supervisor of Training and Human Development at Toyota Industrial Equipment.
Additionally, 21 churches who regularly use the Multisite Platform to stream their own weekend services to remote satellite campuses were able to leverage the exact same workflow they are accustomed to using every weekend. No additional hardware or software had to be installed to receive the live GLS event. With permission from the Willow Creek Association, participating churches simply logged into to their Multisite Decoders and streamed the live conference like it was another Sunday morning. James Dager, the Director of Worship Media at Biltmore Church who uses the Multisite Platform on a weekly basis, added “The thought of GLS happening without Live As One is daunting. The process, from beginning to end was incredibly simplistic, yet professional. Hands down, the most user-friendly streaming platform you will ever encounter and GLS couldn’t have happened without it.”
Resi’s Multisite Platform was originally developed to meet the needs of a single multi-site church, and has since grown to support simultaneous video delivery for over 300 multi-site church organizations across the United States alone. Many of these churches have embraced Resi with open arms after having repeated failures with other traditional streaming technologies, which suffer from video loss over unstable internet connections. Resi uses a proprietary method of streaming which allows churches to transmit and receive two live HD videos over standard internet connections in a manner that is completely resilient to temporary internet outages. Even if internet connectivity is lost for minutes at a time, the platform will transmit 100% of the encoded video as soon as any internet connection is available. So long as a short delay is implemented at the receiving satellite campuses (to ensure the video data has time to make it there, depending on the available bandwidth), audiences at the remote campuses will enjoy the exact video which was captured by the encoder – without any framedrops or missing video content.
