High Definition Video System for Church - Software-Based Switcher - 4 Cameras

PART NUMBER: CHURCHHDSYS4CAM

The four-camera high definition video system for a church with software-based switcher offers the ability to livestream, archive and distribute in-house church services and facility functions. The GOHD400 PTZ cameras mounted in the sanctuary capture services in high definition. The pan-tilt-zoom functions of the four cameras are controlled remotely (in the AV room) via the RCC4000 joystick controller. A single controller can control up to six cameras installed in a daisy-chain configuration. Camera positions can be preset with the controller making operation easier for church volunteers. Note, the RCC4000 joystick controller does not have any video functionality. Camera video must be previewed either via the computer monitor (to be discussed below) or via the optional Blackmagic dual screen monitors.

In this system, Wirecast software performs the video switching function. The HD-SDI video signals are sent from each of he four cameras over coax cable (in a home-run configuration, not daisy-chain) to the AV room in the church where they are captured to a Windows-based computer (not Mac) via the Magewell PC-400-DE-SDI four channel PCIe capture card. Audio is captured from an existing sound board into Wirecast via the computer microphone input or an optional audio-to-USB device. Please note, the required computer for this system will need to be sourced elsewhere. Below we have provided a link to the minimum system requirements for Wirecast. Within Wirecast, you can switch between cameras, select transitions and fades, add lower third graphics, titles and more. In addition to video from the cameras, you can also add computer screens as an another source via Wirecast's Desktop Presenter. This is perfect for incorporating scripture/lyrics in your broadcast.

Beyond live editing/production functions, with Wirecast you have the option to RECORD and/or LIVE STREAM and/or OUTPUT the broadcast for in-house distribution. Wirecast enables you to specify many output settings for your broadcast. You can configure Wirecast to broadcast multiple data rates simultaneously, or even stream and record with different encoders at the same time.

Wirecast is integrated with over 30 streaming destinations, such as Facebook Live, YouTube Live, Twitch, Microsoft Azure, DaCast, Churchstreaming.tv, Wowza, Hitbox and more. Streaming to these destinations is as easy as entering your username and password in Wirecast and getting automatically connected with your account. Note, this video system and Wirecast does NOT include a streaming services. A streaming service subscription/account must be set up separately.

When recording the broadcast, you select the destination (for example, save to a folder on the Wirecast computer or on an external hard drive) and the file format (MP4 or Windows Media, MOV). The recorded service can be uploaded to the internet for parishioners to view, burned to DVD and/or archived.

A Blackmagic playback device (such as the Decklink Mini Monitor or Intensity Pro 4K PCIe cards) can be used to output the broadcast for live distribution to TVs or projectors in the church facility. The type of distribution system to be used would depend on the number of TVs you want to broadcast to and the location of the TVs (cable lengths required to reach the TVs). Church services can be viewed live in overflow rooms, cry rooms or nurseries, for example.

If this system does not meet your needs, please feel free to CONTACT US with your specifications and requirements and we would be happy to put together a custom house of worship video system.

    BLACKMAGIC HDL-SMTVDUO OPTIONAL PREVIEW MONITORS FOR PTZ CONTROLLER
    Although Wirecast does provide previews of all video sources, some prefer external preview monitors to be used be the RCC4000 joystick controller operator. These two external monitors provide a live preview of each camera and can be especially useful if there is one person operating the joystick controller and a different person operating Wirecast (sharing a single computer monitor may not be ideal).
  • Video runs from each camera into the video inputs of the HDL-SMTVDUO and then loops out to continue to the computer for input in Wirecast.
  • The HDL-SMTVDUO is a dual monitor unit so two HDL-SMTVDUO units are need to accommodate four cameras.
  • Four 10 ft BNC cables have been included to run from the loop-out of the HDL-SMTVDUO to the computer.

    OPTIONAL PROGRAM FEED OUTPUT
    If you want to output the broadcast (video and audio) for live distribution to in-house TVs/monitors/projectors, you will need a Blackmagic playback device such as one of the options below.
