StarDot Technologies, a small high-tech company, announces their latest NetCamLIVE 2+ camera designed to put churches and meeting halls online, with scheduled broadcasts using YouTube streaming.
YouTube streams reliably to anywhere, and provides a free 24/7 channel. It’s compatible with all modern viewing devices. Once set the camera will run without intervention. StarDot cameras are used by Universities and Space Agencies all over the world.
You can schedule services or leave it running continuously. An adjustable lens lets you frame just where you want in a long meeting hall, or a small room.
Prayer requests can be seen on YouTube and handled using voice over. A wireless mic allows someone to speak, and a sound mixer merges that with your Church audio. The voice is only heard on YouTube.
Voiceover also comes in handy for weddings, where a commentator makes remote listeners feel closer to the activity.
The package is complete, including high quality audio cable and a camera mount.
The camera stresses duplication of the audio quality of your sound system. The camera is very light sensitive, to accommodate the lighting levels of any meeting hall. Even candle light.
Engineer Daniel Lawton commented saying, “We hadn’t fully finished all the features we wanted. I’d hoped to play commercials between live broadcasts. But this camera is such a perfect social distancing solution for COVID-19 that we decided to release it now. It’s sort of ironic. Back in the early 90s we made Nintendo games, including some for Christians. Now our cameras find an audience there too.”
Taiwanese American Vice-President Andy Chan said, “This camera would also be useful for Buddhist Temples, school sports events, yoga studios, or a teacher giving lessons remotely. We already see such things on YouTube, but they typically use a computer. Computers won’t stream reliably, 24/7. This camera will. It was designed to do just that, and has been tested for years. A power outage or internet loss is typically all that will stop this camera from live streaming.”
