To fulfil that mission, the main Chandler campus’ uses a robust two-camera video setup to record the pastor’s weekly message, which is played back at the other two campuses via a software-based video streaming system. However, the system was prone to errors and didn’t provide adequate, reliable quality that would immerse and visually connect its satellite members with the main campus. The organization needed a high-quality, reliable, and easy-to operate platform that would record, protect the stream from any errors that deteriorate the video experience, as well as offer delayed playback in accordance with each campus’ schedule. In addition, it needed to be capable of recording both camera angles of the stage and playback both streams in perfect synchronization.
As a result of VITEC’s Houses of Worship Multi-Site Video Streaming Solution with PVS integration, Cornerstone is able to stream and playback its two camera feeds in perfect synchronization, at the highest HD video quality available, and at the lowest possible latency to the remote site - making it an ideal dual-input, dual-output, time-slipped media record and play-out server.
VITEC's advanced video compression ensures that every stream looks great even on the campus’ multiple large IMAG screens while Zixi's proven, unique transport software eliminates the video-transport problems that are inherent in unmanaged IP networks. This integration ensures that Cornerstone can deliver and playback video streams of unprecedented quality with no stutter, packet loss, or frame-freeze, regardless of network conditions.
Finally, VITEC’s HTTP API allowed Cornerstone to create a custom graphical user interface (GUI) to control and monitor each of the VITEC appliances from a single user interface. With a simple GUI, all Cornerstone volunteers are able to centrally operate the system with ease. This simplifies and streamlines the process, reducing any technical roadblocks that come with management multiple systems and keeps Sunday services operating smoothly.
