[Update to this post coming soon ~ it’s all a learning curve]
We wanted to be able to send either a live video feed, a DVD or a DSTV signal for 4 TV screens around our Church building. Mainly so the mom’s in the Mothers Room could feel like they’re a part of our meetings by being able to watch and listen to the worship, the preaching and whatever else happens in the meeting.
Plus we wanted to create a nice vibe in the coffee shop and lounge area by running our announcements (via DVD) or DSTV to these screens. This is going to be great when SupeRubgy kicks off end of Feb.
The options for any video installation are endless! but we opted for something that’s simple and works. At the moment we have 3 channels: Channel 1 sends a DSTV signal to all 4 screens, Channel 2 a live camera feed and Channel 3 a DVD signal.
I’ve attached a .pdf showing our setup.
Hope it helps you in some way if you’re looking do a video installation on the cheap.
