SBCOD Livestream Equipment Upgrade Campaign
Campaign justification: With the continued reliance on livestreaming our worship services at Second Baptist Church to reach the majority of our members it has become imperative that we look to secure its availability by investing into upgraded livestream equipment as we move into the future.
Currently, we are operating our Sunday livestream services with a fifteen-year-old camera and two fifteen-year-old laptops. And with our livestream production software constantly getting upgraded and improved, eventually the laptops will not be able to support the software requirements. We are currently just utilizing the bare minimum of the livestream software capabilities due to the laptop’s limitations.
I am asking the church members to support this campaign with their donations to upgrade of our livestream equipment. With the success of this campaign, we will be able to purchase two PTZ livestreaming cameras, a Live Streaming Video/Audio Mixer and Switcher, a PTZ Joystick Controller, an 8-Port 1G managed PoE+ Ethernet switch, a compact 3G-SDI to HDMI converter, SDI Cables, a HP All-In-One 8GB Memory – 256GB SSD Computer and upgraded vMix livestream production software. 
A description of these items and a quote from BZB Gear is below. Thank you for your support and we look forward to continue to provide spiritually enriched services through our livestream platform here at Second Baptist.
God Bless,
Eric Smith
