On the ground: Video Livestreaming

by | Mar 24, 2020 |

Over the past two weeks of the coronavirus pandemic, we'ved worked and consulted with a myriad churches of many widely differeing traditions to implement, set up, and tweak video capture and livestreaming setups. While this has become the pressing conversation in our work most recently, this not a new area of focus or a one-off type of work for us at Somerset Media Group, where we've implemented livestream solutions for dozens of churches and campuses of all sizes for several years. We'd love to be of assistance to you, and we have the ability to provide anything from temporary rentals to complete installed systems. The State of NJ has deemed church staff members who are engaging in livestreaming, and the people supporting them, as "essential activities." Feel free to contact us directly at info@somersetmediagroup.com or (908) 315-3553. We'd love to connect!

Video Livestreaming

by | Mar 16, 2020 |

In these challenging and unprecendented times of coronavirus, churches are looking for ways to stay connected to their congregations and communities. One of the technologies we have implemented for numerous church partners over the past couple years is video livestreaming to Facebook Live or similar outlets. Now, that technology is becoming essential for churches in this new season. We'd be happy to walk you through the process, answer questions, or even set up a temporary or permanent system for you. In other words, we want to help! Feel free to contact us directly at info@somersetmediagroup.com or (908) 315-3553. We'd love to connect!

Each year, we get to this point in the year at Somerset Media Group, and in the midst of the last, mad rush to finalize projects for our wonderful clients before Christmas, we also get to look back and reflect on the story and adventure each year has been, with each project, each place, each system and installation its own unique story. We get to celebrate the new friends we’ve made and new places we’ve been, and the happy returns and revisits to old friends. We look forward to a new, exciting story in 2018, which is already beginning to fill up with new projects and new adventures!
A huge thank you to each of the organizations and folks we’ve gotten to partner with and serve in 2017, in small ways and big ones!
