The PowerStream Pro also archives the service for future "on-demand" broadcasts to members who can't view the live event.
"Our congregation is very well-traveled, and as a result, their children live around the world. The PowerStream Pro allows us to reach them in a cost-effective manner," said Christy Thomas, associate pastor, Lovers Lane United Methodist Church in Dallas. "A large number of our members also have military family and friends in Iraq, and Web-streaming is one way these isolated parishioners can stay in touch with their local church."
The Lovers Lane church decided to adopt the encoder after a trial run last week. The installation, on Dec. 20, took less than an hour from start to finish.
"A church's Web site is often its first interface with future members. People want to get to know the people and services behind the institution before joining it and we're pleased we can play a role. Our streaming services and products help knock down the 'unknown' barrier as well as allow churches to reach out to existing members across time and distance," said Dave Stoner ston·er
