Attention all broadcasters!
We are excited to present to our broadcasters a completely flexible and affordable solution for LIVE VIDEO WEBCASTING that's easy to use and supports streaming to all PCs, Macs, mobile phones, and televisions!
New Usage Rates! Our webcast rates are unique in that they do not scale up or down based on the number of viewers and so we feel these are the most reasonable and straightforward prices available. And of course all flash-based video webcasts are automatically available on a plethora of mobile platforms at no additional cost.
Updated HTML Embed Codes! We've visually refreshed our HTML embed codes so that you can now embed the actual webcast window on your own website! You can also get the code using the XML|PODCAST button on your homepage.

Flash-Based Webcasts! We now support flash-based H.264+AAC live webcast video streams which enables us to stream to a wide variety of devices including PCs, Macs, Roku TV, and mobile phones like the iPhone, Android, BlackBerry, and more!
Push notification of live webcast events is supported! You'll be notifed via a visible "badge" counter on the app itself will reflect the number of webcasts in progress.
HIFI Update! 800kbps is the maximum allowable bitrate for a single stream for the flash-based webcast solution with HIFI Mode ON and we fully support 16:9 widescreen and 4:3 formats. Take advantage of the higher quality, video size, and bitrates!
Multi-Bitrate Support! Additionally, for flash-based webcasts, we now support multi-bitrate streams so that you can send up to 3 separate bitrates (low, medium, high) to cover a variety of connection speeds, from broadband to mobile to dialup!
New Live Webcast Player! The new webcast player is flash-based for no-hassle playback and it supports both 16:9 and 4:3 video sizes. Select from the available bitrates and even your church's welcome video. An alternate firewall link is supported.
Anyone in the world can listen and participate in your church's complete services in real-time, week-by-week! Open the doors of your church's services to the world. Give visitors a chance to observe what your church is like before they take a step inside!
Our live webcasting solution comes in two packages: FLASH-based or WINDOWS-based. Both are seamlessly integrated into the SermonAudio interface and offer easy-on and -off operation.
This tool is perfect for shut-ins who are unable to make it out to the services. It is also ideal for those church friends who have moved away but would still like to be a part of their "home" church. And it is one more way to open the doors of your church in outreach to your community!
Real-time statistics and site-wide exposure!
We've made it easy to see how many listeners have tuned-in to your webcast. We not only display the "drop-in" isteners, but the peak concurrent listeners as well. Think of the analogy of visitors walking in through your church doors vs. the maximum number who stay at any given point. For maximum exposure, when a live webcast is in progress, a red "LIVE WEBCAST" box is prominently shown at the top of each page.
Also, you'll receive a webcast PDF report every month that shows all webcast sessions for that month, the concurrent and total number of listeners, and what general geographic area people were listening from!
We've made it super-easy to turn ON and OFF the live feed at any time. Simply start the webcast encoder on your PC and we'll take care of the rest! Notifications. Twitter. Lighting up red on your homepage.
Live stream to mobile devices! The flash-based H.264 webcasting solution automatically makes your stream available to a plethora of mobile devices including the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Android, BlackBerry, and ROKU and Apple TV.
You can post weblogs or events with a special webcast flag to help listeners be aware of upcoming webcasts. These are displayed separately in the Live Webcasts section. In addition, you can use the easy-to-use schedule editor (EDIT link on homepage) to indicate recurring weekly webcasts.
Using our Notification Manager or Twitter Integration interested users can be immediately notified when a live webcast is currently in progress by any of your favorite broadcasters. Never miss a webcast again!
