The live production landscape is rapidly changing, and church techs, among other live streaming teams, have to keep up! Luckily, some devices and cameras are guaranteed upgrades to the quality of a stream, especially PTZ cameras.
Features like remote control, IP connectivity, streaming support, and auto tracking can become valuable assets to house of worship streaming. As camera manufacturers are becoming more and more aware of this, these elements are only becoming more prevalent in PTZ Cameras.
"Before PTZ cameras existed you always needed a camera operator to control the camera, zoom, and follow the pastor or whomever. That took a lot of volunteers and it was a very high expense––and with needing to train that many volunteers, a lot of churches just stuck with one camera.”
