Church Video Software

If you are looking for live church video mixing or switching software, you might want to consider boinxtv especially if you have a powerful Apple Mac computer you can spare.



BoinxTV is a software alternative to hardware video mixing/switching systems, and runs on the Apple Mac computer platform. It clams to support up to 3 DV cameras via firewire, and boosts a load of video production tools that makes this a broadcast TV truck in a box.
The aim of this video production software is to enable a small church to be able to record a professionally looking video either for podcasting or cable TV broadcasting. It allows graphic overlays, lower thirds, tickers and many much more tricks that could help a new video ministry establish itself.

I'm still evaluating BoinxTV to see if it is a viable church video software option for our media department, especially since it also means we have to have a strong apple mac.

BoinxTV costs $500, or there is a sponsored edition costing $200 which might fit into smaller church budgets though it requires adding a small video to the end of your production advertising the software manufacturers.

In order to be able to use 3 cameras on your church apple mac laptop computer you need a 6 port firewire hub, this will allow BoinxTV to see all 3 cameras as seperate inputs that can be switched to an output for recording directly to hard drive, projector or live streaming on the internet.
