Directing multi-camera Church Video Worship Experience

Last weekend I had the pleasure of directing a church worship concert featuring world reknown worship leader William McDowell (famous for the song 'I give myself away') in his first UK live appearance.

It was a very simple setup based around our inexpensive HD Mobile studio live production unit, and 3 Sony EX1 cameras fed via SDI cables allowing us to capture the event in full HD.

I also had to make provisions for an overflow room in a building about 100m away, and that was easily solved by running another SDI cable from the back of the Church's Datavideo SE-2000 HD Mixer all the way across the courtyard into one of those $500 SDI converter boxes which paid for itself on this occasion, as the long cable run would not have been possible without the SDI interface which meant there was no loss of signal quality up to the projector going onto the 12 foot screen.

Those who were not able to attend also had a chance to watch via our live church video stream.

It was a very successful technical event for the church video media department team members and our experience from using the Datavideo HS-2000 every week during services paid off.

Thanks for posting info on how you directed the video production of this concert. It was informative seeing examples of the finished video stream.
