Post updates for SHPC Media Ministry; this will help keep team updated on the latest additions or changes.
Today the Toshiba DVR ran out of space about 25 minutes into the service and stopped recording.
Deleting several services from 2010 freed space on the HDD. Recording was restarted and is working fine now.
We need a procedure for removing older services from the HDD to ensure space is available for Sunday’s recording session.
We use Ustream.tv to stream and archive our worship services. We use the Ustream Producer (free version) product to run our stream. This usually works very well but today we kept dropping the connection to Ustream. The error is “Low Bandwidth”. Checking with http://speakeasy.net shows the upload and download speeds are 20Mbs and 4Mbs respectively. I’m assuming we have an issue internally…maybe a backup is scheduled for now or all computers are doing updates?
Lowering the broadcast settings to Medium seems to have corrected the issue for now. We have been streaming for 18 minutes with no loss.
We are using Integracon for our IT services. We need to discuss this issue with them ASAP and correct the issues.
Scott from Broadway Sound setup this mixer as a loaner while our Digital Mackie TT24 is in the shop for some repairs to the output channel for the Chapel
We’re having issues with sound quality and audio mapping. One of the issues is that our soloists don’t want to be amplified to the room…we only want them amplified to the DVR, CD Recorder, and Ustream feed.
fix issues with internet connection. replaced bad switch in basement below coffee meeting room behind chapel.
No audio on CDs due to wrong input selection; Input was set to Input1…MUST BE SET TO XLR! Also, unit appeared to be frozen; had to cycle power to get unit working again. LRK
Video issues with Ustream feed on Youth Sunday were due to bug in Ustream advanced video settings page. Frame rate in FPS was set to NAN…this should not be possible thus the bug. LRK
installed iStat dashboard widget on streaming 17” iMac in control room. I’m concerned this little iMac doesn’t have enough processor to stream the service. It is maxed out most of the time while streaming. I’ll look into a substitute. Maybe borrow one of our new iMacs from the lab. LRK
