What is streaming?
Streaming is done with the use of multimedia that is constantly received by and presented to an end-user while being delivered by a provider. The verb “to stream” refers to the process of delivering media in this manner; the term refers to the delivery method of the medium, rather than the medium itself, and is an alternative to file downloading. So then Live streaming refers to Internet content delivered in real-time, as events happen, much as live television broadcasts its contents over the airwaves via a television signal.

Live internet streaming requires a form of source media (e.g. a video camera, an audio interface, screen capture software), an encoder to digitize the content, a media publisher, and a content delivery network to distribute and deliver the content.
Live stream your Church? Well, here’s how you do it
First of all, you may need to go shopping. But believe it or not, most of the equipment you need to get started live streaming probably already resides in a dark closet behind the control room at your church.
Here’s what you need:
- A camera: It’s ok to start small with the camera (you can always upgrade in the future, when you get a bigger budget). Canon makes a great little camera for about $299 that’s perfectly fine for streaming
- A cable/convertor box: For live streaming, it’s easiest to use a FireWire cable directly from the camera to the streaming computer
- A computer: A quad-core computer is preferable, loaded with at least 8GB RAM. You can stream successfully with a dual-core processor and lesser RAM, but the more computing power you have, the better.
- An Internet connection: You’ll need a high-speed Internet connection at church. Usually 10MB of download capacity and 1.5MB upload is pretty standard on any monthly package from your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
