Step 1: We ship you our “Studio in a box” which includes two 4K PTZ cameras and our encoding device. Clients typically purchase our PTZ cameras if they don’t have their own. Our encoder acts as the hub, linking your cameras, audio (from your soundboard), and internet.
Step 2: Schedule your service using our online platform. Set the start time, end time, date, and streaming destinations… we handle the rest.
Step 3: Your dedicated videographer remotely connects to our system to pan, tilt, zoom, and mix between different camera angles for an interactive experience.
Step 4: Included with your subscription is access to our premium live web player that you can embed directly on your website (with unlimited viewers, archive, live chat, upcoming schedule, and giving button). We then live stream and record your service to all of your favorite destinations such as YouTube, Facebook, and Vimeo.
LiveControl exclusively uses PTZ Cameras to control and operate your service. We also manufacture our own 4K, 35x optical zoom PTZ cameras and don’t require any additional equipment. We integrate with all of the major brands, so if you already have PTZ cameras, we can operate them! If you have old production equipment that we'll be replacing, we have a generous buy back program and can provide a trade-in value for your old equipment.
Absolutely! We’re the true, all-in-one solution! All of our subscription plans include unlimited live streaming through YouTube and Facebook, as well as your own customized streaming page.
LiveControl specializes in controlling PTZ cameras remotely. Think of us as replacing someone physically coming to your organization and operating the camera.
We remotely control the camera to better engage your audience with dynamic camera movements. LiveControl operates the camera, while StreamSpot / Boxcast / Livestream / Vimeo / Facebook / YouTube takes the camera signal and distributes it to your website and all of your favorite destinations.
An operated service is the core product of LiveControl. You will have your own dedicated videographer who is remotely producing/directing/operating your service. They will pan/tilt/zoom/mix the cameras to produce an engaging and interactive service.
An operated service requires the use of 1 Service Credit from your monthly allotment and requires at least 48 hour notice (although we try our best to accommodate all requests). Each credit covers up to 2.5 hours of camera operation.
A non-operated service automatically turns your main camera on and off at the specified time in order to live stream and record the service. All of our subscription packages include unlimited non-operated services and do not require any service credits. These services can be scheduled within 1 minute of your desired event start time and are a great way to stream and record events that do not require a full production (i.e. bible study, daily devotionals, etc…)
We tap-in directly from your sound board to our audio interface device to capture the audio directly. We accept XLR, ¼”, ⅛”, and RCA audio inputs. Our operators are able to identify and notify you of any audio problems happening during your service, but we do not have control over the individual mix. Most clients simply send us the main output of their board.
Our graphics add-on allows our clients to connect their 3rd party presentation software (ProPresenter, ProClaim, Worship Extreme, PowerPoint, etc…) to our encoder, allowing you to share content directly on the live stream. This is ideal for sharing and inserting Pre-roll, B-roll, post-roll, lyrics, pre-recorded videos, and anything else directly onto the live stream.
We require a minimum upload speed of 10 mbps. We don’t utilize wireless networks, but instead require a direct ethernet connection for the internet.
The majority of our clients choose to install our system themselves. Many clients choose to work with an installer - either a general installer or audio-visual expert installer depending on the nature of the setup - to run the Cat 6 cable through the wall. Each camera requires one Cat 6 cable to the encoder (PoE). Let us know if you need assistance in identifying an installer and our team will gladly help!
All of our pricing reflects month-to-month terms, with no contract commitments or cancellation fees. However, we often have promotions for annual contracts!
Pricing is based on how many operated services per week you use (remember that unlimited non-operated services are included for free).
