Are you worried about the pandemic shutting your event down?

Well, worry no more—we’ve got you covered. The Voice of Prophecy team has built a brand-new custom event platform that will allow you to hold your meetings virtually.

You’ll love this: it’s been modeled after the actual in-person venue so that your guests get the same kind of attention they’d experience at an in-person event. Here are some of the features your guests will enjoy:

• Pre-registration
• Opening night registration or confirmation
• Personal greeting
• A seminar room
• An interactive window for guests to share immediate feedback to questionnaires,
surveys, and appeals
• The ability for guests to meet with you one-on-one or in a group setting. This is
especially helpful for small group classes, further studies, or when individual
questions or prayer requests arise.
• The ability to seamlessly transition from live presentation to prerecorded content
• And much more!

Though there’s nothing better than meeting your audience face-to-face in your venue, with this platform you’ll have the ability to weather any shutdown and continue the mission and vision that God has placed on your heart and church. You can make your event plans with confidence knowing that lockdowns won’t stop you from seamlessly ministering to your audience.

Tech Requirements for Virtual Hosting

Listed below are the technical requirements for hosts planning to use our virtual platform. You have the option of running a minimal operation, but we recommend setting up a larger operation—you’ll be investing in virtual evangelism for the future as well. Whatever your choose, make sure you have some tech-savvy help to direct and troubleshoot your whole setup, and allow ample time for testing to ensure everything runs smoothly.

Bare minimum operation:

– A computer no more than 3 years old
– i5 quad-core Intel or AMD Ryzen 5 six-core or greater CPU. We do not recommend the M1 Apple CPU at this point.
– Laptops with SSD preferred with built-in camera, microphone, and speakers. If you’re using a different camera, you’ll need a HDMI video capture card with webcam output (for example, something like this).
– 8 MB or more of RAM

Recommended:

Basic production with 2 or more cameras:

– The above computer requirements
– Blackmagic Design ATEM Mini HDMI Live Stream Switcher (link)
– USB-C cable to connect encoding computer to ATEM video switcher

Advanced production with 2 or more cameras:

– Encoding computer: no more than 3 years old with Intel i7 quad-core or better CPU, 16 GB RAM or more, SSD drive, USB-C port (example)
– Blackmagic Design ATEM Mini Pro (link) or ISO HDMI Live Stream Switcher or better
– USB-C cable to connect encoding computer to ATEM video switcher
– Media/presenter computer for slide show: no more than 3 years old with Intel i5 quad-core or better CPU, 8 GB RAM or more, SSD drive, HDMI output port

Note: Streaming location must have dedicated 20 Mbps internet upload speed. (This is the speed you can upload a video file to YouTube, not the download speed, which is normally higher.) Before your event, you’ll want to test your upload speeds during the times of day you plan to run your event—to make sure you actually have the speed you need to run your program.
