Momentum Church, a multi-campus church in Pensacola, Florida, has successfully transitioned from using pre-recorded video of their Sunday service to live mobile streaming with cellular hotspots. Neither of the two schools where the church’s portable campuses meet was able to provide access to a hardwired internet connection, so Momentum’s technical team deployed a cellular option. “This opens the door for churches everywhere who want to get their message out, but don’t have access to cable or fiber internet,” explains Alex Velarde, a pastor at Momentum.
Mark Shrimplin, Technical Director, and Mark Steel, Video Technical Coordinator, have been a part of our customer family since January of 2016. Throughout our time getting to know both Marks, we have enjoyed hearing their rich multisite history. Among the pioneers of multisite video streaming since 2002, they were one of the first to make it happen over the public internet, so of course that makes us natural fans of them.
