Priced for Non-Profits
Our hardware cost defies market expectations. We keep it low to accomplish a common mission.
The platform is easy even for volunteers. Start streaming and playback with just a few clicks.
Multisite Encoders and Decoders ensure zero content loss throughout the entire transmission path, even in the case of a complete internet outage. This means that leveraging the benefits of a public internet connection to reliably distribute video is now possible. When playing back video all content comes from a local solid state hard drive which can buffer live video in advance.
This means that remote playback sites see exactly what has been encoded — no blackouts, no buffering, no jitter. It is also the only complete solution which can stream two synchronized 1080p videos at full resolution. All of this, designed in a way that is simple for volunteers to operate and easy for technical directors to manage.
Step #3: Video Playback with DVR Controls
Designed with volunteer operators in mind, Living As One has developed a robust yet simple to use video player that runs on dedicated hardware. Multisite Decoder allows playback and pausing of live video, much like a traditional DVR. This enables a remote campus to begin playback whenever they are ready. Regardless of whether the video is playing or paused, Multisite Decoder’s advanced algorithms will continue to buffer (pre-download) live video ahead of time to a local SSD – up to an incredible 60 minutes ahead from the paused location!
This intelligent design ensures that when it comes time to play, the video is played from a local (non-networked) source – eliminating the risk of video pausing or drops in quality. Playback operators have a clear readout of how much content is currently buffered, and are able to monitor health statistics about the local network connection. If the primary network connection is lost, the operator is alerted and can switch to a backup network, such as a cellular hotspot, without interrupting the video playback. The combination of these features give pastors and production volunteers peace of mind during live/time-shifted playback. Never before has live video delivery been so easy and so reliable from end-to-end!
Our Customer Family
Live Production Director, Flatirons Church
“You can’t underestimate the importance of the product, delivery, and support. With Living As One, it’s just been rock solid since we’ve started. I don’t know of anybody else that can give that level of product and support that we’ve received”
Executive Pastor of Campus Operations, Seacoast Church
“I remember being a campus pastor sitting in the front row, and all of sudden, the screen is frozen.. As a campus pastor, you freeze. It’s a terrible terrible feeling.. It sends a lull over the whole congregation. I’m happy to say we brought in Living As One in all 13 locations, and it is absolutely amazing the difference.. We aren’t stressing over the satellite locations anymore for video production..”
IT Director, Northwoods Community Church
“We found the Living As One product to be so resilient that there wasn’t a lot we had to do in order to make it successful. Once we got it set up it really was really pretty much set it and forget it for us.”
