Customer Testimonials

One of the biggest sources of concern at a video campus is the reliability and quality of the video feed. The DVR feature of Multisite Platform has increased the quality and experience at our remote video campuses dramatically. Because we can pause live video, we are able to begin the service thirty minutes later than the broadcast campus. This provides our volunteers with additional time to set up portable equipment, gives us programming flexibility, and more importantly, ensures that we have thirty minutes of video already downloaded and cued to the correct starting point before we begin playback. Other streaming solutions we tried would skip or pause unexpectedly; but with Multisite Platform, we are confident that video from our broadcast campus will play smoothly and begin at the appropriate time.

Glen BrechnerMultisite Director, Chase Oaks Church

You can’t invite new people into into an environment where live video pauses and expect them to be impressed. We immediately saw the benefits of Living As One, no buffering, so that campus is even starting to grow and moving to a site where they can double in size.

Scott CramerMultisite Director, Northwoods Community Church

It just works! The user interface is simple for our volunteers, and the quality streaming across the public internet to our remote campuses is great. Having two perfectly synchronized videos, each at full 1920x1080 resolution, is a huge improvement over our previous system. Everyone needs to know about this!

Caleb LoeppkyTechnical Director, The Chapel

Living As One Multisite Platform is so easy for volunteers, we're actually using one less tech volunteer. Previously, we had to have a dedicated volunteer attempting to monitor the crazy stream and problem solve. Now, it’s so user-friendly anyone can figure it out, so we just tell volunteers to point and click.

Mark ShrimplinTechnical Director, Woodmen Valley Chapel

When we were preparing to launch our first satellite campus we looked to Living As One to guide us in our technology and network decisions. Their platform has allowed us to stream our services with ease. They handle the technology, so we can focus on serving our community.

Kyung LeePastor, Life Point Church

I unplugged our previous system and plugged Living As One in and it just worked!! We had been using something else for a year and had lots of trouble with it...it was something each week...so my team loves Living As One where we just sit there and watch it work! Happy to get to have confidence in a streaming solution for our campus! I'm thankful to the Living As One team to put a product like this together that works so easily so we can continue communicate the Gospel even more easily and broadly each week!

Lee NordineDirector of AV Technology, Grace Fellowship Church

Our church is growing to 10 campuses over the next 10 years. We were looking at paying thousands of dollars every month just for private network connections between the campuses, or tens of thousands for a satellite infrastructure; but with Living As One's Multisite Platform we are able to use public internet connections that cost a fraction, and our video playback reliability is outstanding!
