Subscription vs. Purchase-per-need
Purchase per need seems to be more popular,
FirstCom – most expensive subscription service for music ($1400-1500/year)
AudioJungle.net – quality not quite the same as more expensive
Envato – Good stuff
IVAudio – Good, high quality
Graceway & Igniter partners
NewLife Church – creative.newlife.tv
DSLR – Cannon, don’t deal with audio very well, super cheap though
Panasonic AF100 $5-8k
BlackMagic Cinema camera $3-5k
Streaming in HD is stupid; no one has the bandwidth for that
Coraplast for screens
Sermon.net – sermon audio files, video available as well
Wowza – $20/mo – more technical knowledge required
Same as ustream, but the professional service
Premiere vs. Final Cut
Premiere is better especially for churches
