Attention all broadcasters!
We are excited to present to our broadcasters a completely re-architected and affordable solution for LIVE WEBCASTING that's easy to use, beautifully implemented, and just works on all platforms. 100% rewritten from the ground up, our system is built on a modern cloud-based auto-scaling architecture and is packed with features.
Wide platform support.
Our webcasting solution automatically makes your stream available to a multitude of devices including the iPhone, iPad, Android, Echo, and Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, Amazon Echo, Listen Line, and even your own Church App.
We like to keep it simple.
We believe you'll appreciate just how simple we've made it for you. Push a single stream using any software or hardware encoder using the supplied stream key and we take care of transcoding it to multiple bitrate streamsâ€”including an audio-only stream. Live webcasting was never so easy.
All-in-one hardware encoders such as LiveU or the ATEM Mini or software encoders such as Wirecast or OBS Studio work seamlessly.
Webcast Manager provides real-time viewer stats.
The Webcast Manager is the command center where all the action happens! Watch how the various geographic locations around the world start lighting up on the map in real-time as people tune in. It's a beautiful interface and we know you'll enjoy its simplicity.
New! You are now alerted to possible webcast issues as we monitor the health of your webcast connection and your webcast settings like resolution, bitrate, etc.
Webcast Analytics provides flexible on-demand reporting.
The Webcast Analytics allows you to dynamically create reports and graphs of your webcasts instantly by any date range. See a beautiful and visual summary of viewers by geographic location. Completely customizable. Completely printable.
Webcast archiving done right.
You can now archive a live webcast into a proper sermon by clicking on Create Draft beside any recent webcast listed. Our interface encourages proper naming, trimming, thumbnails, etc for your convenience. It's webcast archiving done right!
New! You can now create multiple sermons from a single webcast event. Additionally, you can now upload the webcast media to an existing sermon entry if you wish.
Built-in. No extra charges.
Live webcasting is built-in to every broadcaster account at no extra charge. Rates do not scale up or down based on the number of viewers. So, whether 10 or 1000 viewers, you'll never be surprised with an overage charge! Reasonable and straightforward.
Audio-only webcast support.
We understand that not all churches will have video capability at first. That's why we support audio-only webcasts. Additionally, an audio-only stream is automatically generated for every video webcast so that listeners have the option to enjoy a live webcast with background audio while they keep their screen off.
Fully embeddable on your website with a single line of code.
Easily and beautifully embed the full webcast player on your own website with a quick copy & paste of a single line of code using our Embed Editor! It will automatically go live once your webcast becomes active and plenty of customizable options.
Push notifications for live webcasts.
Users of the ChurchOne App have the option to be instantly notified via push notification when a live webcast is in progress from your church. It's the fastest and most automatic way of letting folks be notified of live webcasts from your church!
Listen Line for analog phones.
Your live webcast stream can now be heard on any regular telephone, without the need for Internet or a smartphone, using our Listen Line! Simply dial 712-432-3410 and tune in for free! Or, order your own dedicated Listen Line phone number.
Site-wide exposure and special map pin.
We've made it easy to see when your webcast is live. It appears prominently in various places on SermonAudioâ€”like the Church Finder, the Webcast section, the My Local section, as well as on any of your sermons.
Live webcasting is immediately available to every broadcaster on SermonAudio. Simply login to the Dashboard and take a look at the Webcast Manager to get started and see for yourself how easy it is!
