Live Streaming

There are lots of streaming  services and you are welcome to use any of the many options available. In addition to the many other options we also have a streaming package. Other systems may offer more options or a smaller price tag so we suggest you study what each service has to offer. We will be happy to help you set it up whatever service you settle on.

Our Live Streaming Package:

The Adventist Church Connect streaming package integrates into your website media and dashboard better than other services. Our service will allow you to share your live events with people around the world directly on your website. Your live stream is easy to add to your website, and is also streamed to mobile devices.

Our video stream serves a dedicated flash stream for website visitors, and a dedicated iOS mobile device friendly stream. With one encoder session, you are able to serve all of your audience on all platforms.

We use a "Content Delivery Network" (CDN) with points of presence around the globe. Your video feed will be easily received no matter how close or far your audience is located from you. This means that we do not use just one server to send out the media to your audience, but a network of servers with excellent scalability.

Getting Started is Easy!


After you sign-up for this service, a welcome email with your streaming account user name and password. These credentials are needed to authenticate the encoder to the server. We will also include basic instruction to get you up and running quickly.
