Atlanta Bound!

Hello again! This week I will be in Atlanta, GA from Tues. Sept. 18th through Thurs. Sept. 20th for the Worship FX Conference - http://www.wfxweb.com/atlanta-2012/wfx-atlanta-2012/. There are two reasons for this trip:

FIrst I will be on a discussion panel with one of the many exhibitors discussing streaming live and time-shifted technology - http://www.wfxweb.com/atlanta-2012/conference1/2012-w10/. As many of you know, we use Wowza Media Systems for our high quality stream to Blue Valley - http://www.highkmedia.tv/live.html. See the links located on the side bar for true representation. The embedded link is a Ustream feed that most of our viewers see. I try to separate the masses from our Wowza stream so our Blue Valley folks have an unit erupted sermon view each Sunday.

Secondly, Hillcrest has been nominated for the Solomon Award - http://www.wfxweb.com/atlanta-2012/awards1/. This awards program is designed to recognize churches and their partners for:

Excellence in facilities design
Building
Operation
Use
Technical production

Since church size and budgets are significant constraints, certain awards are given within designated size categories. Churches of all sizes are encouraged to apply! Winners will be announced at WFX on Wednesday, September 19th. Keep your fingers crossed.

Even if Hillcrest is not elected for this award, I am still quite amazed at what this church, the people and it’s volunteers have provided to get to this point. It’s only been 4 years since we ventured into multisite and the video led technology to make that a reality, and I think we have come a long way in a short amount of time. You all our the best, and Robert and I could not have done it without your continued service.
