Live streaming of religious services

SUMMARY

For many people across the world, religion plays an important part in their daily lives and identities. It is also commonly regarded as consisting of the way people deal with ultimate concerns about their lives and their fate. Religion is very important in local communities, because people can interact directly with local religion leader and have a stronger realationship between people living in that community.

CHALLENGE

In many countries around the globe, people are living under quarantine conditions. Therefore all prayer homes are closed, and people are unable to gather and socialize in local church communities. Now, when faith is more important than ever, many religious people are struggling to cope and abandon their habits of meeting families, friends, and likeminded people in the house of prayer. However, technology can help in this situation by building virtual bridges between priests or pastors and their local church communities. Video cameras, simple laptops are easily accessible; however, to transport religious experience into the virtual realm and everybody’s homes – one key component is missing – reliable and easy to deploy connectivity to the Internet.

SOLUTION

As presented in the topology, the solution focuses on live video streaming of holy Mass in the churches. The solution consists of equipment that requires minimal human interaction: a camera, an HDMI to USB tethering device, a laptop, and one of our RUTX09 professional cellular routers. Most DSLR cameras can offer excellent video quality. However, they are not designed to act as a live streaming device. With HDMI to USB tethering device, the laptop recognizes the camera as it would a webcam – allowing even 4K quality streams. The RUTX09 was chosen for this solution because of a very capable 4G LTE CAT 6 mobile module, which can provide reliable connectivity with speed up to 300 Mbps. Besides, you have the freedom to mount the router where best cellular signal is reachable and connect to the laptop using Dual Band WiFi. Dual SIM functionality with Auto Failover allows leveraging the connection between two mobile operators to keep the live stream in case of any signal drops. Equally important in this solution is to make it plug and play, with RUTX09 paired with our Remote Management System (RMS), it is possible to configure the router or multiple routers remotely and simply send them our to different locations. Even people with no or little technical know-how will have no problem enabling their cellular connectivity with RUTX09.
