If you are going to leverage the power of video marketing for your church and events, you need to take a serious look at Boinx Software‘s Boinx TV. This is a powerful video production software solution that is designed to provide a professional live stream but can also be used to turn a boring video clip into one that looks like it was professionally created.
If you do an announcements video to play before service, and most of the time it is a person speaking into the camera, Boinx TV can give you a wow factor that you never imagined before. The full version is a whopping $499 dollars. But it is well worth it if you are fully leveraging video marketing.
You can also download a “home” version from the Apple App Store for only $49.99 if you would like to take a lesser equipped version for a spin before you invest in the big daddy software.
Many companies are using Boinx TV for their news feeds. But, if you are streaming live on Ustream or another type of streaming service for your sermons or special events, Boinx TV will add a few features that you will fall in love with:
- The ability to add lower thirds, slideshows, graphics, live on the fly.
- The ability to have multiple camera angles (requires either multiple video takes or extra equipment.)
- Ability to transition between a variety of media types into one fluid show.
Think of a TV Commentator going through his show. He brings up quotes full screen, does a split screen with someone he is interviewing, has lower thirds give extra information, have a news ticker across the bottom of the screen going over his key points. All of these things can be done easily with Boinx TV with just a little practice.
Now, I’m going to embarrass myself by posting a video of me teaching a Bible class in a former web property of the 39 network. (Seriously, don’t make fun!) I didn’t get very far because my green screen lighting wasn’t that great and my camera was very cheap. So, I only got 3 lessons into a 20 lesson series. But, this video was made using Boinx TV.
Where you can do this live on the fly with someone sitting at the controls during a live performance, I pre-recorded my video. Then, I ran it through as a video file like that video file was a live event stream from a camera. I then added all the graphics, transitions, and slides in real-time as the video played.
