Wow! What an exciting new year! In the world of Presentation software, it is a landmark day...more exciting tools to help you get those images on the screen.
I received a notice in my inbox this morning that Media Shout Version 5 is being released. Now personally, after over 15 years of worship ministry, I am a big fan of using ProPresenter over MediaShout, even though we are dealers for both. However, there are some advantages to using MediaShout. They are promoting some great new features that made me take a second look and so should you. Here are some of the features that stood out to me:
Go check it our HERE and see for yourself. The upgrade price to this new version is $219 and the new purchase price is $399.
BUT WAIT...Thats not all. I go over to ProPresenter's website and BEHOLD, they have released a CLOUD version...Wha...? Is that their answer to MediaShout 5? This is a great idea! At our church, the media person works on ProPresenter at home then brings up her thumb drive on Sunday mornings with everything on it. This new cloud version could be a great solution for us and for other churches that have volunteers setting up their presentations. Monthly plans start at $12.
Either way you go, both of these programs are easy to use and great for presentations. How do you pick? You need to decide what is best for your church, what are your needs? Who is setting up and running your presentations? Is it a paid staff person or a volunteer? It's always about the people and making Sunday mornings as stress-free as possible. I will do a more complete review on both products very soon.
If you need any help with recommendations, if you want to purchase the software or need training, CALL US. We are direct dealers for both products and will put together a package price with set-up and training. 479-646-5901
Netflix has been around our house for several years now. We started with the DVD rental a few years back, then moved to streaming only. This past year I upgraded our ATT Uverse internet to the maximum so that we could all stream live at the same time. That seems to be what happens at our house on a daily basis. We only have one main TV in our house, so that often means the parents will be watching something on Netflix in the living room while one kid is watching it on her Ipad in her room and the other kid is watching Netflix on his computer in his room...now thats a lot of bandwidth!
With the expansion of smart TV systems, online viewing has become commonplace. Netflix has always been our top app choice for watching movies and TV, even though finding those movies can sometimes be very difficult in their search system. The best option is to do a search online for the top Netflix movies and you will find a list, then you can search it on the Netflix app and find it. The app also has the ability to add users and restrict accounts for your children so they can only access movies and shows that you approve.
Below is a list of our family's top ten favorite TV Series' :
