The Bridge Installs VITEC Streaming Solution

News Image
VITEC's video-streaming solution has been installed in two houses of worship for The Bridge Christian Church. The Bridge is using a VITEC MGW Nano HD encoder and MGW Premium HD decoder at each location for error-free, low-latency streaming between the campuses in Tucson, Arizona.

"The Bridge is committed to live streaming so that both the main and satellite campuses can experience the weekend services and other church events together," explained Jay Patton, technology operations minister for The Bridge Christian Church. "What was most impressive to us about the VITEC solution was that we could get reliable, high-quality, low-latency streams over the public Internet, which can be notoriously unstable. With VITEC we can bring both locations closer together using high-end technology over the same Internet we all use at home, which is a huge cost savings versus satellite or fiber."

With VITEC's streaming solution, The Bridge experiences delays of less than two seconds during real-time streaming. This is a critical factor in seamless bidirectional streaming between the campuses. Furthermore, the VITEC hardware, combined with VITEC's advanced video compression technology, can encode and stream video up to 1080p60. In addition, due to VITEC's partnership with Zixi, The Bridge benefits from Zixi Stream Protection for zero-error delivery over unmanaged networks.

The Bridge uses the VITEC solution most often for point-to-point streaming, where the output of the TriCaster system at the main campus is fed into the MGW Nano HD encoder for streaming to the MGW Premium decoder at the satellite campus. Around twice a month, The Bridge uses both sets of VITEC encoders and decoders for two-way communication between the two campuses.

"Like many houses of worship, The Bridge needed a stable, reliable way to deliver high-quality, real-time video between its main church and its satellite campus without using a costly satellite transmission service," said Mark D'Addio, VP of business development and emerging markets, VITEC. "The Bridge's installation is a great example of how the VITEC/Zixi streaming solution helps houses of worship foster a sense of community between multisite congregations in a dependable way that's far more affordable than satellite or fiber – and with HD video that is just as pristine."
