The Father's House is a Church that is ONE church in THREE locations. The Vacaville Campus is the HUB for broadcast at TFH, from the main campus the preaching of the word is streamed to Napa, East Bay, and the CMF campus.
The role of the Vacaville Production Assistant is to:
Turn on monitor
Verify server is on.
Turn Display "ON"
Select "event" from "EVENT" Tab
This will be done after 500 Saturdays and 800 on Sundays.
Set server to "cue" tab
Keep an Eye On Stream
We should be monitoring stream for on the decoder to make sure it's downloading data consistently. We want to identify problems before they happen.
Set "In Point" cue for other campuses
Start cue for streaming is the beginning of the "Meet and Greet" when the band starts to jam. The streaming decoder will follow what's happening live by roughly 90 seconds, so 90 seconds AFTER "M&G" happens live, we will have a visual on the decoder.
Every service TFH Production uses a Blackmagic Design h.264 recorder and uploads review files for pastors. We use Blackmagic Design Media Express to do the actual recording of the video files.
Open Blackmagic Media Express
Open "Log and Capture" Tab
Once "Log and Capture Tab is open, a preview of "Program" video will appear in the video window as well as audio meter indicating signal.
Record with "Capture"
To record video, hit "Capture" at the bottom of the window. The "capture" button will appear depressed and the program should have an animation indicating recording.
-Start recording on device when announcement videos start
-Stop recording at end of altar call
When services are over, rename files according to service date and time (ie. 12.17.16 600, 12.18.16 900, 12.18.16 1100), follow naming process for previous files.
Once services are recorded we'll need to drop the files on the TFH Production Server
-On Production Mac Mini, open "Finder" and select "TFH Production".
-Drop Service files into "Sermon Review"
PLANNING CENTER LIVE
PLANNING CENTER LIVE
Production teams currently use PCO for the run sheet and scheduling, PCO Live takes services to another level by navigating the run sheet to give teams an accurate time of how long each event item of a service runs, as well as overall service time, and actual time event items happen.
Planning Center Online (PCO) Live is a tool used to track timing of services. Vacaville campus will use PCO Live to show N/EB what part of service they are currently in.
