Our church is trying to move into the 21st century. We have the opportunity to apply for a grant of up to $20,000 ($10,000 would be more likely to succeed) for equipment purchases.
We need to be able to accomplish two things. First, to stream our Sunday morning service along with recording for our archive. Second, to host video conferences as a remote site. The Diocese (bigger entity over us) is already setup with MegaMeeting, we just need the equipment to send and receive audio and video to MM in real time.
Given the above, I know I need a Video Camera (or two), a few more Mics, a dedicated computer, and the equipment to hook them all together. It is the last part that I am not sure about.
I'm fairly certain that once I get audio and video into the computer I can get it out to the web, what I need to know is how to mix it all together.
