Sunday services look a little different right now with COVID-19 restrictions in place. The pews are empty but that doesn’t mean parishioners aren’t worshipping. Many houses of worship are turning to technology to reach the congregation.

For the churches who don’t stream their services online regularly, it’s been a scramble. The main misperception -- adding video production is really hard-- it’s something only megachurches do. But that’s not the case.

“Religious communities are trying to stream as best they can with what they have,” said Paul Cords, Director of Brand Sales for Vaddio.


Cords says, “we worked with a church that was even using a smartphone at the back to stream their service. Of course, it’s not ideal, but there is good news. Most houses of worship already have an audio system in place, so it’s just a matter of getting the video to match up with the audio and onto the internet”.
