RECORDING OR LIVE-STREAMING OF SERVICES

Technology Requirements

 

The Cathedral offers free WIFI throughout the whole campus, as well as a free public internet service with modest upload speeds.

We also have a high-quality multi-camera live streaming capability which is used for a range of services and other events held in the Cathedral.

 

Where possible, we recommend making arrangements for the service to be recorded and/or live-streamed using the professional equipment already installed in the Cathedral. A small additional charge applies, to cover the cost of an additional staff member to manage the technology. This fee can be waived at the discretion of the Dean.

For private services such as baptisms, weddings and funerals, families can also arrange to record and/or live-stream a service using their own smartphone or tablet, and sending the live stream to their personal social media account—such as their own Facebook account. 

 

The basic technology and internet requirement to record or to live stream a service are as follows:

 

To record video during a service

 

  • A smartphone (iPhone or equivalent Android device)

  • Tripod with attachment to hold the smartphone

 

To live-stream a service

 

  • A smartphone (iPhone or equivalent Android device)

  • Tripod with attachment to hold the smartphone

  • Social media account with permission to publish a live video

  • High-speed internet access (Cathedral WIFI or your own mobile broadband)

 

The location of any recording equipment is entirely at the discretion of the priest taking the service, and we will be happy to recommend the most appropriate locations for any camera tripods.

 

No flash or additional lighting is to be used, but the Cathedral already has professional theatre lighting installed.

The Cathedral cannot accept any responsibility for the quality of the recording or the successful performance of the technology.
