General Synod debate at Church House broadcast worldwide

Church House Conference Centre hosted the Church of England’s latest meeting, 10-12 February, and revealed more than 6,000 individual web streams of live video content were delivered as people from around the world tuned in online to watch the General Synod debate key issues across the three days.  

The Church of England’s latest meeting was broadcast around the world by Church House Conference Centre’s in-house AV team. Following an investment of more than £110,000, the Westminster venue recently installed five HD broadcast quality cameras, a Tricaster vision mixer, IPTV system for internal distribution, and supporting equipment to enable its AV team to web stream events to a global audience.

“The investment in web streaming and broadcasting equipment allows us to provide a full professional service for our clients,” says AV Manager, Ian Locke. “Our web streaming and video on demand service adds value to events by allowing the audience to exceed the capacity of our venue and eliminate issues of time and travel for international delegates. It is the second time we have offered a live broadcast of the General Synod meeting at Church House Conference Centre – it went extremely smoothly and we look forward to using the technology again on many more events.”

In addition to the use of live web streaming and video on demand, members at the General Synod also used the venue’s digital voting system and a Twitter wall by logging into the venue’s Wi-Fi and 100Mbps broadband line.
