Understanding the Word “Broadcast” in a Church Setting
While visiting a large church, I was impressed with their broadcast video setup and asked their lead tech about it. He looked confused. I clarified that I wanted to see their online video technical setup. He said they would show me their “Cinematic Setup,” which is how they handle video for their online audience.
Seeing this confusion often, let’s define what “broadcast” means and why it’s important to understand that term in a cinematic world. According to Mr. Webster, the word “broadcast” is “to send out or transmit something by means of radio, television or by streaming over the internet” (https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/broadcast).
