First Met offers livestreaming and recording. In our Sanctuary we can livestream or videotape your event to friends, family members and/or audiences around the world. They can watch the event in real time as it takes place and we can also burn DVDs to keep for yourself and watch later.
We use two cameras to capture both wide angles and close-ups for a lifelike viewing experience.We can also incorporate PowerPoint visuals or video in the stream.
We stream every Sunday 11 a.m. service and have livestreamed musical concerts with bands and choirs, along with workshops, speakers, memorial services and conferences such as our own Epiphany Explorations.
