Wireless video has been around for a while now and has become more popular in the last few years. This is largely due to its ease of use, as well as its cost-effectiveness. We’ll go over some basics on how to set up wireless video transmission so you can use your church projection system wirelessly!
As with any new technology, there are plenty of things that could go wrong when setting up wireless video systems. If you’re not sure where to begin or have any questions about what we’ve covered here today, please don’t hesitate to reach out and ask us!
Wireless video transmitters have many advantages for the technologically challenged. For one, you can cut all of those cords in your church sanctuary: it’s nearly effortless to install a wireless transmitter with enough range and power to cover an entire building; this comes without fear of tripping over cables or tangling them up unnecessarily, while still maintaining high-quality audio and video transmission!
Recently we had a bulb go out in our old video projector. I looked online for a replacement bulb and was shocked that it was going to cost us hundreds of dollars.
That’s right! Over $400.00 for a light bulb!
I started researching church projection systems for a small congregation because I was fed up with the old projector. What I found out is that we could upgrade our system, and it wouldn’t cost more than what would have been spent on just one light bulb!
Modern projectors no longer have the right connections, so we need to upgrade the cables to HDMI. But there is one problem: The projector is over 50 feet away from our computer and with an HDMI cable you lose signal quality when going more than 50 feet.
The solution? Transmitting wireless video!
How To Transmit Wireless Video
It is indeed a simple solution. Today we have the technology on how to transmit wireless video if we have an HDMI wireless transmitter and receiver system. I didn’t know such a thing existed. I imagine that some of you didn’t either.
At less than $100.00 cost the benefits of doing it this way outweighed the cost immensely. We didn’t have to
- Buy long HDMI cables and pay someone to run them to the projector and hide them from being seen.
- Use the projection system alongside the live streaming system to provide video for the nursery, overflow, and multi-purpose room.
It has saved us a tremendous headache for little expense.
How To Connect To Your TV Or Projector Wirelessly
On Windows 8 you have an icon at the bottom right that connects you to wireless displays. On my Windows 10 laptop, I have to type in connect in the search bar at the bottom to find the connect wizard. You then tell it to connect to the wireless display listed and there you go!
You now have cut the cables and are transmitting wireless video from your PC to your projector or TV.
