The product is as-advertised, but the customer service is exceptional

It has been an excellent experience that exceeded our expectations. We are new to this type of system, and did not know what to expect, but it has been pleasant and efficient.

Pros

When we decided to contract with liveControl, their set up team made it extremely easy to install and integrate all of the equipment. They worked with us throughout the process to make sure we had the right camera angles, lighting, etc. to make the broadcast as professional looking as possible. They have continued to have our back, Like when our Internet glitched in the middle of the night, they contacted us immediately to make sure that we could get back online ASAP

Cons

One major feature that is missing is the ability to use a custom thumbnail on the web player for each recording. The system uses whatever happened to be in front of the camera at the moment it went live as its thumbnail, and it makes it very difficult to make sense of the archived recordings. I am not a programmer, but it seems like that would be a very easy feature to add, and it would add a lot to the ease of use for the end-user.

Reasons for Choosing LiveControl

Primarily, it was customer service. From my very first phone call, the staff was more than willing to make sure all of my questions were answered, and that I felt comfortable. Many of the other products that I inquired about, did not have the same level of service. Since I am not the tech person for our organization, I needed someone to speak to me in plain language. Life control did that.

Singular solution for the live-streaming synagogue or church

We don’t have the time, personnel or funds to dedicate to live-streaming which is becoming and shall remain a critical element of our worship and learning modalities. Livecontrol makes it possible for us to look like pros. And my colleagues in huge synagogues say that Livecontrol scales up easily and at the right price point to service large bigger budget productions too.

Pros

Livecontrol saved the High Holy Days this year (and all our services before and since!). The moving cameras, energizing visuals, ease of use, customizable and scaleable features, and the top notch customer service are perfect for both neophytes and the experienced streaming organizations alike.

Cons

That when I didn’t know how to do something, I didn’t think to contact them earlier. Five minutes with their responsive customer service solved my problem.

Reasons for Switching to LiveControl

Livecontrol could do what others couldn’t - high quality, non-static film/streaming - at a cost we could afford. And they guided us through the onboarding with ease.

I want this to be as good as I thought it would be

Great customer service, great help getting set-up, filming rarely goes as I expect no matter how many notes I leave for the camera operators.

Pros

It is easy to schedule and I trust that something will be filmed

Cons

I wish the camera operators were better.

Reasons for Choosing LiveControl

I wanted to have a system that I could trust someone else to run. It’s fine, but I expected great.

Bring your broadcasting to the next level

I think it’s been very positive and it’s a good company. We’ve had some growing pains as they’ve been growing as well but it’s still very much worth it. I do think the camera operators are sometimes a bit out to lunch and they could do a better job.

Pros

If you’ve been using stationary live control camera at this point it’s going to basically look like a security camera when you moved to this company the quality and the interactivity is really incomparable. There’s lots of things to work out with sound and lighting but they do try very hard and they’re always available as you fix things and get your broadcast better and better.

Cons

Last week we really had a challenge because I mistakenly set the broadcast to begin at 5 PM the operators called us because nobody was in the sanctuary until 6 PM so they stopped the feed and and restarted at 6 unfortunately there was some sort of bug monitor in the system and it prevented our feed on our browser from being live and was very very hard for our elderly people you do not belong to social media to watch it on a different platform that night. I called him during the service to try to rectify it as people were calling me.

Reasons for Choosing LiveControl

We didn’t look at anything else

Reasons for Switching to LiveControl

We switched because we wanted a much better worship experience as we have grown very much virtually.

Review

Customer service its outstanding. Livestreaming not so much. I am very disappointed with the weekly livestream. For special event, they have been outstanding. I wish they did not have to assign different operators every weekend.

Pros

convenience of not having to depend on a volunteer or have to hire someone to run the cameras

Cons

I still had to have a volunteer run the graphics Change of operators at every event does not allow for improvement on livestream Not having an assigned operator/s does not allow for improvement. Its like teaching every operator how the order of the service. this system its supposed to be less work for me but it has become more work for me. I feel frustrated with the changing of operators not knowing the flow of the service. We've been with LiveControl since March and still the operator does not know when to switch to the lector, operator does show creativity, our building has beautiful stained glass windows they hardly ever show. I've instructed many times to be creative and NOTHING. I've been instructed to write an outline, but do I have to write an outline every weekend? I do understand when we have special events, fine but not for every Sunday service.

Reasons for Choosing LiveControl

it seemed like a good concept, maybe it is for Mega churches, but not for Catholic churches.
