Can it run ProPresenter?

UPDATED June 7, 2022:

I keep getting questions over in the ProPresenter Users' Group about what computers can run ProPresenter.  This post, which I'll try to keep updated is to answer that question:


M2 Macs?

Once released, the M2 Air and MBP should run Pro7 just as well as the M1 versions (and probably better).  They are still limited to two displays total (including the built in one), so you have to use BMD hardware (or other means) to connect more than that.

M1 Macs?

Yes, but as of January 2021, all of them are limited to two displays: the built in one and one other (in the case of the Air and Pro) or an HDMI and thunderbolt 3 display.  They CAN'T use eGPUs as of today, but they CAN use decklink cards, like the Decklink Duo2 with a thunderbolt 3 enclosure because they're not technically eGPUs.

As of this writing, NDI is only working in Rosetta.  With Pro7.5, NDI is native to Apple Silicon Macs.

On April 20, 2021, Apple announced M1 iMacs.  They...

What Josh N. said at the end of a recent consulting call

Uncategorized Sep 18, 2020

Recently, I did a one on one consulting call with Josh N.  His church wanted to live-stream, send something different to the projectors, and send the same video from the live-stream to the nursery and lobby.

You might be thinking, "He'll need to buy a lot of equipment to do that."  


He had most of what he needed (he just needed a couple SDI to HDMI converters, but other than that, he had it all).

So, what was the problem?  

He didn't know what to hook up where.  

I took some notes and then guided him through hooking it all up and the video on this page is what he said after we were done.

If you'd like to learn more about live video production, ProPresenter, and live-streaming, you can either book one on one time with me or click here to find out more about joining ChurchTechU, my online church tech training community.

The unshakeable truth about the future...this too shall pass

Uncategorized Sep 02, 2020

I have a member of my extended family who MIGHT have COVID.  She's not in great health, so this MIGHT be a very bad thing, but...

We'll get through it.

Remember what they say, "This too shall pass."  

That's the good news of our situation AND the bad news.  Whatever is happening will change.

Happily, as a person of faith, I know how it ends.  Whether it gets worse before it gets better or it gets better, the future will eventually get better.

So, this is a quick message to say, hold on, no matter what your situation.  Some day, we'll be able to tell everyone about how bad 2020 was, just as those in 1920 could tell how bad 1918 was.
