samepage-complete.gifNow, the most popular presentation software, and Collide magazine’s Best for 2007, Mediashout, comes together to directly integrate with SAMEPAGE Music.  Check em out.   This is really going to be a great partnership, for a total worship experience.   You knew eventually someone would pull it all together. This is Samepage:  Instead of three brands of music stands scattered across the platform with taped-on sheet music, a plasma screen propped in front of the front row and notes wedged into the corners of the stage monitors, someone would invent a way to put everyone on the same page. Well, they did. The Corevalus system, though complex, solves the problem and is easy to use. The company’s management team draws from a deep computer literacy and a broad commitment to worship. The result is SamePage. A host computer handles the tasks of processing and displaying music and lyrics to a group of attached flat panel displays. Each panel is about the size of a music stand. So the congregation is not forced to look through an unwieldy box, SamePage can compile a set list, display the lyrics for the vocalists, show different transpositions to each instrumentalist and add songs on the fly. The impact Corevalus will have on the worship community is immense. Just as Aviom altered the audio landscape and made personal monitoring the norm, so too, SamePage will change the way teams track their music. With SamePage, the band can instantly throw in an invitation hymn, drop a half step on a ballad and quickly download a song referenced in the sermon, Corevalus has eliminated the clutter and confusion of visualizing music by delivering a product that all future competitors will be hard pressed to meet.”   Could your church use something like this?

Whether you use Propresenter, Easyworship, Mediashout, or the 46 other companies that Churches and like-minded organizations use to display lyrics, dvd’s, and other forms of Media, now there is a way to play Youtube files as well.  Welcome to Vixy.net.vixynet.jpg You can convert them into MP3, AVI, MOV, MP4,  and 3GP now, and its a free app

If you’re like myself, a fan of youtube; a vast library of videos submitted by users, you’re probably already hooked on tools such that allows you to download the video in FLVformat to store off line. I recently realized that there are lots of inspirational and funny videos available here as well as some of which I had tried in vain to search for, easily available by keying in the song title followed by a click on the Search button.   You can even convert to MP3, which you can then play on your Ipod, or MP3 player.  What a great tool for ministry.  Have you found a site like this that has worked for you?  Share!
