Video hardware comes in an amazing array of choices. As with all your choices, first think of personnel. Are dedicated cameramen a realistic option? Can you expect one person to run a pan/tilt and a zoom along with everything else? Secondly, think of cost. Just how much better is a 'commercial camera' than a 'security camera'? Is it worth the cost? Can it be run remotely?

This site leans toward a single operator, so the use of high end security cameras with pan/tilt and no zoom pervades this section. This may not be the optimal setup if you have a large enough church to have 2 operators. Are there churches out there thinking about using 2 operators? Has someone found a reliable way to automatically set up a zoom? Do we need to break sections of this site up into small churches and large churches?

This is where we need your input.
