Video Privacy and Security

Maintain a balance between available and vulnerable.

You live stream to extend the Word to as many believers as possible, but keeping your live streams safe and uninterrupted is very important. Take advantage of security features to keep your live streams flowing without interruptions. Use referrer restrictions, advanced encryption, and other security tools to ward off the wrong viewers.
Stream Securely

Video Monetization for Donations

Allow viewers to make donations with video monetization tools.

Tithing is important and with parishioners tuning in from home, it is easier for them to donate online. Churches report a 70% increase in online donations after making live streaming services available for their viewers. Leverage our online payments tools to collect donations during streamed sermons to collect regular monthly or annual donations with the subscription on-demand model, and allow parishioners to donate for access to pay-per-view video sermons if they typically prefer to attend your services in-person.
