Stream­lin­ing your Corps’ media needs.

We believe that pre­sen­ta­tion of media is an impor­tant aspect to many church ser­vices. There are many media related needs that Corps run into every week — one Sun­day you might want to play a clip from a DVD and the next you might have a guest speaker with their own pre­sen­ta­tion needs. We under­stand the flex­i­ble nature of a wor­ship ser­vices, and that it’s frus­trat­ing when time and resources are lack­ing to co-​ordinate all of those needs.

That’s where the CMD Media Machine comes in. We’ve designed this machine to address those needs in one con­ve­nient, easy to use pack­age. We’ve cho­sen the best pre­sen­ta­tion hard­ware and soft­ware that will han­dle any­thing thrown at it. Plus, with the CMD Media Hub, you’ll have access to tons of great cre­ative new media, ready to use out of the box.

Even though this is a pow­er­ful pack­age with lots of fea­tures, it couldn’t be eas­ier to use. With the train­ing resources avail­able and one-​on-​one sup­port from the CMD team, you’ll be up and run­ning in no time at all.

It runs on the Mac.

We’ve cho­sen the Mac oper­at­ing sys­tem for a few rea­sons, but mainly because it’s incred­i­bly easy to use. All of your videos, images and music are eas­ily access­able and work straight out of the box. As well as that, the pre­sen­ta­tion soft­ware and apps we’ve tested run a whole lot smoother on the Mac. If you’ve never used a Mac before, there’s noth­ing to worry about — it’s not as scary as it sounds and we’ll help you pick it up.

Fea­tur­ing ProPresenter.

We’ve come a long way from OHP’s. Now, with data pro­jec­tors and
com­put­ers, we can choose from a wide vari­ety of soft­ware pack­ages that can pro­duce and dis­play media. Pro­P­re­sen­ter made the top of our list and we think you’ll enjoy the same things we did — excel­lent func­tion­al­ity, speed and ease of use. Plus, all of your old Pow­er­point pre­sen­ta­tions work seam­less­ley within the Pro­P­re­sen­ter envi­ron­ment.

We’ve been using this soft­ware for Ter­ri­to­r­ial events since 2010.

CMD Media Hub.

We have some pretty cre­ative peo­ple around our Ter­ri­tory. Some of them
cre­ate graph­ics that can be used as back­grounds and in pre­sen­ta­tions; some of them even cre­ate videos that are great for open­ing a ser­vice or illus­trat­ing
ser­mons. Your media machine will have access to all of these cre­ative gems and more — plus we’ll update and add new con­tent all the time.

You’ll like this: Our media machines come loaded with the entire Sal­va­tion Army song­book ready to go — so there’s no more need to type out your favourite tunes.

Ter­ri­to­r­ial Promos.

Events are hap­pen­ing all the time in The Sal­va­tion Army, and there’s always pro­mo­tional slides and videos to go with them. These will appear and dis­ap­per from your machine with­out you hav­ing to do a thing. All you have to do is click and play.

Sys­tem Require­ments and Fre­quently Asked Questions:

What does my Corps need to run a Media Machine?
The Media Machine requires three things to func­tion prop­erly. The first is a reali­able broad­band con­nec­tion (either wire­less or hard­wired) for sup­port and update pur­poses.

The sec­ond is a com­puter mon­i­tor with a DVI or HDMI input con­nec­tion.

Lastly, you’ll need a pro­jec­tor with a VGA, DVI or HDMI input connection.
