What is core?

Core is an end-to-end solution for churches and communities across the globe that allows streaming worship services and events such as weddings, conferences, outreaches, baptisms, funerals or other gatherings to multiple social media platforms like Facebook, YouTube Live or to church websites — for congregants, remote campuses and remote teams to watch online from their homes or even other countries.
Why do you need Core?

Why do you need

2020 will be remembered as a year when the world has embraced remote participation at a new level, and this is even more so for churches with the physical presence restrictions in place for public worship services and other events. Since the outbreak of COVID-19 practically every government has issued safety guidance for communities, and specifically for places of worship and religious gatherings promoting protective measures for staff and congregants (US, UK, AUS). As a result, more and more churches across the world have deployed broadcast solutions to connect with their congregants, remote campuses and international teams and partners using live video.

What do you gain by using Core?
