Have you ever been in a conference call and all that you can hear are the entry beeps. Beep, beep, beep, beep. I was on a call and for the whole duration of the call it was constantly every 2 seconds a beep.

If you want connect and communicate effectively a picture is worth 1000 words. Many times we try to look for images and the first thing people do is just to a search and then they copy the images. Even do that may be the easiest way to do it, it is not the correct way as you do not own those images. Across the years I have learn and found several
Pexels is one of my favorite websites. It provides high quality and completely free stock photos licensed under the Creative Commons Zero (CC0) license. All photos are nicely tagged, searchable and also easy to discover through our discover pages.
Morguefile is a free photo archive “for creatives, by creatives.” Founded by Michael Connors in the early Internet days of 1996, the site was created to serve as a free image exchange for creative professionals and teachers to use in their work. This same mission remains true today: we are a community-based free photo site, and all photos found in the Morguefile archive are free for you to download and re-use in your work, be it commercial or not. The photos have been contributed by a wide range of creatives from around the world, ranging from amateur photo hobbyists to professionals.
Freeimages was launched in February 2001 as an alternative for expensive stock photography. The idea was to create a site where creative people could exchange their photos for inspiration or work. The site has evolved into the massive community you see today — there are over 2,500,000 registered users and around 400,000 photos online.
Free high-resolution pictures you can use on your personal and commercial projects. Click on an image to download the high-resolution version. New awesome pictures added weekly! All pictures were photographed by Ryan McGuire and free of copyright restrictions.
StockSnap is the best place on the internet to find beautiful free stock photos. Highest resolution pictures and add them to the database on a daily basis. This is not your typical crappy stock photo site. All photos uploaded to the site are released under Creative Commons – CC0 and do not require attribution. No more hassle trying to figure out whether you can use photos for commercial use and whether you need to provide attribution.
This is a nifty website to have in your toolbox. The photos on offer are colorful and ooze quality. They have a handy list of categories and a unique “copy space” filter. What’s that? Basically, you use the filter to specify in what position you want to add text to the photo (like an article headline) and it will return results that match your request. Pretty handy, right?

In today’s changing world you have many choices. If you are hungry you can select from many different places to eat. It is the same with your technology needs. Today I will discuss the differences in projectors and how to select the appropriate projector for your church.
What is a projector?
A projector is a big TV, so you can show movies, presentations or any other audio visual material. If you want the technical definition click here.
Why do we need a projector?
Humans understand things better if we can relate them visually. How do you know where are the restrooms in a restaurant? Simple you look for the sign with a man and a woman, but how does the sign look like?
There are more than 1000 projectors in the market, ranging from $500 to $500,000 dollars in price. Which one is the correct one for my church? There are different things to consider.
Light (How much light you have in your church?)
The amount of light in your church is very important. If you want to setup the projector and there is a lot of light (day light, indoor light or any other kind of light), the projector need to have a lot of lumen. Lumen are the amount of light that projector will send out for the image, click here for information on lumen. After you check the amount of light you have, you have to count how many people you can see the screen.
Screen (Determine how many people can see the screen?)
There are many different screen sizes. In order to select the correct screen size , lets count the amount of people in your church. Amount of people x 1 inch = size of screen. Let’s say your church has 100 members your screen should be no less than 100 inches or 8 foot 3 inches long. If your church has 200 members your screen should be 150 to 200 inches or 12.5 to 16 feet long. click here for information on screen sizes.
Quality of projector
Last but not least you have to stop for a minute and think, why do we want to use a projector? Do we want to present Sunday’s service worship songs? or We want to bless the church with other audio visual material. There are many audiovisual devices that can bless the church. Movies, presentations (PowerPoint’s, Impress, others…). As I mention earlier projectors come in many different sizes and configurations that we need to know why we want to use a projector. Quality is not synonym to expensive. I own an inexpensive Infocus X1 and never had a problem. Why I selected the Infocus X1? At the time that I purchased my projector the light bulbs for all the other projectors where $500 to $600 dollars and the Infocus X1 where $250.
Things to check when you want to buy a projector:
Warranty (how many years and if they offer extended warranty).
Price for the replacement bulbs (average 3000 hours).
Celling mount or table top (are you going to mount the projector in the church celling or in a table).
Compatibility with your computer equipment (if it support Windows 2000/XP/Vista , Mac or Linux).
Support from the vendor (if the projector has a problem can they come to your church and help you).
Hope this posting will be helpful. God Bless you all.
