PLEASE - Multiple display options
I've seen a few requests for support for more than one display other than the control monitor and the lyrics display. This is my plea, along with an attempt to explain why, and to offer my assistance beta testing such a feature should you decide it rises to that level.
At our facility we have two screens on either side of the front of the sanctuary that we use for displaying the lyrics for the congregation, and of course images and video's a powerpoints from time to time.
Frequently, we have had occasion to have one thing displayed on one monitor up front (lyrics) and another on the other one up front. (maybe a video that goes with the song or some such thing.)
As you know, we can only send ONE item to the output screen at present, so if we need to do what I described, we make use of a second computer. That is very inconvenient, but we do get by.
The vision that we have, is to be able to have TWO VIEWS of the lyrics that we can project. One for the congregation that just shows the lyrics, we'd show that on the front screen(s). The second would show the lyrics, along with the verse numbers, a little box in the upper right with the time, and at the bottom of the screen the stage personnel would see the first line of the next slide, in order to keep everyone up on what is next.
Having the eyes of the stage personnel up, either looking at the congregation or the screen at the back, has an amazing and noticeable impact on the involvement of the rest of the congregation - when compared to the same scenario, but with the stage personnel looking at a music stand, or a monitor on a seat in the front row.
And while I'm asking, it would be so awesome to have the option to display the CCLI and copyright info on just the last slide of a song instead of all of them. That would give us more screen "real estate" for the lyrics, which is always good for the more experienced members of the congregation. (older folks, wink!)
Thanks for any input and others feel free to chime in.
All for His Glory!
