    1. Regarding Skype in service, I had a long distance baby dedication via skype last year. I had an assistant hold my macbook pro by the parents so the pastor could see the child (his grandchild, btw) and I had VNC running on both the laptop and our projector computer . Then I just dragged the skype window to the screen from the desktop. I think I just put a lav mic on the laptop for the sound. The latency on the video was not good but the audio was OK. It was a former pastor and the congregation didn’t know what was going to happen so it was a nice surprise to see him up on the screen.

      There are many different programs AV companies use for inventory management. The two companies that I worked for used R2 and Intellievent. I can’t say that I’d recommend either one for a church. I wasn’t too thrilled with them when I had to work with them, and I believe they are fairly expensive.
