Adjusting to life with covid 19 is something we are now excepting as the new normal that we have to deal with for some time yet, part of out initial preparation, was to provide live streaming from our funeral home, which we were innovative and ahead of most, who didn’t have this facility, so we helped them out by not just live streaming funeral services, but also volunteering to broadcast religious ceremonies on Sunday’s and other religious events, which proved very popular and helped to bring these services and our funerals into households who would otherwise have had no access. We believed this was our way of adjusting and helping to improve our services rather than cutting back, helping in a crisis rather than adding to it.
As time passed some of the churches we serve decided to install their own systems however On a few occasions these systems failed to operate and therefore leaving our families with no recording and anyone who couldn’t travel were left unable to view.
Our internet is fast broadband, so our viewers had excellent quality picture and sound and it was reliable, something we found was lacking in some remote systems installed in different areas in which we needed to broadcast and so we set about solving this,
Thomas Bourke, funeral director here in Grey’s and director of Premier AV Productions quickly produced a serious solution, which means we can now offer the same crystal clear picture and sound from a remote location, as we can from our funeral home, offering our families a serious live stream service, with very easy access from our own web site and the ability to replay and review at a later time. This is something we are extremely proud of here in Grey’s and believe this is a serious step forward, and we thank Thomas Bourke for his expertise in helping us, respecting tradition, with regard for change.
