I received a notice in my inbox this morning that Media Shout Version 5 is being released. Now personally, after over 15 years of worship ministry, I am a big fan of using ProPresenter over MediaShout, even though we are dealers for both. However, there are some advantages to using MediaShout. They are promoting some great new features that made me take a second look and so should you. Here are some of the features that stood out to me:
- More user-friendly
- Integration with Planning Center and CCLI
- 65 Bible Versions included (ProPresenter makes you purchase these separate)
- 3 licenses with purchase (ProPresenter will let you do 2 licenses but you can't use them at the same time)
- Better editing platform including drag and drop
Go check it our HERE and see for yourself. The upgrade price to this new version is $219 and the new purchase price is $399.
BUT WAIT...Thats not all. I go over to ProPresenter's website and BEHOLD, they have released a CLOUD version...Wha...? Is that their answer to MediaShout 5? This is a great idea! At our church, the media person works on ProPresenter at home then brings up her thumb drive on Sunday mornings with everything on it. This new cloud version could be a great solution for us and for other churches that have volunteers setting up their presentations. Monthly plans start at $12.
Either way you go, both of these programs are easy to use and great for presentations. How do you pick? You need to decide what is best for your church, what are your needs? Who is setting up and running your presentations? Is it a paid staff person or a volunteer? It's always about the people and making Sunday mornings as stress-free as possible. I will do a more complete review on both products very soon.
If you need any help with recommendations, if you want to purchase the software or need training, CALL US. We are direct dealers for both products and will put together a package price with set-up and training. 479-459-3176
