How do you get content to your TVs?
CTO and Founder Kevin Smith invented Playlister while working at his church in Indiana. Kevin’s church had ten classrooms and installed complicated AV equipment and ProPresenter on all the TVs. Kevin saw firsthand the pain of the set up, difficulty getting content to each screen and the equipment cost and thought there had to be a better way.
How Playlister was born
Kevin built a simple Apple TV app that replaced all the complicated tech in each room with a small Apple TV. With the Apple TV app, Kevin’s church had a better solution in each room, and it cost way less to implement on all the TVs. The bonus was that the Apple TV app synced content instantly and took 30 seconds to train staff and volunteers on how to use it. Kevin then showed his idea to his creative partner, Grant Glas.
Made for the classroom
Grant is the CEO of Playlister and a former substitute teacher. As a building sub at a local Indiana public school, Grant went into a new grade level daily. He understood what it was like to teach a room full of 25 elementary-age kids. It’s stressful, and the curriculum and technology must work well for the day to be fun! Grant instantly saw the value teachers, volunteers, and pastors would gain from a powerful yet simple solution like Playlister. He decided to call the church down the street, and a week later, they installed Playlister. Since then, Playlister has gone to over 10,000 churches in three years.
Set up every screen in your Church in 5 minutes
You can put it in Classrooms
Use Playlister to teach kids ministry, small groups, and other content during class time. Afterwards, switch the displays to a signage loop. Stream the service to your small group spaces and then jump right into your videos without switching apps or channels.
You can put it in Overflow / Cry rooms
Stream your service to the extra rooms in your church so that attendees don’t miss a thing. Make sure they get important messages with signage by scheduling when the stream flips into a looping signage playlist when it’s over.
You can put it in Hallway Displays
Keep a signage loop going throughout the week and switch to your service streams on a specified schedule. No human interaction is needed and no SDI cabling is required :-)
