Memories To Last A Lifetime

Today was Crestwood High School fifty-second commencement ceremony but it was like no other to say the least.  For those family members and friends who were unable to attend Spring Commencement, the Howard-Winneshiek Community School District was pleased to offer a live video stream of the ceremony. This was made possible with the partnership of JDL Horizons out of Minneapolis who assisted with providing us the set-up and equipment to make this all possible.  

Camera 1 with Sound Board
I'll be honest I had butterflies in my stomach because with technology anything is possible and knowing we were going to be reaching a wide audience from all over the world. 

Camera 2 with Video Mixer

We're "LIVE"

Yes! Its always a great feeling to see posts that we are "LIVE"  and everything is clear all the way in Wales.

Presentation of Diplomas

To manage the cameras and soundboard today we utilized CHS students who showed an interest into the media production. Today I have heard our live video stream reached TX, CA, MN, IA, and Wales. Memories that will be cherished for a lifetime.


  1. Heather,
    I wanted to do something similar with Google Hangouts and live streaming through YouTube. Does this sound feasible for a scaled-down version of what you did? Reading this made me want to get back into video production again :)
