Our office can’t thank you enough for assisting and helping us during this trying time as we all cope with COVID-19. We purchased our two Teradek Backpacks at the cusp of the pandemic and they have proven indispensable in our every day coverage of press conferences that have included our mayor, the city’s health department, Chicago Public Schools and even announcements from the governors office. These units have been work horses, along with Core, making our coverage of these events easy to do with great reliability. It is also appreciated that all of you realized the importance of our mission of getting important information out to the public by monitoring our transmissions to ensure that our streams didn’t falter. Also, the “dudes” of Streamdudes, John and Kris, have been an integral part of our purchase and support and we appreciate all of the attention that they have given us, as well, to make every aspect of our work involving our Teradek’s flow smoothly. Our paths crossed at the right time and we felt that this thank you was well deserved. Keep safe and healthy!David Weinstein

John and Kris have been a blessing to the newly formed Chiefs Media in McCormick, SC! They got us streaming when we thought we’d exhausted all our resources. In the middle of the Corona Virus shutdown we now have options for streaming important information. Kris and John, thank you for your knowledge and your patience!Victoria Aleck-Gumbiner

Well, this Coronavirus thing has created quite a crazy time. I was told at the last minute that our board needed to do an emergency board meeting but wanted to do it remotely. Not a huge deal except for all of the legal ramifications and requirements. It had to be streamed to the public and allow for citizens comments all being remote. I knew I couldn’t do it through vMix alone so finally came up with the plan of doing a Zoom meeting where people would be placed in a meeting room until allowed in. Brought that into vMix NDI from a laptop and was able to modify my multi-views and run my timers etc. all went off without a hitch. Was able to record and stream to 2 different locations and only reached 40% total CPU.
Thank you for all of your support over the years. You made me look pretty amazing and pull off something no one thought possible.Mark Pace

“I’ve been producing content for years and I’ve never had a more efficient or user-friendly setup than what Stream Dudes has provided,” stated “esquire on fire” herself, Jennifer Bukowsky. “No longer do we have to manage point-to-point connections, the NDI workflow and BirdDog equipment have given us the ability/flexibility to access our cameras & graphics anywhere across our network!”Jennifer Bukowsky

The process of upgrading our church’s video equipment was a long journey, and I am so happy that Stream Dudes was on that journey with us. Due to many factors outside our control, it took about six months from initial inquiry to having everything installed. During this entire period John and Kris were always quick to answer a question. They were always supportive and patient when we ran into another delay. I am extremely satisfied with the products they recommended and curated for our project. They were happy to give advice but never gave a “hard sell.” Even when we had some hiccups following the installation they were able to guide me to solutions, and I have the upmost confidence I can rely on them for anything that ever pops up. Stream Dudes are true professionals, and I would hire them again in a heartbeat.
