Minimum Recommended Connection
If at all possible, use Wi-Fi when available; however broadcasting will work over strong 3G, 4G, and cellular connections – though sometimes this may result in a lower quality video. On PCs, we recommend having an upload connection of at least 1 Mb or higher. You can test your upload speed with services like speedtest.net. You may be able to use slower connection but the video quality may lag or pixelate for your viewers.

Guidelines for Streaming
Here are a few guidelines for broadcasting set to ensure that Day of Prayer is done both professionally and with the appropriate reverence that reflects our Orthodox faith:
Lighting: Be sure to operate under the best lighting conditions possible, if using candlelight position camera to get the best illumination possible. It would be good to have another student monitor the broadcast on another device at least initially by viewing it on the OCF website.
Camera Positioning: This is an event made with the intention of fostering our faith’s value of community. Therefore, those of us watching want to be able to see your entire chapter praying together. Make sure to position your recording device in a way that as much of your group is in the shot as possible.
Appropriate Dress: Please remember that this is an event sponsored by OCF and therefore also sponsored by the Orthodox Church. While your Sunday best is not necessary, please dress somewhat conservatively for this event. Avoid clothing that is either too revealing or with inappropriate graphics. When in doubt, ask yourself this question: “Would I feel comfortable wearing this at a church event?”
As previously stated this is a staple OCF event of which we are extremely proud. There’s something about the idea of students around the country all praying together for a day that gets people excited. Please help maintain the loving and communal nature of this event by approaching this period of prayer with the appropriate respect and reverence that Christ and the church request of us.
