Broadcast Recap - Mormon Channel Has Something for EveryoneA brief recap of the first LDSTech broadcast for 2015 on the Mormon Channel hardly does justice to the presentation. The presentation is a credit to media experts and LDSTech developers, who, in partnership, have brought phenomenal changes to the way broadcast technologies reach people. Presenters Rob Boshard (General Manager for the Mormon Channel) and Heidi Green (Content Strategist) likened that partnership to building a house’s infrastructure, furnishing it with content, and “turning on the lights.”

Improving Internet Access Following Meetinghouse Firewall Upgrade - Part 1Because the Internet is a shared resource, last year’s changes to meetinghouse firewall configurations affect everyone who signs in to the meetinghouse network on their Wi-Fi-enabled devices. Becoming better informed about the changes will help you improve the experience for yourself and others. This begins a two-part article on the new configuration. A second article will cover best practices.
The newest version of the firewall increases data throughput to better utilize the speed of local Internet Service Providers (ISP). The reconfiguration applies to Cisco firewalls furnished by the Church and sets up separate zones using dedicated ports. One zone is for the public network, another for facilities management, and where authorized, a special purpose or reserved zone for Family History Centers (FHC).

Connecting your mobile devices to the public network
To use your device successfully, plan ahead. Perform Internet-intensive tasks, such as downloading content, installing apps, and performing software upgrades at home. If you are planning to use web content, download and save content to your device and then use meetinghouse audio visual equipment to project from your device rather than stream directly from the Internet.
