Welcome to The Block!
Our September issue is jam-packed! We've got a revolutionary new product coming soon, an in-depth Sites demo and blog post, an audio-focused podcast, and fresh updates to our Streaming Dashboard. We've also included highlights from our company-wide meeting and a sneak peek at our calendar. And of course, some extras for you to read and watch.
You Heard It Here First...

Building a new website can be challenging, but with Sites, it doesn't have to be. Check out our new demo video as Gary, the BoxCast Podcast host, interviews one of our developers and does a deep dive into everything Sites!
Does Your Website Need a Refresh?
Like your favorite pair of JNCOs in high school, websites go out of style. More importantly, they become at risk for safety issues. Check out our new blog post explaining why you should update your website often.
Learning Audio the Right Way with James Attaway
James Attaway, aka Sound Ninja, is the founder of Attaway Audio and Worship Sound Wisdom University. In this episode, James chimes in with his thoughts on learning audio the right way — and why it’s more about people than presentation. We cover the best ways to simplify audio concepts that are crucial to training and development.
James’s goal is to help people carve a clear path to take their churches’ sound teams to the next level. He does this by showing folks how to eliminate distractions and make every worship mix enjoyable. Check out Attaway Audio’s website and give them a follow on Facebook and YouTube!
BoxCast Team Gathers
We had our quarterly company-wide meeting in August. BoxCast employees across multiple states gathered to celebrate the release of Sites and plan for what's coming next. We are thrilled to be progressing towards our goal of expanding from a streaming platform to a powerful engagement and outreach platform that empowers you to reach a broader audience. Thank you for letting us partner with you!
New Streaming Dashboard Updates Are Live!
We released two new updates to the BoxCast Streaming Platform. The first added a rich text editor to the Broadcast Details page, so you can now add links, change up your font, and much more in your broadcast description.
Second, our Trimming feature received major love and serious upgrades.
- You can now view the broadcast in the same window while you're making edits
- We've implemented a more precise trim for broadcasts sent from a BoxCast encoder
- You can enter time stamps instead of having to use the scrubbing feature
- And more!
We're Coming to Colorado!
We are thrilled to announce that BoxCast will be attending the Churchfront Live Conference on October 17-18 in Littleton, CO. This two-day event is focused on bringing together leaders in worship and production, and we are a proud sponsor. If you plan on attending, please take a moment to visit our booth and say hi!
Here's what we've been reading, creating, and watching this month:
