As President and founder of Zamar Media Solutions, Michael Dow has been an active proponent of improving technology in the church community. He has accomplished this by forming a Christ-based installation and consulting firm that is committed to serving the Christian community. His firm has made an exceedingly strong commitment to educating the church tech community on how to operate and use the technical systems needed by churches today.

Dow founded Zamar Sound in 1991 as a consultancy focused on helping the Church improve the technical quality of its presentation. His company has now grown to a contracting firm working with larger facilities as well as the small-church market.

2020 Workshop

Audio Visual & Media: HD Cameras & Streaming your Services

This session will show you some ideas that will greatly improve the look and consistency of your video without breaking your budget. We’ll compare using a dedicated Streaming appliance in contrast to just using a Camcorder and video capture card in a PC (that can crash). We’ll demonstrate new cost effective HD and 4K cameras both Fixed and Pan, Tilt and Zoom (PTZ) cameras with Joystick controllers and HD Video Switchers.
