WHAT’S NEW IN MEDIASHOUT 7
MediaShout 7 adds a ton of new features, capabilities, andtools to help you build faster, better-looking presentations.
Designed with both you and your pastor in mind, the neweasy-to-use Sermon Builder will allow you to make native MediaShout sermonpresentations faster and easier than PowerPoint without having to learn any ofMediaShout 7.
Similar to Volunteer Mode in V6, the new Presenter Viewallows for a quick toggle between presenting and editing. It also gives youlots of customizations for this view, including a new list view (which is areturn for V5 and earlier users).
Cues Library Plug-In
Bringing back a favorite from the Cues Deck of V5 andearlier, the new Cues Library will be the source for saving any of yourformatted Cues for later use (like Lyric Cues, Announcements, Sermon Slides,and more).
Some of our other favorite new features:
A new feature that will have lots of future growth is ourPlug-In area on the far right of the Control Screen. This allows us to provideadditional add-ons for specific controls (like Transitions, Key Objects, andmore) that not all user may need. This will let you customize your version ofMediaShout 7 for your needs.
One thing we focused on with MediaShout 7 from day one ofdevelopment was stability. We are confident that you will find MediaShout 7 tobe the most stable church presentation software in the industry. Period.Because of that focus, we have intentionally focused on making sure you have asolid service without distractions instead of tons of crazy features that causeperformance issues.
Unlike any other presentations software out there,MediaShout 7’s new Stage Display is truly a fully-customizable output for anypurpose you want. In fact, because this output is fully customizable, you candisplay a mirror of the Main Display, a variation of the Main Display(including images and videos), or even go as far as sending out a completelydifferent presentation unrelated to the Main Display!
One of the new plug-ins in 7.1 is the Scenario Plug-In whichallows you to set Timed Advance for a Cue as well as jump to any other Cue whenit ends (or loop). More tools for the Scenario Plug-In will be added soon,including the ability to fire Key Objects using this Plug-In automatically.
MediaShout 7 offers a number of Export Options, so you cancreate customizable exports into JPEG/PNG, PDF, or Text files to share withanyone on your team. And you can also print to the same type of export.
USB Remote Control
Gone are the days of the clunky Remote Control Mode. Justplug in your USB receiver, trigger the remote for MediaShout 7 to recognize,and you are done. As long as your USB receiver stays in the same port, it willalways advance your presentation without needing to do anything else (and notmess up anything you do on the keyboard).
Import of PowerPoint
With Office 2019 removing even more of the third-partytools, we have moved away from requiring PowerPoint and instead offer theability to import your PPT/PPTX file as images or even as native MediaShoutCues which give you full editing capability without needing to have or openPowerPoint at all.
