- Newly re-branded Piksel Faith combines the company's Piksel 316 Networks and Piksel Streaming Faith brands to deliver the Digital Church ecosystem
- Enables houses of worship to grow their congregations online with powerful on-demand video and live streaming services
- Harnesses the flexible Piksel Video Platform to manage and share content to any mobile device, anywhere
Piksel, a global provider of video monetization software and solutions, today announced the launch of Piksel Faith, a new division that enables churches to grow and expand their ministries beyond their four walls by harnessing powerful live-streamed and pre-recorded videos of their services.
Piksel Faith combines the company's former brands -- Piksel 316 Networks and Piksel Streaming Faith -- and builds upon Piksel's dozen years' experience in empowering faith communities to use video to reach people with spiritual content. This new division leverages Piksel's rich heritage helping churches forge effective digital strategies, manage technical complexities, and chart more secure digital futures in a world that is increasingly online oriented.
According to a recent report by the Barna Group, technology is significantly impacting the way today's Christian Millennials obtain religious content and connect with their churches. The report says that 7 out of 10 Christian Millennials read scripture on a screen, and 6 out of 10 practicing Christians search for spiritual content online. Piksel Faith takes advantage of this growing opportunity for pastors, churches, and ministries to connect with more people and help them grow the reach and return of their church. By implementing the shared digital solutions of the Digital Church, Piksel Faith delivers a technological and strategic response to the growing needs of ministries for online content.
Alan Riley, Vice President of Sales, Piksel Faith, commented: "Houses of worship are continually looking to simplify the delivery of their message while trying to expand their reach and offer a better service. Piksel Faith enables them to meet both of these challenges head-on with a unique strategy that combines our market expertise with our end-to-end solutions. Through live streaming, video on demand, mobile, smart television apps, and 24/7 broadcast channels, churches can deepen their connection to people, reach a broader audience, and expand their mission online."
At the heart of Piksel Faith's Digital Church ecosystem is the Piksel Video Platform, which manages and broadcasts streaming and on-demand video to any device via an intuitive interface and easy-to-use player. In the past six months alone, the Piksel Video Platform streamed 3 billion views, over 30,000 live events, and experienced 99.975% uptime. In addition to live-streamed and archived video, the Digital Church enhances the message and the mission of churches through a menu of options including podcasts, mobile apps, a Roku app, and digital signage.
Riley continued, "We're excited for the future of helping houses of worship cast wider nets and grow their congregations. We've got great plans in store to support our existing customers and develop new ones."
Meet Alan Riley and the team from Piksel Faith at WFX 2014 in Dallas, TX from Sept. 30-Oct. 2.

We all know the latest numbers: Gartner, Inc. forecasts that 6.4 billion connected things will be in use worldwide in 2016, up 30 percent from last year, and will reach 20.8 billion by 2020. We're rapidly approaching a data production of 40 zettabytes a day – more than we can every physically store, and exabytes and yottabytes are just around the corner. For many that’s a good sign, as data has been proven to equal money – IF it’s ingested, integrated, and analyzed fast enough. Without real-ti...

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
