Once you know what you would like to communicate with the people you work among, MediaWorks can support you with ideas of how best to share it and which channels to use. We also help navigate copyrights and licensing so you can use what is already out there and share your original content.
“No place was too hard, no people too far, no idea too crazy, no dream too big...”
– OM, Our Story
We are creating a new digital tool, which equips ministries with their own platforms where they can share curated, contextualised media in the language and culture of specific communities.
To distribute our publications more widely, MediaWorks creates eBooks and audio resources for download.
We offer set up, programming and training in BibleBox, ConnectBox, Lightstream. Battery or line powered, Connect Boxes are localised Wi-Fi hotspots. They enable individuals to access and download or stream Christian media by mobile phone without an internet connection — an advantage in remote areas.
We provide SD Card/CD/DVD duplication.
We support you in phone to phone sharing and mobile app development.
Our web developers are able to help build websites and support with hosting.
MediaWorks is building a digital tool called LightNet that will enable ministries and churches to create tailor-made apps and websites (webapps*) within as little as an hour. The webapps will serve as platforms to share curated Christian media that engages with specific people groups.
Alongside the creation of webapps, LightNet will provide ministry teams with a place to catalogue their unique media library and manage permissions, access rights and licensing. Over time, we will add functionality so that ministries can share media with each other, allowing access to a rich media library network.
With the new digital tool, we want to simplify creating webapps, lower maintenance costs and bundle hard-to-find (and expensive) software craftsmanship between ministries. Webapps created with LightNet can operate offline, work on mobile phones, function as a mobile app, are fast, support multiple languages, and support flexible media and content types.
*Known as a Progressive Web Application, which is a website with extra functionality such as offline capabilities and an icon on your mobile home screen.
“Our vision is to share the gospel using the technology people have in their hands, offer training in how to do this and provide digital content in people’s heart languages.”
