ATLANTA—November 9, 2018—Leading The Way, a Christian media organization led by Dr. Michael Youssef, has selected The Switch to provide video and audio connections from Atlanta to Europe, for ultimate LIVE distribution of The Church of The Apostles Sunday morning services to the Middle East and Africa through its Satellite Channel.
Specifically, The Switch will provide HD-SDI circuits from The Church of The Apostles to Leading The Way’s Global Operations Center in Atlanta, where they will add subtitles, voice-over and graphics for international distribution. Then, The Switch will transmit the signal to The Switch’s Network Operations Center in New York, where it will be further delivered to Europe via The Switch Access™. The Switch Access, The Switch’s managed broadband IP service offering, allows anyone in the world to connect to The Switch’s network, products and services. According to Leading the Way, its primary media content is currently broadcast across six different continents and in 26 different languages.
“We are pleased to utilize The Switch to spread the word of God via Satellite to remote regions in the Middle East and Africa,” said Michael Tilley of Leading The Way ministries. “Leading The Way is uniquely equipped to reach a global audience by using today’s technology to connect individuals with sound Biblical teaching.”
“The Switch Access™ extends the reach and value of The Switch’s global network and provides customers the ability to distribute their broadcasts to the most remote regions in the world,” said Keith Buckley, president and CEO of The Switch. “This is a perfect example of how The Switch can help dramatically increase the reach of global distribution for the worship community.”
Leading the Way began in 1988 with a radio broadcast and has grown to a full media organization -- broadcasting more than 13,000 times a week on television and radio. Its foundation is the Sunday service with Dr. Michael Youssef. These teachings are recorded and distributed through every major form of media.
