Pros: This software is great for churches and offers a great deal of flexibility. Media shout adapts well to other imported templates, too.

Cons: The learning curve is steep, and training someone to run the presentation is almost as difficult as it is to learn how to create a presentation. The framework is just not intuitive

Pros: The esthetics of this software are phenomenal! It presents a great picture behind the words and makes for wonderful presentations.

Cons: The cost is difficult to pull off up front for a non-profit organization who relies on donors and discloses all expenditures.

Pros: As churches started using projection more and more MediaShout was there to offer a great option that was not PowerPoint. They've been in the business and have learned a lot over the years. There are many features that allow you to customize your cues.

Cons: With all the customization the workflow can get confusing and not user friendly. The way to add, remove, and select cues and media is not very intuitive if you have been on a Mac for a while. It is clear that MediaShout is a Windows based program though they offer Mac. They offer a site license for an additional fee.

This product is good but for the money there are better systems available.

Pros: I am trying to find something good to say...umm it was easy to install and the Mediashout startup screen is pretty.

Cons: Hard to use, clunky, crashes often, not compatible with powerpoint as stated, not intuitive, cannot access help unless online (no help button), email help is slow, phone support only available during hours when no one is at church. Have to pay additional for any artwork, backgrounds. Powerpoint is 1000X better than this software.

Overall: none

Comments: I've had experience using several different media presentation software platforms, and Media Shout ranks right up there as one of the best. The user interface is good, though it does take some time to learn your way around. Overall, the software is reliable, which is extremely valuable on Sunday mornings during worship.

Great Product, but can be tricky at times

Comments: We've used MediaShout at our church for about 6 years now. We've been with it through multiple updates, and overall, I'd say the features and functionality are trending upwards. There is quite a learning curve on the software, mostly due to the quirky-feeling way of setting things up. Once you understand the process, setting up a show, or prepping for an event goes pretty smoothly. However, not everything is as intuitive as it could be. Overall, I'd recommend it for a medium sized church or presentation (100-300 people). Be sure to look up the community input when it comes to quirks or issues you aren't sure how to resolve. You'll probably be able to find more specific input regarding your unique situation through that route than through the official support.

Comments: If you're looking for something affordable and convenient, Media Shout is for you. It's not the top of the line, and I wouldn't recommend it first, but it gets the job done.

Pros: Powerful software full of options and will work in whatever environment you throw it in.

Cons: All the features feel all thrown together and hard to find settings.

Overall: Mediashout is a great software! it has everything a projectionist needs plus more. There is alot of options and it kinda feels all thrown together. but it has the features and thats all I care about. haven't had any issues yet!

Recommendations to other buyers: if you are choosing between mediashout or easyworship- mediashout is the way to go!
