What is an upgrade, and what is an update?
Updates to our software are released every few weeks to months (depending on the depth of the bug fixes and new features). Users who purchase MediaShout have access to all updates for that version for free. So, if you have an active license for MediaShout Version 6, updates to V6.1, V6.2, etc, will be free to you.
Upgrades are major releases that represent big improvement and change in both appearance and functionality. Users of MediaShout can purchase upgrades for a significant discount off the regular full version price.

How do I set up my external display?
What is Stage Display, and what hardware do I need if I want to use that feature?
Stage display is an additional display of song lyrics, Bible verses or text for your stage team in an easier-to-read format. MediaShout will automatically utilize foreground text or your own custom content and display full screen over black background for maximum clarity. You can also provide the first line of text of the upcoming page to this monitor as well as a countdown timer and custom messages.
Your computer will need at least 3 discrete display outputs in order to use stage display. The best way to accomplish this is with a single video card with at least 3 discrete outputs.
