Parsons

Zoom Wall

Leading the way in innovation is what H.Parsons does.  We’ve embraced technology and introduced the Parsons’ Zoom Wall for our families to access.

 

The Parsons’ Zoom Wall allows all family members and friends to be a part of the service, no matter where their location.

The Parsons Zoom Wall is interactive technology which allows people attending the Wollongong Chapel to connect with everyone who has logged in via Zoom. Family members and friends attending remotely appear on the Zoom Wall and can talk, smile and wave to the attendees in the Chapel.

Remote eulogies or personal messages can be delivered allowing everyone to be a part of service. 

The Parsons’ Zoom Wall is 7m x 2.5m and will display images of everyone who has logged in.  

 

Its features include:

  • Connectivity from anywhere in the world

  • Ability for all guests to talk with each other, either at home or in the chapel.  

  • Ability to give a remote eulogy or speech 

  • Talk with friends and family at the service

  • Live interactive images of friends and families on the Parsons’ Zoom Wall brings everyone together

 

The Parsons’ Zoom Wall differs from webcasting as it is  live interactive technology and lets the people in the chapel and at home, not only see each other, but also speak with each other. Webcasting is a one way medium.  Remote attendees can view and hear the service but they are not able to be seen or interact with attendees in the chapel.  

 

Ease of use

Connecting to the Parsons Zoom Wall is very straightforward.  Our team will provide you with an online link providing you with access to the service. The link can be published on Funeral Announcement.com.au. The link will guide you to download the program/app and our Funeral Director will manually allow people to join the service. Once you are able to see the service, those attending will be able to see and hear you.

What If I Don't Want To Be Seen Or Heard?

If you prefer to not be seen or heard, you can control this from your own device by disabling your camera or microphone, or both. Just click on the camera or microphone icons and they will be switched off, however you will still be able to view and hear the service. Before you join, Zoom will also ask you about using your camera and microphone.

Our Funeral Director is able to mute or disable the video of all people attending. If you are having trouble, please make it known to our Funeral Director.

In most cases, those attending via the Zoom Wall will be muted by our Funeral Director. This is to ensure that no one accidentally interrupts the service. Once the service concludes our Funeral Director is able to un-mute everyone so that they can chat with each other.
