By using the mature VB6 technology the Beamer core runs extreme stable, and everything you can do once you can do always. Errors (like segmentation faults) which appear after some time of usage can be completely avoided (except those which might be caused theoretically by the third-parties extensions on which Beamer has no influence). In other presentation programs which are written in C or C++ a single small bug can cause such errors, and you never know if a new program version allows you to present a nice segmentation fault window to your church ;-)
Beamer runs also on Pention I systems with
Windows 95 at an acceptable speed.
Even if you want to present song texts with live background video, you might notice that it uses less CPU ressources than other song presentation programs with that feature do use.
How many other presentation systems do you know

in his hand and participate in worship, instead of sitting in front of
Or what about fixing typos you find when you see the song text or presentation on the wall?
And what about changing the song text language dynamically, or changing the number of currently displayed languages?
You can present your songs using a single display system, a dual display system, or two single display systems connected by LAN. Who else can do that?
