OMPT Announces New Camera

Hardware Update

After extensive research and testing, OMPT has selected the Canon Vixia HF R700 as its new dedicated camera model. We recently had the opportunity to test this new camera in the field at an Ebola prevention project in Liberia alongside the World Health Organization (WHO). The cameras were a hit and WHO produced over 30 videos! You can read all about it in OMPT’s press release.

World Interfaith Harmony Week February 1 – 7

Today concludes the United Nations’ observance of World Interfaith Harmony Week. The UN General Assembly adopted a resolution on Oct. 20, 2010 proclaiming World Interfaith Harmony Week to emphasize the need for interreligious understanding and dialogue. The goal of this past week was to promote mutual peace between all people, regardless of their religion. The UN encouraged that the message of support and unity be spread throughout all places of worship.
