CaptureLiveHD™ Provides a Simple and Affordable Way to Record, Publish and View Lectures Online from Anywhere, Anytime
At InfoComm® 2012 in Las Vegas, Crestron will showcase CaptureLiveHD™, its new simple, affordable high-definition lecture capture and live streaming solution. CaptureLiveHD provides faculty and presenters with a simple to use one-button solution to schedule, record, publish online, and view lectures, presentations and medical procedures. CaptureLiveHD is smartly designed as a complete yet practical meeting and lecture capture solution that’s easy for the entire faculty to use, and offers lower cost of ownership since there are no regular service fees. The budget-friendly solution permits wide-scale deployment across any sized campus or corporate environment. Students and staff can now view live streaming or recorded presentations and lecture series in true high-definition from wherever and whenever they choose, including from popular mobile devices or a laptop.
The complete CaptureLiveHD solution simplifies the process of scheduling, recording and publishing lectures. Schedule a session (class or meeting) in any room using the Fusion RV™ room scheduling software or a laptop using applications such as Outlook®, Lotus Notes®, or R25®. Simply schedule the room for a single meeting or a whole semester of classes and Fusion RV automatically prepares the room and sends details about the session to the Capture HD recorder.
At the beginning of the session, the instructor or presenter can start recording by pressing the RECORD button on the Capture HD device or touch screen in the room. When the instructor stops recording at the end of the session, the file uploads automatically to a network server, allowing seamless distribution of the content to various devices and network speeds.
Smartly designed for easy installation and operation, the CaptureLiveHD system includes the Capture HD™ High-Definition Capture Recorder, CAPTURE-TPMC-4SM Touch Screen Controller which is also used as a confidence monitor, allowing the presenter to see him/herself to assure they are in the frame, a choice of Sony PTZ, and Sony Compact HD video cameras, and Fusion RV™ remote asset management software to centrally monitor and manage room scheduling, AV presentation and video conferencing resources from the help desk.
Organizations have the option of purchasing Capture HD High-Definition Capture Recorder as a standalone solution featuring a compact all-in-one design. Capture HD eliminates the need for a control system or multiple components such as a video window processor, video switcher and splitter, and microphone mixer, making installation simple. Instructors or presenters simply insert a USB stick into the device, press the RECORD button and walk away with a complete high-definition lecture in hand at the end of the class.
“Lecture capture devices today consist of either very expensive and complex models, which many schools cannot afford with their tightening budgets, or very low-end models that are awkward to use and don’t provide the flexibility large organizations require,” said Sean Goldstein, Crestron VP of Marketing. “CaptureLiveHD handles the whole process for you, it’s versatile and affordable, and provides the power to meet the digital content distribution needs of any size institution.”
To see CaptureLiveHD in action, visit Crestron at InfoComm 2012, June 13-15 in Las Vegas – Las Vegas Convention Center, Central Hall, Booth #C7508.
