UD Capture–Classroom Recording
UD Capture is an automatic classroom capture system that records traditional classroom meetings for on-line use. It is easy to use and benefits both faculty members and students. There is no extra setup or new equipment to learn. The capture appliances behind the scenes will record automatically according to your class schedule. Remember, you’re not on camera. UD Capture records the visuals from your projected laptop or optional document camera and the audio from the room. Just come and teach your class like usual!
Video conferencing enables two or more sites to have a collaborative meeting face-to-face with participants at a distance. Cameras and microphones are used at each site to send the pictures and sound of participants to each other in real time. The result is a meeting that can occur anywhere in the world without the expense of traveling.
ATS offers full-service, room-based facilities with a personal technician to handle all technical details; self-service facilities that are easily operated through a push-button control panel, remote control, and keyboard; and a bridging service that will bring together up to 12 sites simultaneously. We also provide support for desktop conferencing programs such as Canvas Conferencing, Google Hangouts, Skype, and Zoom.
We offer a variety of solutions to meet your video needs. Studio recordings with a dedicated technician are available free of charge for UD credit courses. We also support a number of computer screen capture recording software options, and provide hosting services for your personal course video archives.
