Lecture Capture Done Right

The incorporation of technology systems and its functions within universities has become incredibly prevalent in daily operations. This is not only because the use and reliance of technology is on the rise, but because it provides increased communication, easier and faster accessibility, and the ability for richer, more descriptive content to both the teaching staff and its students. When working with some of the most creditable universities in the country, Dobil Laboratories Inc has been using Crestron's Capture HD High-Definition Capture Recorder. We stress this particular product due to its simplicity, low cost, and incredible efficiency when transferring anything from lectures to short clips from the classroom to the fingertips of students.

The Crestron Capture-HD is very simple and easy to use. For many teachers being of the older generation, it can be hard for them to stay current with the new technologies on the market and how to use them. With this system, recording is incredibly easy and there is little training needed to be done with the staff. On the display, it shows a live image to the presenter of how they will be viewed and what information will be displayed. All they have to do is push record and when they are finished, push "end capture" for the presentation to be automatically uploaded. This can be uploaded to a USB device or sent to programs such as Blackboard. Simplicity for professors is one of the main appeals of Crestron's Capture-HD.

Another great thing regarding this device is the low cost. With great capabilities of the Capture-HD, the cost is undoubtedly fair. Being around a quarter of the price of its competitors, the low cost makes the appeal of this product even greater.

The main reason we stress this product is due to its incredible efficiency to communication information when being used within universities. With more universities going green, increasing the volume of online classes available, and providing online capabilities, the Crestron Capture-HD is a great solution. It allows for easy integration of classrooms, lecture halls, and training facilities. The high quality CaptureLive HD allows for recording of full-motion 1080p or 720p to be saved with the 32 gigs of memory for over 8 hours of recording. It allows teachers to schedule the dates of their presentations and when they are to be published. Presenters can display a wide range of content like PowerPoint, documents, and videos to their students. This allows students to view the content either in the classroom, from their mobile devices, and from their dorm rooms.
