Subtitle The Solution: Overview
Subtitle The Solution: Overview A Desire2Learn® Capture solution consists of 2 major components: 1.Capture Station(s) Station 400 (hardware and software) Capture Desktop Software (software only) 2.Capture Portal Hosting (on cloud) Server Software (on-premise)
Subtitle Capture: Station 400 Complete hardware and software solution Designed for equipping rooms with dedicated stations, or deployment on a media cart Uses H.264 video codec (high quality, low bitrate) A/V inputs built into the back of the station (1 video, 1 audio, 1 VGA screen) Stations can be automated, using web scheduler Capture Station 400
Subtitle Capture: Software Use cases: 1.Personal version = optimized for capture on laptop. 2.Pro version = create your own Capture Station 400, with automation capability. Screen sharing options: Can capture local desktop, upload PPT, or capture external screen source with Epiphan device. A/V: Anything Flash-supported, usually USB webcam/mic if using a laptop. Output: Also supports high-quality h.264 codec. Capture Software
Subtitle Screen Sharing Capture Station: Screen is captured through VGA cable. Any external screen source with a VGA output can be captured (e.g. doc camera, projector…) Capture Software: – Screen is captured through local desktop capture, or can present a PPT/DOC/PDF file. – External screen source can captured through third-party Epiphan device (e.g. VGA2USB, DVI2USB). Recorded output: 1.Images mode: Best when presenting static content (e.g. PPT slides), as it creates a great Table of Contents with slide previews for on-demand viewing. 2.Video mode: Best for presenting continuous animation or video clips.
Subtitle New: Web Capture add-on Lightweight, web-based version of our Capture software Instructor can be given URL to launch Web Capture in their browser (cross-platform), and use their webcam and a PPT file to conduct a webcast or recording. Great for cases where instructor does not have access to Capture Station / Software (e.g. remote)
Subtitle Capture: Uploader Application Can use Uploader application to publish externally-created videos to a Capture Portal. Videos must be in H.264 format (mp4/f4v). Post-production editor may be used to upload and synchronize PowerPoint files.
