If you work in higher or further education these days, you’ll probably have an interest in lecture capture. Universities and colleges now understand that every lecture is a valuable asset and, instead of that asset disappearing into the ether every time it’s delivered, they are using recordings of their subject experts’ presentations for remote learning and to co-operate, sell or trade with affiliate education establishments around the world.
However, the technical challenges around practical lecture capture are significant, creating a need for new camera solutions that require minimum user intervention and which can effectively replace a human camera operator. Camera manufacturer iSmart, has been creating solutions for education for many years and they are showing their new, sophisticated tracking and lecture capture camera at the BETT 2019 show on stand B225.
What makes a great Lecture Capture Camera?
As universities and colleges introduce flipped classroom and blended learning techniques, the need for a cost-effective lecture capture solution has become critical. Key to this solution is a camera that can reliably and consistently lock on and track the lecturer, accurately emulating a live camera operator.
Watch how the iSmart LTC-A2001N does this
The new iSmart LTC Series 2nd Generation HD-SDI Lecturer Tracking Camera System offers a whole host of benefits and is already being used by the top tertiary education establishments.
The LTC Series offers:
- Artificial Intelligence to provide a seamless, user-friendly experience.
- Easy set-up; it’s literally plug n’ play
- Lecturer tracking capability means no need for an operator
- Locked tracking unaffected by in-room distractions like others walking across the field of view or moving video projection
- Smooth visual performance thanks to AI face and motion detecting technology
- Works smoothly with lecture capture platforms such as Panopto, Echo 360, Galicaster/Opencast and others
Optional whiteboard detection – board-writing triggers tracking. A seperate board-writing detection camera triggers the lecturer tracking camera to move to a predefined board position and start tracking the lecturer there.
