Mediasite

Automated Recording Solutions

Many on-campus lecture halls, conference rooms, and other facilities are equipped with Mediasite recorder appliances or have Mediasite Catch capture software installed on the room's PC to enable automated, schedule-based recording using Mediasite. Both the hardware solution and the software solution enable seamless, hassle-free lecture capture, where the finished recordings are automatically uploaded to Mediasite and available within minutes for instructors to use within their Canvas course, and for others to easily share their presentation online.

Mediasite Recorder Appliances

Mediasite Recorder ApplianceAs a hardware-based solution, these devices interface Mediasite with in-room audio-visual and control systems to enable powerful automation of rich media capture. Recorders can be scheduled to automatically record the same content projected to the audience in attendance, as well as capture video of the presenter and the audio from the presenter's microphone.

Mediasite Catch

Mediasite Catch tray iconAn economical, software-based alternative to a full-featured recorder appliance, Mediasite Catch is installed on the dedicated computer in many rooms. The Catch application can be scheduled to automatically record the computer's desktop, microphone input, and a connected camera, if present.

Be aware, however, that as a PC-based solution, Catch has a few limitations when compared to the hardware-based solution. Catch is unable to record other external devices that may exist in the room, such a document camera, DVD player, or a laptop you bring with you and connect to the room's audio-visual system. Catch will record the computer's microphone input, but it will not record any sound that is output from the computer. Finally, two applications cannot use the camera device at the same time, so if you are recording the camera in Mediasite Catch, you will be unable to use the camera in other applications like Zoom, and vice versa. For most use cases, these limitations are of no concern, but they should be considered.

No Schedule? No Problem!
