Enriching content capture in every teaching space

Miris Netcapture from UbiCast integrates with Sony’s Vision Exchange to create a flexible, scalable and cost-effective networked lecture capture solution. Interactive content such as mirrored imagery, annotations and digital whiteboard content streamed from Vision Exchange is recorded centrally and indexed by Miris Netcapture, before transfer to MediaServer for editing and distribution. With no need for separate recording hardware in individual classrooms or lecture theatres, it’s a uniquely cost-effective solution that brings content capture into every teaching space. Enhancing the value of content compared with conventional single-camera capture, High Definition AV content can be recorded from six different sources simultaneously, including the presentation itself plus separate videos of the teacher and student’s questions and answers.

Quicker, lower cost content creation

Traditionally, creating online video content has demanded the use of specialist production and editing resources. UbiCast reduces the cost and complexity of creating high quality video without compromising on quality, with features like auto-tracking to keep your presenter tightly framed in shot, plus dynamic production and automated branding.

Add interactivity for extra engagement

While Sony’s Vision Exchange allows students and teachers to wirelessly share and annotate content from their laptop, smartphone or tablet devices to the front of a classroom, Miris Netcapture records all interactivity in the classroom over the network. With UbiCast MediaServer it’s easy to make rich media video content more engaging by adding another interactive element for online learners like time-based comments, links and quizzes – there’s even a search engine that leverages advanced OCR (Optical Character Recognition) to find specific information. It’s ideal for teaching and training applications to ensure that students have absorbed and understood course materials.

Share content the way you want to

Distribute completed video content through any channel. Share via USB drive, live streaming or FTP file transfer. Content can also be uploaded directly to MediaServer – the smart, secure and scalable video streaming platform that can be deployed on site or in the cloud.
