PTZ cameras are not like traditional camcorders. A few can record video internally to a Micro SD card, but these are the exceptions rather than the rule. Lumens, Datavideo and the high-end Panasonic PTZ Cameras (like the AW-HE130 and AW-UE150) do not have internal recording so we must look at other options. The Panasonic AW-HE38, AW-HE40, AW-HE42, and AW-UE70 can all record HD, (the UE70 can even record in UHD). This internal recording can be very useful, but it is heavily compressed so the quality is not as good as the cameras are capable of.
There’s nothing mystical about recording, streaming and sharing lectures with students. In fact a full distance learning system can be designed and installed in weeks. It starts with three simple steps: 1. Lecture Theatre Camera Use a professional camera with a zoom lens that you can control remotely. With this sort of (PTZ) camera, you can position it anywhere, including fixed to the ceiling in an inverted position. For now, the camera can be just zoomed in on the lecturer. When there’s an audience, it can zoom out and pan to capture the whole room. There’s a broad selection of professional models that deliver fantastic results in dark rooms and sun-lit halls.
UK institutions are facing the threat of a significant loss of income from overseas students in the 2020-2021 academic year. The government has signalled that degree level education can be delivered remotely and online but only where the quality of learning is maintained at a high standard. To achieve this goal, universities are implementing an eLearning strategy that places the student experience first. Without that, courses risk losing accreditation and university funding becomes a critical issue.
The UK government has challenged universities to deliver high quality online learning resources for under-graduates studying remotely. With limited time available to specify, install, integrate technology and train staff, there is pressure to select equipment that balances functionality with ease of use.
Enforcement of social distancing is expected to continue well into the Autumn. This is of particular concern for university students who may find student accommodation closed and lectures limited to 30-40% capacity. So, how can university education continue? The natural answer is online.
Streaming has long been associated with worship outreach in America, the middle east and Africa. The UK and Europe are now following suit with the faithful viewing live and recorded worship events online via Facebook and YouTube channels. So what options are available, and can it be easily set up by volunteers? Record and Upload You can choose to record an event ahead of time and upload an MP4 video file to Facebook or YouTube. Most video is streamed at 720p so set your camera to record at this video standard.
On Tuesday I had the pleasure of setting up two PTZ cameras with a new all-in-one switching, recording and streaming system from Lumens. I say pleasure because the only time I had to read the manual was for a default login. Really, just once. That’s the beauty of Lumens. We sell a lot of encoding, recording and streaming equipment, but I’m not sure anything is as straight-forward as the LC200 multi-channel recorder and streaming device. That’s great news for schools, universities, charities, business, conference and theatres – or any organisation that doesn’t have a dedicated technical crew available for every event.
