Montreal Business School HEC makes Matrox Monarch HD the Nerve Centre of its Lecture Capture Systems
Many activities at the school point to the need for live streaming and recording. Besides daily classes and lectures, HEC regularly hosts and broadcasts events such as discussion forums, conventions, exposés, seminars, eLearning and web conferences. Registration often fills up fast, and eager students are disappointed when they cannot attend. Students are spread across two campuses in separate parts of the city and traveling from one to the other for events was problematic.
