Picture this. Salt Lake City. Three feet of snow and wind blowing outside, cold and fever, and to top it off, having a bad hair day. Enough reasons for even the most diligent student to stay in bed! But there is one important class at the David Eccles School of Business that simply can?t be missed. Not to worry. With the new classroom studio enabled by Matrox Monarch HD, all classroom activities--including lectures and whiteboard content--are captured and streamed live so students don?t miss a single thing. The classes are made available online on demand as well for future reference.
At the core of the classroom studio is the Matrox Monarch HD streaming and recording appliance. The School of Business was looking for a nice and simple process where they could take the recorded class content and provide it to its video distribution and streaming services with a quick turnaround. Software-based applications fell short of expectations. In addition, the school wanted to have high-quality recordings that could be edited by nonlinear editors and uploaded online as course content that the students could view on demand.
Why Monarch HD?
Mark Fowles, AV and Technology Support Specialist at the David Eccles School of Business, summed up the reasons why he homed in on Matrox Monarch HD:
? With software-based applications, the computer that the software was running on would lock up in the middle of a recording, and all data was lost. A decision was made to find a product that worked more like an appliance.
? Software-based uncompressed video capture produced large files ? about 500 GB for an hour?s worth of video. With Matrox Monarch HD, a two-hour lecture produced compressed files less than 2 GB in size. read more...
