Vizrt CaptureCast Saves the Day

The article titled “Class of 2024: University of Utah, SJ Quinney College of Law” by Macy O’Hearn for AVNetwork, discusses how the University of Utah’s SJ Quinney College of Law cost-effectively expanded the availability of their lecture capture (LC) service to more classroom locations. The college invested in an NDI-based LC solution from Vizrt called CaptureCast, which can consume the growing number of NDI-based sources added to the learning spaces using both software and hardware NDI solutions. The main challenge was gaining traction and support for the AVoIP (specifically NDI) solutions from the central campus resources, as the college needed resources not available on staff, with AV system coding support being the most critical need to enable coding the legacy matrix switch out of the equation and adding support for the NDI-based solutions into the existing touch panel UI.

What were the main goals of this project at the University of Utah’s SJ Quinney College of Law?
The main goals of the project at the University of Utah’s SJ Quinney College of Law were to cost-effectively continue to support established lecture capture processes and expand the availability of the lecture capture service to more classroom locations.

What was the main challenge the college faced in implementing the new lecture capture solution?
The main challenge the college faced in implementing the new lecture capture solution was gaining traction and support for AVoIP (specifically NDI) solutions from central campus resources. As a smaller department, the college needed resources not available on staff, with AV system coding support being the most critical need. This support would enable coding the legacy matrix switch out of the equation and adding support for the NDI-based solutions into the existing touch panel UI.

What equipment was used in the new lecture capture solution?
The equipment used in the new lecture capture solution at the University of Utah’s SJ Quinney College of Law included Magewell Pro Convert HDMI Plus, NewTek NDI Tools screen capture and webcam tools, and the NewTek CaptureCast Server.
