Distance Smarter Classroom Solution - Experiencing Distance Lectures in Person
  • Multiport simultaneous filming
  • Hardware desigh-plug and record
  • Recording in streaming type
  • High quality video in different views

With the advancement of video and internet technologies, globally, an increasing number of high schools, middle schools, and elementary schools are recording their popular courses and teaching demonstrations for Distance Smarter Classroom, student reviewing courses, sharing teaching material, and course evaluation. To provide the most comprehensive automated remediation service for campuses, ezStation Lecture Capture System records teacher’s screen and the classroom interactions in video and is highly integrated with the controls of HiTeach interactive teaching system on the Smarter Classroom end of TEAM Model. More importantly, it supports the IRS Interactive Response System on the classroom end. Students can make critical marks and difficult marks during lecture, and the marked materials and videos are automatically uploaded to IES Instructional Expert System after recording is finished. After class, students can log into Aclass ONE Learning Companion App to watch the video of the lecture and can find the parts with critical and difficult marks to efficiently complete self-remediation.

Function Description

- Multi-channel video and audio retrieval function that provides concurrent retrieval of single-path computer VGA signal, dual-path video, and single-path audio.
- VGA signal can be retrieved via HDMI or VGA terminals; Video signal can be retrieved via HDMI or IP network terminals.

2. ezStation Lecture Capture System can perform multi-stream processing and encoding for dual-path video, single-path VGA, and single-path audio, producing multi-viewport media files. With regular media players, users can view audio-visual content recorded with up to four paths of video sources.
