What can I do to make a successful Lecture Recording?

Lecture Recording is mostly an automated process, typically scheduled in advance. Presenters should be mindful of three elements to make sure their Lecture Recording recordings are a success:

  1. The Microphone: All microphones in the room are connected to the system and must be active in order to record anything spoken, even if they are not needed to be heard in the space. If the microphone is not working, contact your organization's support team.
  2. The Projector: The Lecture Recording system will record anything shown on the main display in the room. Additionally, Zoom (and other streaming platforms) will acknowledge the projector as a second screen. If you need to hide the image on the screen, select “Blank” or another source from the touch panel rather than image mute. Image mute will simply close the shutter on the projector and not stop the signal from being recorded.
  3. The Camera: Be aware of where the camera is in the room. Typically, the camera is mounted from the ceiling somewhere in the back half of the room or in the window of the technician's booth (depending on the venue). Playing to the camera is not necessary by any means, but if it is not pointed in your direction please contact your organization's support team.
