Low Cost Lecture Capture System

Many universities have some type of a lecture capture system to record a class, conference or seminar. These systems are generally expensive and may only provide part of the complete need to capture, encode, add metadata, publish and archive. There are applications that will capture audio/video and scripts that will move files but not many applications have the ability to be setup for recording days in advance, record, transcode, add metadata, publish and archive the source and transcoded files automatically. AT-Capture is a low cost lecture capture system created by Academic Technologies at the University of Notre Dame to automate and upload files to iTunes U. It is used on a weekly basis to capture the weekly Sunday Mass and has been extensively tested over three years. The AT-Capture application is an Xcode Cocoa application designed to perform these features with little setup and interaction. It will record an input from a variety of audio/video sources and automatically save a raw Digital Video (DV) file in high resolution using QuickTime and the QTKit frameworks. There are three ways that the capture can be initiated; Automatic, Scheduled or Manual (Pressing the Record button). The Automatic and Scheduled modes will wait until the specified recording date is reached to begin recording and will end at the specified time. If metadata (Title, Artist, Album, Comment, Genre, Year) is needed to be embedded into the file, it can be automatically inserted. The application will also automatically publish to iTunes U using Podcast Producer server. AT-Capture can also make a copy of the uncompressed DV file (master copy) for editing and save the source, a copy and the transcoded file to different servers for storage and archive. AT-Capture will run on Mac OS 10.5, 10.6 and 10.7 on both PowerPC and Intel Macintosh computers.
