Otago Capture Lecture Recording

A new lecture recording system called Otago Capture has been installed in 35 Dunedin lecture theatres. Otago Capture can record the audio and screen of lectures as well as live-streaming in selected rooms, using Echo360 software and associated hardware devices. Otago Capture has a hardware device (called Capture+) to record what is displayed by the projector and a Windows-based software component (called Classroom Capture) to record what is on the Windows computer.
