Lecture & Event Capture

Lecture and event video capture is a service offered by the IT Help Desk. The traditional method of video capture is accomplished by having a single camera and videographer assigned to the room. The primary emphasis is to video the instructor, guest speaker or student presenter, as they present the course material. A Livestream option is also available. Once the material is captured to video, the files are sent to the Alternative Media Center for post-production processing. This processing includes basic editing, the addition of opening and closing graphics, the addition of graphic overlays containing each presenter's name, closed-captioning, and formatting the video for streaming. The video of the lecture can be uploaded to the campus YouTube channel CSUSonoma, or a private link can be provided for downloading. The link can also be incorporated into into Moodle as a streaming video. The IT Help Desk is currently testing equipment that will automate the video capture and processing of classroom lectures across campus.
