  • Ability to record from attached audio sources
  • Ability to Hold Files in secure location to perform additional processing (editing, close captioning, etc.)
  • Ability to authenticate into system via multiple authentication methods (LMS,AD, etc.)
  • Integration with campus systems (BLACKBOARD, WordPress, iTunes U)
  • Cross platform compatibility and access (Mac/PC and viewing on mobile device)
  • Compatibility with existing hardware solutions

  • Integrations with room control systems

  • Ability to monitor signal being input into system for loss of video or audio

Videos of both NextGen Lecture Capture finalists are now available for viewing at Drake University on iTunes U. Both videos were created during the finalists presentations at Sussman Theater during the week of November 12th.

We again invite the Drake Campus Community to view these videos and complete a short survey. This feedback will be used to assist in the final recommendation.

The finalist vendors who presented include:

TechSmith Corporation (Camtasia Relay)
Panopto, Inc. 

A features matrix of both vendors is also available for review.
