Oct. 4, 2023 - Lecture capture systems have become instrumental in online learning, evolving to integrate with learning management systems (LMS) such as Blackboard, Moodle, Desire to Learn and Yuja. Audio-visual professionals have found that you can automate the video delivery process by using an auto-tracking camera with a lecture capture recording system that can publish directly to an LMS.
Automated Lecture Capture
As these lectures become increasingly accessible online, the demand for high-quality lecture recordings continues to grow. One solution to this demand is the integration of hardware lecture capture solutions, such as the Epiphan Pearl, which seamlessly connects with systems like Panopto, Kaltura, and Yuja. This ensures that educators can concentrate on delivering their lectures, confident in the knowledge that the system will handle the recording and distribution.
One essential component of these systems is the auto-tracking camera. For instance, the PTZOptics Move SE can be managed remotely and requires no human intervention during operation. These cameras offer features like setting up custom presets for locking on to a specific presenter, ensuring that the recording is always of the highest quality.
PTZOptics offers auto-tracking capabilities both as built-in features and as software add-ons. However, the software-based auto-tracking can be cumbersome in an educational setup, given the need for a dedicated computer to run the software. This leads to the rise of cameras like the PTZOptics Move SE and 4K that come with built-in auto-tracking capabilities. Among the advancements in this realm, the introduction of dual-sensor auto-tracking cameras stands out.
Understanding Dual-Sensor Auto-Tracking Cameras
While PTZOptics cameras only feature a single sensor for auto-tracking, our sister company HuddleCamHD, has been hard at work on dual-sensor auto-tracking cameras. At its core, a dual-sensor camera combines two cameras into one intelligent system, vastly enhancing its capabilities. Typically, one camera sensor offers a wide-angle view, providing intelligence to the zoom camera lens. This dynamic allows the camera to make real-time adjustments based on the room’s activities, a feature not present in single-sensor cameras.
Auto-tracking Feature Comparison
While single-sensor cameras are adept at tracking, dual-sensor cameras provide unmatched flexibility and performance. Their ability to focus on specific zones, frame groups effectively, and make real-time frame adjustments sets them apart. When choosing between the two, it’s vital to assess your specific needs and consider which features will most elevate your viewers’ experience.
