Tecom is adding a one-touch recording option, integrating various third-party digital media recorders with the TechPod. TechPods are now being used with recording equipment from companies like Sonicfoundry Mediasite, MediaPOINTE and TVONE in a variety of facilities.
Tecom's TechPod Interactive Lecterns are renowned for their user-friendly design with total AV control in a single, button-based control panel and interactive screen. Each TechPod comes with its own computer with a DVD player, VCR, public address audio system, interactive screen, lighting and projection screen controls, and a new option, a recording and a live-streaming system.
Tecom’s technology allows the TechPod to have a single point of connection to the digital media recorder, ensuring simplicity, ease of use, and minimal technical support and maintenance. The TechPod integrates a switcher and a scaler to send all input sources into a single XGA line. The multimedia recording option is ready to go immediately after initial installation of the unit within the facility, completely eliminating the need for both a machine with four inputs and an onsite recording technician to manage the process.
Once the lecturer pushes the record button, the digital media recorder captures all sources using the XGA and audio lines, creating a standard or high-definition digital recording for later access or for immediate live streaming. The recording can be played in and on various formats including QuickTime, MPEG-4 players, and personal media players; streaming can occur up to 5Mbps, 30fps, 1080p.
