Mediasite is the University's centrally supported enterprise recording system. Mediasite allows the creation, editing, publishing (via Blackboard and other platforms) and management of high quality media content for both teaching and non-teaching activities.
If you have booked a teaching activity through your colleges Academic Services Officers, you should have been placed into a Room fitted with a Mediasite hardware recorder. Please note the Mediasite integration system is only able to book and capture activites related to subjects, any other activites would have to be ad-hoc recorded, i.e. started and stopped manually with the red button andthen followed by submitting the ad-hoc request form. The Mediasite hardware recorders replaces the end of life Content Servers previously used.
Mediasite Desktop Recorders replaced Techsmith Relay and are available on the desktop computers in all Common Teaching Rooms. Video and audio input to the Mediasite Desktop Recorder is provided by the inbuilt camera and microphone on the desktop PC.
