SMP Series Recording and Streaming
COVID-19 has resulted in schools shut all across the world. Globally, over 1.2 billion children are out of the classroom. As a result, education has changed dramatically, with the distinctive rise of e-learning, whereby teaching is undertaken remotely and on digital platforms.
There are several different options on the market for broadcasting a digital TV signal to your viewers. Some allow you to stream a signal to the internet and then down to your viewers, and some of them are even free (YouTube). But a school announcement broadcast shouldn’t be out on the web for all to view.
Lecture capture for online education was already skyrocketing in importance over the past few years. Now, it’s now become essential for all institutions In New Zealand and the Pacific. To help facilitate this, Extron developed the SMP Series, a high-performance recording and streaming processor for capturing and distributing AV sources and presentations. Designed for simple control and flexibility, it’s able to record and stream simultaneously and can stream at two different resolutions and bitrates concurrently using a range of transport protocols and session management options.
How easy to Configure
When it comes time to set up a recording, the system has a built-in calendar so you can automate the process by scheduling a start time. The unit supports iCal feeds, Google Calendar, and Microsoft Office 365/Exchange scheduling, as well as scheduling with the company’s integration with both Kaltura and Panopto. It also supports Kaltura and Opencast APIs, which can be used to streamline the process even more.
If you have any problems getting things started, AVW SSG has Extron certified technician who can assist you 7/12 on configuration as well as for troubleshooting.
