Picture this. Salt Lake City. Three feet of snow and wind blowing outside, cold and fever, and to top it off, having a bad hair day. Enough reasons for even the most diligent student to stay in bed! But there is one important class at the David Eccles School of Business that simply can’t be missed. Not to worry, with the new classroom studio enabled by Matrox Monarch HD, all classroom activities, including lectures and white board content are captured and streamed live so students don’t miss a single thing. The classes are made available online on demand as well for future reference.
At the core of the classroom studio is the Matrox Monarch HD streaming and recording appliance. The School of Business was looking for a nice and simple process where they could take the recorded class content and provide it to its video distribution and streaming services with a quick turnaround. Software based applications fell short of expectations. In addition, the school wanted to have high quality recordings that could be edited by non-linear editors and uploaded online as course content that the students could view on demand.
