(Echo360) Personal Capture
The Personal Capture desktop recording tool is available on lectern computers in all university AV equipped venues and can also be installed on your own computer. It can record the lapel mic audio as well as the computer desktop video, and needs to be manually started and stopped by the lecturer. It does not record the output of laptops, visualisers or DVD players.
In order to download Personal Capture to your own computer you'll need to complete the lecture recording booking form. This will create your user account in EchoSystem. You only need to carry out this process once for each Unit of Study.
You will then be able to login to the EchoSystem Portal using your Unikey and password. Click on the downloads tab and then click on either the Windows 32 or Mac OSX installers depending on your Operating System.
Please refer to the relevant user guide (PDF) to the right of this page for detailed instructions. The PC user guide should be used for University lectern computers. For more information please call the ICT Audio Visual Help Desk on 9351 6000 (x16000 menu option 2).
Lapel Mic Recorder (Audio Only)
You can record just the audio of your presentation directly onto the computer with the 'Lapel Mic Recorder’ located on the computer desktop in all AV equipped venues.
NB: This device is not available in some of the smaller seminar rooms which don't have lapel microphones installed.
Just follow these steps:
- Click the 'Lapel Mic Recorder' icon located on the toolbar at the botton of the computer desktop.
- You must use the lapel mic, so ensure it’s switched on and clipped high on your collar or top.
- To start recording, press the red record button. A prompt will ask where you’d like to save the recording.
- Select the location and name your recording. The recording will then start automatically.
- Click the ‘Stop’ icon to end your recording. It will be saved as an MP3 file and you can close the window.
- You can now copy your audio recording to a storage device such as a USB memory stick.
