Requests for recording a lecture must be submitted electronically at the latest one week before the requested date by completing the service request at helpdesk.czu.cz. After the request is received, a CAVP employee will contact you and arrange other details. You can find the guide for submitting a request at the ServiceDesk here.
Mediasite offers several options for how to present your lecture:
The lecture is provided to students by the teacher through a simple tutorial in the course. The student can then view the lecture after signing up for Moodle.
Direct access via the Mediasite catalogue
Public catalogue – no login information required (mediasite.czu.cz)
Non-public catalogue – an own catalogue can be created where access is associated with a login name and password.
The Mediasite system collects rich statistics and information on individual lectures. If a lecture is available through Moodle, it is possible to find out which student has devoted time to the lecture. The statistics can be exported to an organized Excel spreadsheet at the teacher’s request. The following figure shows brief public lecture statistics with a viewing graph in minutes.
After the lecture is successfully uploaded, the record is uploaded to the server where it is available for further processing. The start and end (including possible cuts) are cut, the sound is adjusted, and individual slides from the presentation can be adjusted and organized. After processing, the recording will be included as a video recording in the relevant catalogue of the subject.
In a lecture or auditorium where a Mediasite recorder is not installed
Trained CAVP staff installs a recording device (laptop, webcam, microphone). The presentation (PPT, PDF, DOC,...) is transferred to a prepared computer and is launched. It is also necessary to attach a wireless microphone to the teacher’s clothing for recording the spoken word. The recording starts before the beginning of the lecture. At the end of the lecture, the staff ends the recording and processes it according to the teacher's requirements.
In the SIC Congress Hall
The SIC Congress Hall offers a simpler alternative. Here, the recorder is integrated into the hall system and a microphone is required to record the lecture and inform the staff of the hall that the recording has begun. After the lecture, the recording is stopped and ready to be processed according to the teacher's requirements.
Newly at the Wood Pavilion
In the recently opened Wood Pavilion, the Mediasite system is also a functional part of the large lecture room (2.01) and two classrooms (1.06,1.07). Touch panels are available in these rooms on which the teacher starts and ends the lecture recording using the red "Record" button. Everything is then done automatically and the sound is captured from the department and from microphones on the ceiling.
During a lecture, using a camera and a microphone, it captures the lecturer and concurrently records ongoing presentations from a computer or laptop. The automated Mediasite system combines source video, audio and presentation recordings in a synchronized unit, the output of which is an online video lecture. The course of the recorded lecture does not require the presenter to adapt, i.e. the Mediasite system works in the background.
Here you can see an example of a recorded lecture.
Rooms are organized at faculties at the university in which it is possible to make videoconferencing calls. It is important that the room is free at the time of the call. CAVP staff will always try to find a suitable room for the call upon agreement with faculty representatives.
A videoconference is a standalone codec (specific computer) equipped with a camera, microphone, outputs to projection screens or screens and inputs for displaying content, and therefore you do not have to bring anything specific with you. However, if you want to show a presentation to the counterparty to from your computer, you will need to bring a laptop and the technicians will connect it to the videoconferencing unit.
The date and time of the requested connection time.
The requested length of the connection in hours.
The number of participants from CULS.
Specification of destination (counterparty).
IP address of called location.
If this is a multipoint, then the number of the virtual room.
Contact information for the local technician (name, e-mail and telephone).
Two dates (per one hour) for testing the connection, which must take place at the latest one day before the date of the videoconference.
If possible, the dates should be during normal work hours – in particular with regard to ensuring that a technician is available, free videoconferencing units and the space of the counterparty.
CAVP technicians will connect to a remote counterparty (counterparties) at least 30 minutes before the beginning of the official transmission. Based on experience, this minimum time delay is needed to address potential final technical deficiencies that did not occur during the previous testing.
Participants will arrive at least 15 minutes before the start of an official session and will receive brief instructions on how to use the VC unit during the transmission. If the VC unit is used as part of a complex AV infrastructure (many different AV signal sources, transferable videoconferences, etc.), it will be necessary for the participants to cooperate during the preparation and testing of the VC connection.
During an official session, at least one CAVP technician is available throughout the transmission. If necessary, the technician will become involved in the VC transmission remotely.
The videoconferencing connection will be terminated after it is officially ended by the parties, participant or CAVP technician.
The tours are stored on the school repository and will be available at:
http://video.czu.cz/.../NAZEVPROHLIDKY – we will always specify the address.
Support for most mobile phones is currently implemented.
A preview of all the photographed areas will be made available after the photoshoot and basic processing of the virtual tour. A photoshoot, exclusion or other modifications to the virtual tour can be arranged on the basis of the preview.
Based on the information that arrives in your request, you will be contacted by a CAVP technician, and you and the technician will arrange the details of the process:
An accurate list of places to be photographed will be created – we recommend only representative and interesting areas.
The date of the photoshoot is selected (if exteriors are included in the tour, it will be necessary also consider bad weather, in which case the date can be moved), and the presentation method for the virtual tour is determined.
For the photoshoot, on the agreed date it will be necessary to provide photographers access to areas that are to be photographed which are properly tidy and clean with minimal staff.
If you want to upload a video to YouTube, you will need to convert the original unsuitable camera output to a suitable format, e.g.: MP4, 3GP, FLV, SWF, AVI, MPEG, VOB, etc.
Requests for digitalization of your records should be submitted electronically at least three weeks before the required date by filling-in a request at helpdesk.czu.cz. After your request is received, a CAVP employee will contact you to arrange further details. You can find the guide for submitting a request at the ServiceDesk here.
