Extron Streaming Media Processors integrate with Opencast Media Server to serve the role of a “capture agent” for recording AV presentations in the classroom, from scheduling to publishing. Opencast is a free, open-source platform for the management of AV media recorded in training and education environments. Organizations use Opencast to schedule, process, and distribute AV recordings to Learning Management Systems – LMS. Opencast also provides a video-on-demand server for browser-based playback of recorded media. Recording schedules can be entered and managed directly from Opencast, while the SMP continuously updates schedule data for reliable initiation of recording sessions. The SMP delivers long recordings to Opencast as sequential MP4 files that maintain complete audio and video program with no gaps, ensuring that events are captured in their entirety.
