Classroom Capture (CCAP) is a Windows-only software program that can be downloaded and installed on the PC resident in a classroom. It effectively turns the computer into a capture device, where the installed CCAP software and the attached cameras and microphones are used to capture classroom lectures.
See Supported Devices for CCAP and PCAP Windows for information on supported capture input devices.
See Classroom Capture for Administrators or Classroom Capture for Instructors as appropriate, for information on installation, configuration, and use of CCAP.
If you are planning to use a CCAP Installation for Live streamed classes, please refer to Using CCAP for Live Streaming first.
Note that you CANNOT install both CCAP and PCAP on the same PC; the installer will fail if it finds an instance of the other already installed.
Finally, understand that while they may meet or exceed the below-listed system requirements, CCAP is not supported for use on netbooks or on "hybrid" laptop (laptop/tablet) computers. CCAP is also not supported for use on Virtual Machines.
The following are the minimum specifications for a Classroom Capture PC.
What is an "equivalent" processor? An equivalent processor may be either an AMD (or alternative brand) processor or a newer generation Intel processor with similar processing capabilities. For example, a 5th or 6th generation Intel i3 processor may have the same (or better) processing capabilities as the 3rd generation Intel i5.
NOTE: Capturing CPU or memory-intensive applications such as CAD or 3D modeling software may require a more capable computer.
Audio CCAP must always be configured to capture audio. If there is no audio device installed on the PC, you cannot select CCAP for scheduled captures. You can use the built-in sound card input, or 1/8" line-in/mic-in connection, or USB-based audio or capture device (including a microphone on an attached video camera, if there is one). Audio levels should be configured on the input to be as high as possible without reaching maximum levels during peaks, which can cause audible distortion during recording.
Display is captured from the local VGA screen buffer, and requires no external connection or configuration. We currently support capturing resolutions up to 1080p (1920x1080).
Video can be captured using the built in camera on the classroom PC or via a USB-attached video camera.
See Supported Devices for CCAP and PCAP Windows for lists of supported and tested devices.
