Digital Presentation Studio

Service Description: 

The Digital Presentation Studio (DPS) is a space to practice presentations and record those sessions for later review. The recorded presentations are recorded and saved in your cloud storage or external drive as streaming video files.

The DPS simulates the classroom presentation environment with an iMac connected to a 50" plasma display, and a small area for an audience.  A mounted camera with a microphone records the presentation, and a simple control starts and stops the recording. Camtasia and Tegrity software is available to record the computer screen and audio. After stopping the recording, the presenter may edit the video. The video file can be saved to personal cloud-based storage, video sharing site, or external hard drive.
