This service provides dedicated equipment to a room which allows you to record and securely store video and audio sessions. Observation Recording Systems were initially designed for recording counseling sessions for later review; however, this system can be used for other mentoring, instruction and academic purposes. Each room contains a powered camera and microphone which securely feed servers hosted in the BYU Data Center. A sophisticated software application is provided to those who have been granted access that allows them to observe the room live video and/or view previously recorded sessions. Department Administrators can grant rights for individuals who need access to specific rooms or videos. Recordings can be started ad hoc or scheduled in advance. Supervisors or faculty can mark up videos with comments as needed and share those with counselors or students.
Each Room contains:
Camera / Mic are wired to the network on a restricted VLAN
A Video Recording Server is configured to view and record feeds from the Camera/Mics.
Authorized Users are able to access IVS VALT software from a computer browser at authorized locations on campus. With proper credentials users can view and record feeds from cameras. Contact Department Administrators for URL information, and access rights.
To access this service, please contact the Department Administrator or the AV Product Manager.
Note: Live Streaming and Video Recordings may be accessed via a user’s computer from on campus if they are authorized to view recordings.
The Observation Systems are an enterprise ITI AV hardware initiative and are acquired through a resource planning cycle. Please contact the AV Product Manager for information on procuring this service for a new area.
