How to Set Video and Audio Settings
NOTE: During spring 2019 Tufts is replacing CaptureSpace Lite with Kaltura's new capture tool, Kaltura Capture. Both tools will be available until May 30, 2019. Starting June 1, 2019, only Kaltura Capture will be available.
We encourage you to start capturing video with Kaltura Captura (instead of CaptureSpace Lite) as soon as is convenient.
Feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance with lecture capture.
Once CaptureSpace Lite is launched, the Desktop Recorder toolbox will appear in the corner of the screen
Click the "Settings" tab
Choose settings according to your needs
Assign a place to store files locally (on your computer) before they're uploaded to your MediaSpace account. You can use the default location or choose an alternate location.
Click the "Select a Webcam" menu to choose a camera source. This can be your laptop's built-in webcam or a camera you've attached.
Note: The small preview of the video may be distorted. Don't worry about this, video will be captured without distortion.
Click the "Select a Microphone" menu to choose an audio source. This can be your laptop's microphone or a mic you've attached.
Camera Recording Quality
Select the recording quality you wish to capture from your camera:
For the webcam:
- 480P is "regular definition", as in the traditional TV format, with a 4:3 aspect ratio
- 720P is "high definition" or HD, with a 16:9 aspect ratio -- we recommend this setting
Note: P stands for "progressive-scan" meaning: the number of horizontal scan-lines that comprise the image
For more camera resolution options, click "More>" and choose from the menu
Screen Capture Recording Quality
Select the recording quality you wish to capture from your screen:
For screen capture, both are 16:9 aspect ratio:
- HD 720P is "high definition" or HD, with a 16:9 aspect ratio
- HD 1080P is "full high definition" or FHD, with a 16:9 aspect ratio and a slightly clearer image -- we recommend this setting
