How do I start a recording?

Turn on the camera, microphone and display.

In most lecture halls, touch the Crestron panel and select Desktop to warm up the projector. Touch the More Sources button and Camera to wake-up the video camera. If the instructor is using a handheld or lapel microphone, turn it on.

Log into the Echo device.

At the podium computer, open the bookmark or shortcut to "Echo360 capture." If there is no bookmark or shortcut, see KB0013267 in TechConnect.

You will be prompted for a username and password. Credentials and login details can be found in KB0013267.

If you have difficulty logging into a device, check the device URL. If it ends with "/advanced," it is asking for the device's admin login and password. If it does not end with "/advanced," it is asking for the instructor login and password. Both sets of credentials are listed in KB0013267.

Select the "Monitor" tab and click "Start Monitoring."

See if the projector feed, the camera and the audio are all working.

Click on the Captures tab and click the "Stop Monitoring" button.

Click on the green button for "Ad Hoc Capture."

Fill in the capture details.

Enter a lecture title and estimated duration. Be careful to give enough time for the duration -- you can stop a capture at anytime, but you can't extend a capture. When in doubt, overestimate.

Most devices default to capture the audio and both video feeds at Standard quality. This is sufficient for most recordings. See more information about quality levels in the Echo360 documentation.

Click the "Start Ad Hoc Capture" button.

Minimize the browser window.

The instructor can begin their presentation.

After the lecture, open the browser window and click "Stop Capture."
