The intention of the Multi Capture V4 system is to offer an easy way to record, view and edit one or more (up to 6) video and audio streams simultaneously.

In oder to allow users quick and easy editing, the surface of Multi Capture was divided into 3 areas.

The user will find a graphical user interface with classic icons that are already known from typical media player software. This allows rapid entry to the software application.

Multi Capture V4 is available for Windows-, Android- an iPad- systems in German and English. Furthermore there is an Active Directory management for servers.

RECORDING

Simultaneously recording different formats is possible; e.g. two cameras and the desktop of a tutor. A wireless presenter enables a tutor to control PowerPoint presentations. He could also set chapter markers during recording (metadata in an XML file for Multi Capture V4).
