Premier Assistive Technology has announced the release of the Premier Presentation Capture software. This software package allows instructors to easily record their presentations and transfer them into video podcasts.
For environments where digital tools are employed (SMART Board, PowerPoint presentations, etc.), Premier Presentation Capture records all elements of a digital presentation into compact media files, which can later be played on a computer or other multimedia players, including Premier VPod or an Apple iPod.
The Presentation Capture software creates compact multimedia files that can later be placed on a server. Students can then review the material at anytime. The video files are compatible with both Macintosh and Windows-based operating systems.
Once a lecture or presentation has been captured, students can replay and review the information as many times as necessary by simply opening the particular lecture, and forwarding to the desired section. This alleviates any errors, such as writing down the wrong information, or missing notes, because the students get to see the complete original presentation.
Premier Presentation Capture is part of the Premier VideoCast Studio, which contains the following:
• Premier Presentation Capture: Capture both audio and video presentations, and turn them into video podcasts. Premier Presentation Capture is compatible with all types of interactive "digital" white boards, including SMART Board and Promethean.
• Premier VideoCast Software: Turn documents on your computer into portable multimedia files that can be optimized in today's hand-held media players.
• VPod Video Converter: The video converter is a batch video converter that converts virtually all video file types, making them compatible with Premier Assistive Technology's Key to Access VPod.
The suggested retail price for Premier VideoCast Studio is $199.95. For more information, go to Premier Assistive's website at www.readingmadeeasy.com and select Educational Solutions.
