Digitization of the SAVILLE analogue Conference interpreting recording facility: Booths: End-user

The instructor sets the booth AV sources as usual (using the CRESTRON remote control).

The student in the booth starts the trprecord.exe from the student-accessible share (if the application is already running, an attempt to start another instance brings the current instance to the foreground).

In the GUI (which should not be hidden by blocking the student screen with AV signal; one more reason to stop the wasteful sharing of one screen between AV and VGA signal):

  1. choose whether to record “Audio” or “Video”(the disabled (grayed out) non-live recording modes are not yet implemented. they would be a completely separate extension of the SAVILLE system.).
  2. press “Start”, wait for the message indicating recording has begun
  3. pressing “Start” enables the “Stop” button; press “Stop” when finished
  4. once the “Play” button has been activated, the student can listen to the last recording in the default player for WMA or WMV files (normally Windows Media Player).
  5. both student and instructors can listen to other (past and/or peer) recordings by “open[ing the network share] folder”. The instructor (having full control permissions on the network share folder) controls the release of network share videos. Students can only read from this network share folder. The filename, e.g. trprecord_2009_08_04_18_24_47_MORLIB–PCC6392_plagwitt.wma, indicates this:

  7. Currently, the computer in the booths of the interpreting suite have the following names (note that the computer names are not aligned with the booth numbers; update this when the computers get upgraded):

  9. When listening to the recording in Windows Media Player, use the “Balance” slider which you can enable by clicking Menu:File / View / Enhancements / Graphics Equalizer. Wiggle the slider
  10. Press F1-key for (this) Help. Pay attention to program feedback messages in red.

View trprecord_demo_walkthrough.AVI (your problems with videos are addressed here; no screencast this time, as 2 simultaneous video encoding sessions would overtax the recording computer and could not demonstrate the interaction with the new secondary video screen) which demonstrates ease of use of the program itself and recording files it
