1. Does the Matterhorn Capture Device work as a stand-alone recorder, streamer, or broadcaster?

No, Matterhorn Capture Device (MCD) cannot function as a stand-alone device. A Matterhorn server is required in order to retrieve the recordings made by MCD. In a situation without a network connection to the Matterhorn server, such as during network downtime or when using the device outside of the classroom, videos are archived to the MCD's internal memory and uploaded when a network connection is present.

If you require a stand-alone appliance, please refer to our broadcasting or recording products.

2. Where can I find out more about implementing Matterhorn for my application?

Technical support as well as information about the Matterhorn platform can be found at http://www.opencastproject.org/. Epiphan Systems does not provide technical support for this product.

3. Can I use an external power source?

Yes. Even though the MCD supports PoE (Power-over-Ethernet) an Ethernet power injector, purchased seperately, may be used as a power source.

4. Does the Matterhorn Capture Device do picture-in-picture recording?

No. The Matterhorn Capture Device captures video from the DVI (HD) source and S-Video (SD) source and saves it as a multitrack AVI file, with one video channel per track.

5. Can I capture full HD video?

Yes, MCD can capture full motion HD video through its DVI input.

6. What is included in the box?

Only the Matterhorn Capture Device is included in the box. All cables must be purchased seperately.

7. What audio/video inputs can Matterhorn Capture Device use?

Matterhorn Capture Device has a DVI input for high resolution (HD) video capture and a S-Video input for standard resolution (SD) video capture.

Through the use of converter cables or adapters, MCD can accept inputs such as VGA and HDMI video (unencrypted only) into the DVI input.

A composite video source can also be connected to the S-Video input through a converter cable or adapter.
