In short, the Epiphan Systems Lecture Recorder consists of an internet appliance the size of a paperback book running Linux OS and powered by a powerful mobile Motorola PowerPC processor. It has 5 USB ports in total for external devices (1 internal + 4 external) and comes equipped with an on-board DVI, VGA, video, and audio capture cards.  The ELR is able to capture video, audio, and a projector feed and then, through a LAN or the Internet, transmit it either directly to an audience or to a server, where it can be archived for later viewing. Online lectures, distance education, and digital lecture archiving are, without a doubt, one of the components of the 21st century classroom. Epiphan Systems is set on becoming a market leader in the manufacture of hardware capture solutions for the classroom environment. All code on the Epiphan Lecture Recorder is fully open-source. The ELR can be adapted to virtually any web interface or custom software.
