Northwestern University has been successfully using Epiphan and Wirecast products for many years as part of the university’s growing requirement to capture, record and stream lectures that are given by their professors; to both the onsite and remote student population. The joint solution allows the university to capture a lecturers’ VGA, DVI, HDMI displays, cameras, microscopes and other video sources without installing any software on the video source being streamed by Wirecast.

This provides a very guest-friendly environment for visiting professors. They are able to present directly from their own laptops as though they were simply connecting to a room projector, when in fact their content is being captured and streamed. There is no need for them to load any software or make any changes to their laptop, which makes the process much more simple, timely and secure.
