Video Recording Tools

The Lecture Recording system records video of the instructor (or whiteboard), any content presented through the projector, and anything said over the in-room microphone(s). These signals can then be processed in any combination to create recordings that are typically made available to students through Canvas.

M-Cam is a camera control mobile app for use with the CAEN Lecture Recording Service, available in many U-M classrooms on campus. Featuring gesture controls, position presets and easy setup, M-Cam allows you to create high-quality recordings over Wi-Fi. MiCam includes simple startup, gesture controls, position presets, and persistent login. M-cam can be downloaded to any iOS or Android device to begin recording.
