Our software integrates with the latest IP camera technology. Observe in real time or review recorded high definition video in 1080p resolution. Auto-gaining discrete microphones provide high quality perfectly synchronized audio.
All of the videos are stored and managed by a built in searchable database. Tag videos with data like scenario/student name or therapy type for easy lookup and review.
Start and stop recording with the push of a button. The system also integrates with independent or in button LEDs providing a visual indicator as to when a recording is active.
Tag specific points within a recording either during live observation or during the review process. These points can have searchable descriptions associated with them. These “markers” are great for providing feedback. A marker allows users to easily jump right to that point in the video similar to chapters in a DVD.
Skills labs are areas in a school or business where students or employees can go to receive support or develop particular skills under close guidance. An important component of most modern learning labs is video observation and review. Video can be used to create effective aids for learning across all disciplines.
IVS offers the VALT (Video Audio Learning Tool) solution for recording demonstrated skills. The VALT video system is inexpensive and extremely user-friendly and requires no special equipment to view skill lab video sessions. Tens of thousands of hours of video can be stored on the VALT server, allowing students to access a myriad of video segments to assist in the learning process.
Various colleges and universities use the VALT system to record skills lab video sessions. Such recordings are made with high-definition IP cameras which can be either fixed or movable. Multiple cameras can also be placed in each room to provide additional viewing angles of the instructional skills session. Cameras are coupled with high-quality auto-gaining microphones that provide crisp, clear audio with no background hum or static.
Video sessions, once recorded, are immediately available on the central server with no lag time due to formatting or rendering. The central server, which obliviates the need for recording equipment in each room, can store around 16,000 hours of high-definition footage. Any students or other users can access video sessions using nothing more than a common internet browser, such as Chrome, Safari or Firefox — no special viewing equipment is needed.
Administrators who create skills lab video content can annotate each session with notes, which will be available to students who watch the segment. Each segment is also tagged with metadata, facilitating lookup and categorization of each session.
Video content is accessed and controlled through a simple internet browser. Administrators have full control over video settings, including determining who has access and how long learning lab videos are available on the network. Learning lab video segments are recorded in standard MP4 format, allowing easy sharing across a range of devices.
The VALT IP cameras and microphones are very portable and can be easily set up at remote locations, should you wish to record a skills lab session away from outfitted rooms. The Beam mobile capture application allows you to record video remotely using a tablet or smartphone. When you return to the building WiFi, the video content is automatically uploaded to the VALT central server.
IVS can provide a complete turnkey solution that can be implemented by any internal IT department or by a third-party integrator. IVS works closely with every institution to ensure a successful installation of the VALT digital video system. Contact us at IVS to request a quote or to schedule a product demonstration.
