Servers

The LC recorders offer many built-in methods to offload and distribute content: automatic upload to YouTube, Google Drive, Kaltura, FTP servers, NCast’s Presentation Server and a USB stick.

For many universities and colleges the Opencast server project (an open-source content management system) has proven to be a cost-effective substitute for high priced, proprietary commercial solutions.

This site offers easy-to-test and easy-to-use versions of this server through a monthly subscription service on the cloud (utilizing virtual machines on Amazon Cloud Services).

Simple pick the base VM machine type you wish to use, specify the amount of storage desired and use the quantity to pay for the number of months of operation and then checkout. Your server will be launched and ready within hours.

Support is provided only through the Opencast community and its forums and mailing lists. The server software launched is the latest stable release and will be updated when new packages become available.
