Streaming HS20

For HS20 the UZH lectures and seminars have to be streamed online. The UZH recommends ZOOM to do so. This is problematic for two reasons:

  • This has to be configured and started manually per lecture (time intensive, error-prone).
  • Blackboards are hard to capture/stream with legacy notebook webcam.

Currently the I-MATH IT is developing a system called 'SeminarLive' for the MNF to simplify the whole process of streaming and recording.

This pilot project will be installed in 4 MNF (non I-MATH) rooms and the I-MATH rooms Y27-H12, H25, H26, H28, H36/37 (planned), H46 (missing: Y27H52 / terminal room)
