NCast Releases Android Application for Recording and Streaming

NCast Corporation, an industry leader in highresolution digital video recorders and streamers for presentation and lecture capture, has just announced the availability of an Android application for Confidence Monitoring and Control of its line of Presentation Recorders and Telepresenters.

This new application allows administrators, instructors and other personnel easy access to control and monitor their recording and streaming devices from an Android phone. With the forthcoming availability of Android tablets, the app converts these devices into easy-to-use and inexpensive touchpad controllers.

The Confidence Monitor screen presents the user with current information on the state of the recorder, including a snapshot of the image being streamed and live readout of audio levels. The Control Deck provides access to key functions for control of the device, including Session Start/Stop, Record Start/Stop/Pause/Continue, image Swap, and six source selector buttons for the Main and PiP inputs.

With this app on their phones, authorized users can manage NCast's encoders without need for access to a PC or a touch-panel. An inexpensive Android tablet can substitute for more costly custom control panels to activate Presentation Recorders and Telepresenters. The Presentation Recorder lineup includes five models of Hi-Def (720p) recorders and streamers that combine video and graphics capture with synchronized audio to allow customers to webcast and preserve for later playback company presentations, meetings, conferences, training sessions and classroom lectures.
