h5. How does Galicaster fit in Matterhorn?

Every Galicaster application can work as a basic standard Matterhorn capture agent. It can register as a capture agent, thus being able to receive scheduled recordings and ingest the resulting mediapackages automatically. The main advantages of Galicaster, compared to a standard Matterhorn capture agents are:

* It has a *graphic interface*.
* *Reingesting media* is very *easy*.
* Users can *replay and review* the recorded media, and
* It provides *media repository features* such metadata edition, recording search, and bulk deletion (very useful when dozens of lectures have been recorded).
* _(New in 1.1)_ Series harvest and edition.
* It provides *media repository features* such metadata edition, recording search and export to side by side compostion.

Manual recordings can be introduced into the Opencast Matterhorn system like a regular scheduled mediapacakge.. Galicaster harvest the available series to use them to edit and catalog a mediapackage before ingesting. Also, a predefined workflow can be set for those recordings, including the paramaters.

Galicaster is compatible wiht Opencast Mattehorn 1.2, 1.3 and the upcoming 1.4.

* _(New in 1.1)_ Custom workflow parameters can be set on each Galicaster agent.
