The main goal of the Galicaster Project is to develop an open solution to provide *flexible, state-of-the-art solutions for recording educational multimedia contents*, like lectures and conferences. Galicaster project is supported by [TELTEK Video Research|http://www.teltek.es].

Galicaster capture solution is compatible with [Opencast-Matterhorn|http://opencast.org/matterhorn/]. [OPENCAST|http://www.opencast.org/]. Galicaster-based devices can work as improved Matterhorn capture agents. They can register as a capture agent, thus being able to receive scheduled recordings and ingest the resulting mediapackages automatically.

h5. Key Features

h5. Versatility

Galicaster can be used alone, but it is *virtually adaptable to any publishing platform*, since it keep all the recording metadata and video and audio tracks are recorded separately. Proof of this is the combined [Galicaster and Opencast Matterhorn|Galicaster:Galicaster and Matterhorn, Opencast, the best match] installation which is already in production at the University of Vigo.

Galicaster can be seamlessly integrated with a wide variety of environments: low-cost, flexible equipments; best-performance, customized installations; existing campus-wide infrastructures; media distribution platforms, etc.
