What is Galicaster?
Galicaster is a Multistream Recorder and Player designed for mobile equipment without requiring an Internet connexion, allowing us to record, tag and review multistream material, all together in one application.
Galicaster is designed to be compatible with the Opencast Matterhron Project, so we can schedule recordings and ingest them remotely. The Opencast Matterhorn (OC-MH) project, an international, free, open-source effort on educational multimedia content from which we would benefit from, taking advantage of all the tools within to process and distribute educational material. Once Galicaster is settle in, we can record, play, edit and modify metadata of the recordings (all in OC-MH Mediapackage format) and finally ingest them to a Matterhorn Core.
Other important feature of Galicaster is that we can control in realtime the parameters of the capture (proper recording, volume characteristics, video quality...), viewing on place what we are recording.
Galicaster is been developed with GStreamer and Python, designed as a heavy application fully based on free software.
Galicaster Class almost ready
After a long hard-working summer we are almost ready to install our first Galicaster Class prototype.Two classrooms on either facuties of the University of Vigo will host a GClass capture agent connected to an Opencast Matterhorn server.
As soon as posible some demos would be published for you to have a better idea of what GClass is.
