Galicaster Class is a multistream recording application specially designed for lecture recording. It provides real-time feedback of the recorded media on a simple, easy-to-use, tactile interface.
Who is GClass aimed to?
Galicaster Class is aimed to educational institutions which want to record lectures and / or other educational contents on a daily basis. GClass saves them time and resources by making the recording process simple and efficient, thus reducing the need for subsequent reviews and editions to a minimum.
As a professor, how do I operate GClass?
Professors only need to worry about the microphone. A warning will show up on the screen if the audio is too low, probably because the microphone is mute or run out of batteries. The audio can be turned off and on at will, so the professor can choose not to get some parts of their speech recorded if they desire to.
Some basic actions (start, pause and stop) are also available, allowing a finer control on the recording. This way, the professor can prevent undesired fragments of the lecture like breaks, exercise resolutions, etc., from being recorded.

How do I use GClass with Opencast Matterhorn?
GClass can work as a basic Matterhorn capture agent. It can register as a capture agent on a Matterhorn core, thus being able to receive and process Matterhorn recording schedules, and ingest the resulting mediapackages afterwards.
The main improvement GClass brings up is its graphic interface, providing realtime feedback and manual control. It also allows an easy mechanism to ingest mediapackages that were recorded off-line, or retry the ingestion of a failed mediapackage.
Can I use Galicaster Class with other systems?
Yes, Galicaster Class can be adapted to any media management or publishing systems.
