Answer

All Information Commons computers (including the presentation room computers) have a software that wipes all documents on reboot (DeepFreeze software).

Please save all work to an external source like Google Drive or flash drive. Video files may be too large to save to email.


Recording Video with the Logitech C910 for Windows 7 in the Library Group Presentation Rooms

1.       Launch the Logitech Webcam Software and select “Quick Capture”.

2.       Prepare to record:

a.       Select Video as depicted on the picture below.

b.      Choose your Resolution. 

                    i.      The best video quality settings are:

1.       Widescreen

2.       1080p

c.       Pan, tilt, and zoom as need using the available controls.

3.       To start recording, click on the blue-green video camera icon below the preview window.

a.       The default location for video files is the Desktop.


If you would like to convert the .wmv file: 

Handbrake, a video converting software, is available on this computer (icon looks like a pineapple). You can convert videos into .mp4, .mkv, or .mov files.

On the Mac side of the computers in Information Commons, you can also save your file "save as" .mov to convert it.

Please note: converting your video file will take some time and may increase the size of the file.
