The following rooms have cameras installed in the ceilings. They fall into four categories
- Is high definition and has a zoom
- Is standard definition and has a zoom
- Is high definition but does not have a zoom
High definition with a zoom is normally in rooms that have large whiteboards and are used heavily for maths / engineering / physics lectures. Standard definition with a zoom are normally in rooms where the camera needs to be positioned at the back of the room, but isn’t in a room where whiteboards are used as heavily. High definition cameras without a zoom are in smaller rooms and point at the presenter rather than the board.
Remember that cameras pointed at whiteboards are best recorded as a secondary source. See the help pages for capturing visualizers, whiteboards and blackboards.
You can find out what camera is in which room from the information below. We are also updating the timetabling information so you can request a room with a camera or a “recordable whiteboard” / “recordable blackboard”.
|High definition with zoom||Standard definition with zoom||High definition without zoom||Other|
|02/1039||02a/2065||04/4003||65a/3043 (SD, no zoom)|
|68/LabM (not yet active)||63/3023|
|68/Biology (not yet active)||65/1177 (room refurbishment)|
|SGH/LT1||67/1027 [Note 1]|
|85/2207 (not yet active)|
Note 1: 67/1027 is a High Definition camera, however to ensure the audience is not visible the image is cropped and performs as an Standard Definition camera.
Note 2: This camera doesn’t have a zoom, but can point at a whiteboard. It is not marked in the timetabling system as a recordable whiteboard, but the option is available to staff that wish to use it.
