LogDepot Conference Appliance

Today, conferences and meetings are rarely one-off or stand-alone events. More and more often they are part of a broader multichannel communication platform. The same is true for courtroom sessions and city or county council meetings but also and more in general for interviews and videoconferencing. With the introduction of LogDepot Conference Appliance (LDCA), Arbor Media introduces a standardized, full automatic and easy-to-use advanced digital webcasting and recording device. By design suitable for multi-lingual operation, creating live streams and Video-on-Demand files for each language separately. 

The LogDepot Conference Appliance is the perfect tool for conference room, courtroom, city hall and county council live webcasting and recording. There are four steps: 

Step 1: Preparing

Prepare your meeting by uploading or entering meeting data like time, room, title, agenda and/or other supplementary data into the remote control dashboard. 

Step 2: Stream & record

Start recording and or streaming conference sessions with the help of the Remote Control Dashboard. Every time you push the Pause or Stop button an individual session is digitally captured and saved. Add speaker names, agenda items or manual annotations if desired. LDCA offers easy integration with several room control automation systems (Crestron, Extron and AMX) and can record in proxy format and high quality. 

Step 3: Reviewing

After recording, review the meeting and prepare for publishing by correcting possible errors and fine tuning data. The Media Board combines audio/video feeds with metadata from microphone conference systems (Televic, Bosch, Taiden and Shure/DIS), room control systems and manual annotations in one user-friendly overview. Searching and eporting is enhanced by features such as 'thumbnail viewing', cue marking options and simple download facilities. 

Step 4: Publishing and viewing

Publish the recorded content to a website, an internal network/portal or long term archive using the Media Board. Use the Player to watch and listen to recorded sessions. Browsing through the material and searching for specific items and/or fragments is easy by the metadata information. Use the Arbor Media Cloud streaming and Video-on-Demand service: ConnectedViews a seamless integration with the LDCA. 


LDCA encodes the incoming sources mainly for two purposes as there are recording of incoming source and live stream generation including metadata. 

LDCA offers a web based management and controlling interface, allowing start-pause-stop control, meeting management, review and publishing tasks. 

LDCA offers a 'record one, publish many' concept. It integrates smoothly in operational architectures for producing recordings and streaming for multiplatform - multipurpose use.
