ReCap Enabled Venues

ReCap enabled venues

ReCap is available in over 200 teaching rooms across Newcastle University and its branch campuses:

How to ReCap-enable my space

ReCap can be provided in any School or Faculty owned teaching rooms and meeting rooms, provided they meet a set criteria. How it is provisioned will depend on the type of space. 

In teaching rooms which are timetabled using Syllabus Plus:

  • ReCap Recorder software will be used, whereby recordings can be scheduled (automatically for lectures) using the University timetable, and will start and stop without any user interaction
  • ReCap will only record digital content from devices connected to the audio-visual system, and the voice of the presenter, it will not record actual video (i.e. talking head) of the presenter

 In any other spaces:

  • ReCap Personal Capture (PCap) software will be used, which requires each user to use their personal My Folder and to manually start and stop recordings
  • Video (talking heads) from any installed webcams will be recorded as standard, alongside any digital content and presenter voice

ReCap software and associated hardware will be provided by NUIT at no cost to the requesting School, Faculty or Service. However they will be responsible for covering all costs associated with procurement of any AV/IT equipment required to upgrade the AV system, and any ongoing equipment maintenance costs and equipment replenishment at end-of-life. 

We will also need you to identify a technical point of contact (usually the person who supports the AV equipment) for us to work with during installation and ongoing support.
