Details about our devices:
|Video cameras|| |
Different cameras are available depending on the range of requirements. There are handy and easy-to-use consumer cameras, e.g. for film study projects, as well as professional cameras for broadcasting special events or demanding film documentation. All cameras have an image output to transmit the image to a beamer in the lecture hall, for example. A visualiser is also available for displaying three-dimensional objects and documents on the beamer.
Recommended accessories: tripod, external microphone if necessary

|Projector||Different projectors are available for different projection sizes and resolution requirements. A distinction is made between WXGA resolution (1280x800px) and FullHD (1920x1200 16:10 or 1920x1080px, 16:9). All projectors have an analogue VGA connection, and the current models have a digital HDMI connection, which has a better picture quality.|

Thanks to the scissor joints on the back, the projection screen is ready for immediate use. The screen is infinitely adjustable in height. Three transport handles and four castors make the screen extremely flexible and easy to transport.
Livestreaming und Recording
Streaming encoders are available for the live transmission of events, which can be operated by the experienced user after a short introduction. Currently, cameras and laptops can be connected to the encoders via HD-SDI and HDMI. Feeding of VGA signals may be possible on request. It is only possible to transmit "broadcast formats", for example 720p and 1080p (Full HD). Unfortunately, conventional computer resolutions cannot be transmitted (1024x768, 1280x800,...).
For internal university transmissions (from lecture theatre to lecture theatre), reception can be done via a web player. For live transmissions with many recipients, an external streaming provider must be used.

|Audio systems||Depending on the size of the event, various audio systems are available. These consist either of passive loudspeakers, separate amplifiers and a separate mixing console or of active loudspeakers in which amplifiers, a small mixing console and radio microphone receivers are already integrated. They can be operated by technically experienced staff after a short briefing.|

If more than one microphone is to be connected to an audio system, it is necessary to use a mixing console to combine the existing signals. This mixer mixes the signals of its inputs, e.g. microphones or PC sound, and outputs them at its outputs, e.g. to the speakers or a recording device. Depending on the purpose, different mixing consoles are available, which differ in number and type of inputs and outputs, range of functions and complexity.

Microphones are essentially divided into radio and wired microphones. Radio microphones, which are also available in most lecture halls, are generally used for transmitting speech at events. There are either the well-known handheld transmitters, which combine microphone and radio transmitter, or pocket transmitters, which are connected either to a headset or a clip-on microphone. A neck strap is available for both versions. One radio receiver is required for each radio microphone. All receivers use two antennas each to ensure the best reception quality. Several receivers can be connected to each other via an antenna splitter to share a common pair of antennas. Directional antennas can be used to further improve reception quality and range in large venues.
Wired microphones are connected to the audio system using so-called XLR cables. Special microphones are also available for use with a camera. Both radio and wired versions are available.
