The SafeCapture HD (SCHD), Echo360 PRO, and Echo360 POD are dedicated capture appliances designed to be used for ad hoc or scheduled recordings in dedicated teaching venues with static (and sometimes complex) Audio/Video setups. These appliances can capture full-motion output from a variety of devices, including document cameras, electronic whiteboards, and computers (PC and Mac).
Echo360 supports the following standards with respect to recording devices (cameras) for use with Echo360 capture appliances:
|Input Format||Supported Standard|
|VGA||VESA DMT, GTF, CVT|
|DVI||VESA DMT, GTF, CVT|
In general, we recommend purchasing one device for testing purposes in a classroom environment prior to making any large orders.
For detailed information on the supported formats for Display, Video and Audio input see:
USB cameras (POD only)
The Echo360 POD supports the use of USB cameras (plugged into Channel 2 of the appliance). Besides the two listed below, the POD generally supports the use of any UVC (USB video class) cameras that provide 1280x720 resolution with 30 fps (frames per second) and MJPEG. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USB_video_device_class for more information on UVC.
The POD, however, is smart enough to be able to detect whether the camera plugged into the USB port is compatible and will let you know if it is not. See Using USB Cameras with the POD for more information.
