Live Steaming Lectures and Seminars

All lectures in Lecture Theatre 1 and 2 will be scheduled to live stream and record automatically, based on the Celcat Timetabling Schedule.

Each room will have a desktop connected to the cameras and audio system in that room.

To live stream or record an ‘unscheduled’ session:

Login to Planet eStream

Click on Tools on the top menu and select Room Capture. You will then see a list of rooms (as above)

Each room will show 2 options: Quick Record or Scheduled Overview. Scheduled Overview will display the list of scheduled events in that room.

Select Quick Record and yo wil be presented with another dialogue box which you will need to add some details to:

Title – Prefix the recording with the Course details (BA1, MAHA, etc) and then add a title that clearly describes whatthe session is. This will make it easier for students to find the recording later

Record – Select  ‘Now’, ‘in 5 mins’, ‘in 30 mins’ or  ‘in 1 hour’ as required  or add a custom amount

For: select ’30 minutes’, 60 minutes’ 90 minutes or custom amount

Action: Choose Record and Broadcast or Record Only. There is no option to Broadcast only at the moment

Exclude Sources: The list of configured sources are displayed. Its unlikely you will need to change this setting

Click on Confirm.


Links to the live broadcast and subsequent recordings will be posted onto the relevant course pages on the VLE



Using projectors at Vernon Square 

For seminar rooms 1,2, 7-9:

Power up the projector first by pressing the ‘ON’ button on the remote control.  The remote is normally on the table or one of the window sills.

As the projector warms up (which takes 30 seconds), the ‘Panasonic’ logo displays, then a blue splash screen with a countdown. If the projector has gone or goes into standby, press the ‘ON’ button once to reawaken it, and wait for the blue splash screen to reappear (be patient!).

Connect your laptop to the HDMI cable (which also carries audio to the speakers in the room) – it issues from the connection point on the back wall of the room.

Attached to the cable are adapters for MAC and PC laptops with USB-C or mini display ports.

To switch the projector off, press the ‘OFF’ button on the remote control twice.

For seminar rooms 3-6:

Follow the same procedure. After pressing the ‘ON’ button on the remote control, the screen will start powering up. You will see a blue display with a ‘Philips’ logo. You can then connect your computer to the HDMI cable directly or through one of the adapters provided.

To adjust sound volume, press the buttons on the sound bar below the screen.

MAC USERS – there is a separate document outlining what to do if after connecting up no picture appears on the projection screen. Mac Users
