USC Keck School of Medicine
“We’re flipping the classroom, one recording at a time,” this is the motto of the Soto Studio run by Gary San Angel inside the University of Southern California’s Keck School of Medicine. The flipped classroom is a highly regarded educational strategy for delivering interactive media into a blended learning environment. The studio is often used to produce high-quality recordings for professors who are preparing to deliver portions of their curriculum through online learning courses. The idea of the flipped classroom is to essentially bring the homework into the classroom and make learning via online tools the homework.

Introducing the HuddleCamHD SimplTrack Line
Lecture Capture with Auto-Tracking
PTZOptics offers auto-tracking capabilities both as built-in features and as software add-ons. However, the latter can be cumbersome in an educational setup, given the need for a dedicated computer to run the software. This leads to the rise of cameras like those from HuddleCamHD that come with built-in auto-tracking capabilities. Among the advancements in this realm, the introduction of dual-sensor auto-tracking cameras stands out.
Understanding Dual-Sensor Auto-Tracking Cameras
At its core, a dual-sensor camera combines two cameras into one intelligent system, vastly enhancing its capabilities. Typically, one camera sensor offers a wide-angle view, providing intelligence to the zoom camera lens. This dynamic allows the camera to make real-time adjustments based on the room’s activities, a feature not present in single-sensor cameras.
Live Streaming School Graduations
Schools are increasingly recognizing the immense value in live streaming graduation ceremonies, a significant milestone in a student’s educational journey. By broadcasting these momentous occasions, educational institutions not only connect with family and friends who may be unable to attend in person but also foster a sense of community and inclusivity. PTZ cameras, with their pan, tilt, and zoom functionalities, are ideally suited for this purpose. Their ability to capture dynamic and comprehensive footage ensures that every graduate’s special moment is highlighted. Advanced features such as auto-tracking and remote control provide professional-grade video quality, allowing viewers to feel as though they are part of the ceremony, no matter where they are located.

Their pan, tilt, and zoom functionalities enable dynamic coverage of fast-paced games, capturing every thrilling moment with precision. Unlike traditional camera setups that may require multiple devices and complex configurations, PTZ cameras provide a cost-effective and efficient alternative. Schools and universities can leverage the value of PTZ cameras to enhance their sports programs, offering fans an immersive viewing experience that feels professional, yet remains within budget.
