Our team can help evaluate your existing hardware to ensure that it can perform and meet your lecture recording needs. Cattura Video also sells Magewell capture cards to make the process even easier.
Install Capture Cards
Once your hardware is put together you will need to decide on what type of capture inputs you need.
