Setup Web Cam, Microphone and Presentation


With Kaltura Capture open you will see a red button followed by three icons.

  • (1) Monitor Input: This option will allow you to select which monitor you want to capture while you record. Click the down arrow to the right of the icon to reveal what options you have. If you have multiple monitors, you will be able to select which monitor you want to capture while recording by clicking in the drop down box under the monitor previews. Whichever monitor you have chosen should appear in the preview window. The additional options you have are to record the Full Screen or a specific area. For ease of use go ahead and select Full Screen. 

  • (2) Webcam Input: The next icon to the right will be your webcam or other video input device (a second monitor, maybe you have multiple webcams, etc.) Click the down arrow to the right of the icon to reveal what options you have there. You will want to ensure your webcam is selected and you should see a preview of the webcam feed. Position yourself and the webcam, so you're fully framed in the picture. 

  • (3) Audio Input: If you have multiple microphones you will want to ensure you select the correct one in the drop-down selection box. You should see the inside of the microphone icon move up and down as it detects sound. 
  • Now that all the hardware is set up in Kaltura Capture you will want to open your PowerPoint presentation and set it to presentation mode. If you have multiple monitors make sure, your presentation is in full-screen mode on the monitor you are recording.

  • We suggest going through your presentation at least once without recording as the final practice.
