31 Chapter 2: Setting Up a Mediasite Recorder Figure 2-7: Recorder Mediasite Recorder Options Dialog Box (Image Processing) Adjust the image advance settings The image advance settings include the maximum image scan rate, image change sensitivity and the use of stabilization. The image scan rate allows you specify how often the Recorder will scan for new images. The image change sensitivity allows you to specify how much images must differ to cause the Recorder to send a new image. When you record your presentation, you want to capture the most important events. However, some sources (a digital white board, a document camera, a presentation with animation) generate a lot of events. For these sources you may want to reduce the Recorder s sensitivity to image changes to avoid capturing unimportant events. Use stabilization to have the Recorder wait until an image is stable before it advances to the next image. When you use stabilization and decrease the image scan rate, the Recorder will scan less often. However, it will provide clearer slides. 1. From the Tools menu, select Options. The Mediasite Recorder Options dialog box appears. 2. Click the Image Advance tab. 3. Drag the Maximum Image Scan Rate slider to the right to increase the rate (frames per second) the Recorder will scan for new images. Drag the slider to the left to decrease the image scan rate. 4. Drag the Image Change Sensitivity slider to the right to increase the Recorder s sensitivity to image changes. Drag the slider to the left to decrease the Recorder s sensitivity. Note: Sonic Foundry recommends leaving the Image Change Sensitivity at the default value (90).
