What’s the difference between Software and Hardware?

In the instance of hardware, Cattura Video can control everything pertaining to the hardware environment to maximize the true potential of Cattura Lecture Captures. While on the other hand software offers the mobility we all would like. Quality vs. Mobility, In-depth capture creation vs. Ease of use those are just some of the differences separating hardware and software. To demo either the hardware or the software to find out which one works best for you please contact us.

Where do my videos go after I have recorded them? 

Software: At the end of each capture the videos will be automatically stored to a default location we have chosen for our app. You can play the recording, delete, or publish it.  Downloading videos will automatically save to your Downloads folder.

Hardware: Your template will need to have Storage selected in the Publishing section so your capture is saved to the local hard drive. The videos will be available to view, download, publish or delete within the Manage section of our UI.If you choose to only Publish the capture, then it will be stored to the selected publisher.

I am not technically inclined. Will I be able to use your products with little difficulty?

What are these different encoding preset settings? Which one do you recommend to people not versed in the AV world? 

Check out this article here. The article talks about different presets in simple terms to allow you the user to determine which one works for them. Since no two setups will be the same we can’t recommend any one preset across the board.

The software won't load at all on Windows, I double-click on it and it doesn't do anything.

Please right click on the icon and select Run as Administrator. 

I unplugged my webcam during recording and now I have a stutter in my audio, how can I stop that?

When you unplug your webcam, try to remember to turn your webcam (and your audio if you're recording sound through it) off before unplugging it. The audio stutter will stop if you turn the sound off, wait a moment, and then turn it back on; this works even during recording sessions.
