Can you flip a recording horizontally automatically for Learning Glass

We have purchased a Learning Glass (https://www.learning.glass/) which we want to use with Panopto. Is there any way I can flip recordings horizontally to ensure writing is legible to the viewer?

In an ideal world, we would like to create a Learning Glass folder in which any video placed in the folder, would be flipped automatically before being shared on a wider basis.

We essentially are trying to avoid that step of having to throw a recording into an alternative video editor and then re-upload to Panopto.

Any discussion around this would be most welcome,

Shaun

  • We looked at that same installation too. Our main concern was the actual "operation" of this unit. There is no "plug & go" operation, it requires some manual steps. There is one model that comes with "everything" (hardware and software, the most expensive one) but I am not sure it automatically flips the video! Alternatively, we are using the OneButtonStudio+ with the Wacom tablet to annotate the presentation during the video recorder. It fulfills the same goal. It is really a preference issue, some people want to write on the board, some on the tablet.

  • There isn't anything that I am aware of in the Panopto UI, but if you aren't using Panopto to record you could set up a workflow using FFMPEG (or something similar) to reencode the video prior to it going up to Panopto. You could even try to work in the Panopto Drop Folder app (https://github.com/Panopto/WatchFolderService) to try to automate from PC to Panopto.

    I'd say for situations like this, having something available in the Panopto desktop recorder would be great. I am thinking of a "flip video" button next to the primary video preview or something like that.

  • I would be nice to have it in Panopto, either in the recorder or in the editor. Right now we are using this software together with their capture card: http://www.magewell.com/usb-capture-utility-v3

  • @Mads Larsen and does the Magewell software reverse the image?

  • It's one of my colleagues who uses it, so I do not know how good it is, however, he has not complained, so assume it works fine. I can try to ask him if you are interested.


    I found this on their website
