We want to install HD IP cameras in our classrooms to record lectures and make them available online.

We are having a hard time finding the right one. Most are geared towards surveillance.

Any recommendations?

Room size: large classroom seating about 70 students

Camera specs required: Audio/in for wireless microphone, 1080p, data transfer over ethernet.

  • What solution did you use? How far does the camera need to be from the teacher? How wide of a scene do you need to record (e.g., width of chalkboard so about 30 feet?) We're building something that might meet your needs, would love to hear what solution you chose.

  • Thank you for the recommendation. Not sure if a Webcam would be suitable... distance and data transfer come to mind. It will be installed on the ceiling/wall of a large classroom a bit away from the lecturer. Also need to have audio in for lecturers microphone.

  • That is a professional package... one of many that I have looked at and the price is accordingly high. I'd rather focus on just a camera at the moment.
