Selecting Video Cameras
Similar to microphones, most video cameras that are handled properly by your operating system should work with the Tegrity recorder. Tegrity supports QuickTime™ (on Mac) and DirectShow™ (on PC) compatible video input devices. Most webcams, camcorders, and capture cards are compatible with both frameworks, and compatibility of a particular product can be confirmed using a supplierís website or product documentation.

In addition, some of our clients have configured IP cameras to work with a DirectShow source filter so that Tegrity can record the video stream.
