Welcome to Knowledge Studio!
When you arrive at the Knowledge Studio, you first input the security code for student/guest to the keypad on the wall. (Fig. 1) This information will be provided to you upon making your appointment.
In the studio, there are three rooms (Fig. 2), the main room (middle), the conference room (left) and the video room (right).
1. Main Room
In the main room, there are two PC computers (Fig. 3).
There are also two Mac computers (see Fig. 4) in the main room, please log in as “Guest” to these computers.
Or you might want to learn more about our BC Guidelines, a condensed GPAC clinical guidelines, please click here to visit its homepage on Apple Store.
Note: Because you have logged in as a guest user, your files will be erased when you log out. Remember to save your work onto an external device, such as a memory stick.
2. Conference Room
In the conference room (Fig. 6), you will be able to start a video conference using Movi software. Movi is a desktop video conference meeting tool which enables you to attend UBC Faculty of Medicine sessions.
To start a Movi video conference, you need first to log into the computer with a username and password that will be provided to you.
You will find the Movi icon in the task bar, double click the icon to start the application (Fig 7).
When using the desktop videoconferencing program, please follow these guidelines to enhance the experience for yourself as well as other meeting participants.
- Sit within camera view
- Use a headset with microphone for optimal audio quality and to avoid feedback loops
- Mute microphone when not in use
- Limit the number of open applications to save computer system resources and remember to close email and any instant messaging applications if you are using the presentation mode
- If you have an inconsistent connection that is causing your image/audio to freeze or drop repeatedly, join using the telephone instead
- Do not select the “sign in automatically” option in the desktop Video Conferencing program
- Sign out after every use to conserve licenses and ensure that you and your colleagues are able to sign in when you need the service
3. Video Production Room
We also have access to a live video production studio with NewTek Tricaster (Fig. 8). You can do a live video broadcast or produce a recorded video here. With TriCaster, you can simultaneously produce, live stream, broadcast, project and record HD and SD productions. A single operator or small team can switch between multiple cameras, virtual inputs and live virtual sets, while inserting clips, titles and motion graphics with multi-channel effects (Fig. 9).
