Mediasite Desktop Recorder (MDR) allows you to record presentations, learning modules and tutorials in the comfort of your office or home on a PC or MAC workstation.

MDR can record whatever is on your computer screen (such as PowerPoint presentations, demonstrations, websites etc.), your voice and the video from your web-cam (if desired). The quick and easy-to-use software allows you to upload your recordings to the Deakin Video environment to perform web editing tasks and update publishing options.

Creating a new presentation

Audio Only – Audio from a microphone

Note:

  • Do not change the default destination folder for your computer in the settings option.
  • We recommend you perform a one minute test recording prior to your actual capture to check your screen resolution is optimal for your chosen presentation and microphone/volume levels are adequate.
  • When capturing a PowerPoint presentation ensure text is readable and images and graphics in your slides are of high quality and can be seen in a lower resolution.
  • When recording audio, it is recommended that a microphone headset is used.
