Like most institutions, the University of Arizona added lecture capture technology through small scale experimentation, starting at the departmental level. But in just a few years, lecture capture had taken hold and UA faculty were producing some 2TB of video every week and over 30,000 hours each year. Further complicating the situation was the wide variety of lecture capture systems from different vendors used on campus, each using different appliances and hardware, each providing different capabilities, and each requiring different levels of support.
