The tele-TASK system is a technology from Hasso Plattner Institute for the recording and transmission of lectures and talks over Internet. Thanks to tele-TASK, every interested party world-wide can gain access to trainings, presentation and events - even live transmission - as well as archived recordings. The contents are accessible over HPI's own portal www.tele-TASK.de and also at iTunes U. For a person on the go, whether it be on the bus, in a waiting room or outside in the park, the time used for acquiring information or learning can be decided flexibly.
In contrast to other solutions, the tele-TASK videos and Podcasts additionally show the respective laptop or board presentation to the audience. The tele-TASK recording system is in a compact box and consists of an especially configured computer on which the recording software is installed ready for use. In addition, the equipment includes video cameras, wireless microphones and all the necessary connection cables. Lectures can be transmitted on the Internet per live stream, as well as subsequently released in a media library.
