Hybrid Events

Lecture rooms with enhanced video and audio technology are available for hybrid courses. All rooms with this equipment are equipped in such a way that external parties can be connected to the room as participants in discussions or as spectators.

We are responsible for the technical support of the rooms and are also there for you in the event of faults.Lecture rooms with enhanced video and audio technology are available for hybrid

Equipment and Important Notes

The equipment includes as standard:

  • A camera, which can be directed in such a way that the entire group of participants or only the speaker can be recorded.
  • (depending on the size of the room and the acoustics) two to four room microphones that can record contributions from the entire room in uniformly good quality.
  • Two speakers for playback of media or external input
  • A touch display (approximately 86 inches in size) with a wall mount or on a mobile stand, depending on the room situation. The display can be used as a whiteboard with its own software. The software can be opened via the "burger menu" on the right and left of the display.
  • A technology cabinet with a control panel for selecting the screen sources (your own laptop or integrated computer) and for selecting the camera position.
  • An integrated computer (included in the technology cabinet) with JGU standard installation, which can be used for existing video conferencing solutions (BigBlueButton via browser, MS Teams) as well as presentations or other programs.
  • An USB-C port for connecting the LeViA technology to an (own) external device. This is preferable to the connection via HDMI + USB-A.
  • Mobile equipment (to be borrowed from the caretaker, depending on the location):
    • Wireless keyboard to operate the built-in computer.
    • Screen pen for touch display
    • HDMI cable.

Possible Scenarios and Important Notes

Scenario 1: The speakers are in focus. The camera is directed at what is happening on and around the whiteboard and touch display. The camera perspective allows the recording of lecture-oriented teaching and learning scenarios. External participants are primarily connected as spectators. The touch display serves as a presentation medium as well as a projection surface for connected participants.

Scenario 2 : The participants are in focus. The camera is directed at what is happening in the room. The camera perspective allows discussion-oriented teaching and learning scenarios to be recorded. External participants can easily enter into the dialog. The touch display serves as a presentation medium as well as a projection surface for connected participants.

Scenario 3: The speakers are in focus. The camera is focused on what is happening on and around the blackboard. The camera perspective allows the recording of lecture-oriented teaching and learning scenarios with blackboard writing. The touch display serves as a projection screen for participants who are thus in the field of vision of the lecturer together with the presence group.

In all scenarios, the arrangement of chairs and tables can be changed as desired. The installed hardware is fixed and cannot be changed in the room.

Important Notes

  • When using the built-in computer, a wireless mouse (non-Bluetooth) is recommended as a replacement for the laser pointer.
  • Digital pointers cannot be used because they require the installation of special software that is not approved by our IT.
  • If you want to use special software for your course (e.g. SPSS, "digital pointers"), please use a separate terminal.
  • Programs from the JGU Software Center or the ZDV applications can be installed automatically on the integrated computer.
  • Only the picture is transmitted via the HDMI cable, whereas the sound is transmitted via the USB cable.

Duty to Inform and Personal Rights

1. Registration for video.uni-mainz.de
In order to record in the LARA lecture halls, you have to register once at https://video.uni-mainz.de with your JGU account.
More information
https://www.zdv.uni-mainz.de/panopto-streaming-video-server/
2. Information obligation
Recording
  • Everyone present in the lecture hall, both audience members and other presenters must be informed BEFORE the recording takes place that a recording is taking place.
  • If students do not want to be recorded, they must avoid the posted camera coverage areas and should not speak up.
  • You must inform those present of how to contact the appropriate privacy officer.
  • To start a recorded session, show an appropriate slide via the beamer. You can use our template for this.
Publication
  • You are obliged to inform all parties involved about the type, place and period of publication.
  • Recordings are made available via the platform video.uni-mainz.de.
  • Access to the recording is exclusively subject to your complete control.
  • You can find out which options are available here in our instructions for recording.
3. Compliance with third party rights
Copyright
Compliance with all copyrights to works captured by the course recording is solely under your control.
Personal rights
  • Every person has the right to his or her own image or likeness, including in course recordings.
  • Under certain circumstances, persons may wish to have images or sound recordings deleted.
  • You are responsible for ensuring that this is done in good time.
Helpful hints:
  • As long as a recording is only published in password-protected areas of the University of Mainz and/or only the participants of your course have access to it, you should generally not expect any problems with copyright violations or recourse claims.
  • As with a written publication, cite sources correctly and do not use third-party works "just" to visually enhance your presentation.
  • Familiarize yourself with the editing options for your recording so that you can delete problematic recordings or passages in a timely manner.
  • If you are unsure, contact the Legal Affairs Office of the University of Mainz
