Hello,

We are setting up testing center in university, students will use thin clients and connect to virtual desktops to access testing application. There is a need to record exam sessions for every student. Every station(thin clients) will be equipped with usb web cam and we are looking for application that will satisfy our requirements. I need advanced solution. like agents on client devices and centralized management and recording of webcams. all videos should be recorded on network storage.

Do you a time stamp on the file? Is there one camera per workstation or a group monitor? How will recording start be triggered, start test app or movement in the camera field of view?

every station has its usb web cam, and time stamp is needed too. the recording process should be started in one of these ways: predefined time set, centralized manual trigger - record all (or selected) webcams, or when the station is turned on automatically start recording.

The software doesn't specify whether it will work in virtual environments though; might want to contact them.
