concurrent users on standard server hardware. eLecture Server comes with Administration Console allowing lecturer or
administrator managing lectures, lecturers and students. The eLecture Server
also includes Unreal Media and Archival servers for broadcasting and recording

prefers it over web-based interface.
eLecture comes with built-in support for English, Spanish, Italian, French,
Russian, German, Portuguese, Chinese and Japanese languages; other
languages can be easily added via language files that come with the software.
eLecture is a truly Unicode system.
Up to 3 audio/video feeds can be configured with each lecture;
Unicast and Multicast delivery methods are supported to serve LAN and
Internet students. All popular software and hardware live encoders that encode H264 video and AAC/MP3 audio,
can be used as live sources for eLecture: Unreal Live Server; Flash encoders such as FMLE and Wirecast; RTSP IP cameras;

The lectures can be scheduled at a particular time or periodically; limits
