CS 473: Video setup

For the first time since 1999, I am teaching an algorithms class in a room that does not have video-capture hardware built in. Here's the setup that I'm using to record the videos myself. Thanks to several people for input, especially Matt West and Luke Olson.

My setup is considerably less sophisticated than Erik Demaine's, and this shows in the quality of the resulting videos, but I'm deliberately aiming for simplicity and convenience over quality. My main design goal to do everything myself with equipment I can easily carry in my laptop bag: a Macbook Pro, an iPad Pro, a power cable, a Lightning-to-USB cable, and an Apple Pencil. Altogether the in-class setup and capture adds only a few minutes of effort; processing the video files after class takes a bit longer.
