Listen Again Upgrade

The number of CPU cores available to process Listen Again recording is controlled by the licence purchased from TechSmith and we currently hold a 1-core licence. For next semester this should be upgraded to a 3-core licence — this does not change the time the server takes to deal with each individual recording but it does mean it can process 3 in parallel, effectively tripling performance.

The upgrade will mean that recordings are processed within 24 hrs unlike this semester when some recordings were taking almost 48hrs to get processed (unless there is huge increased in the number of recordings but evidence from previous years indicates only a modest uplift from autumn to spring semesters)

This change has no effect on how the software is used from teaching spaces/desktops.
