myRVC Web App

myRVC is newly developed by MTPC's RVC team. It is a web app optimized for mobile phones which enables users to check real-time status of their RVC recording anytime and anywhere. The status reflects the flow of RVC: 1. “Scheduled”; 2. “Recording”; 3. “Processing”; 4. “Viewable” or 5. “Cancelled”. Users can confirm video capturing if status is “Recording” or view their videos directly via the web app if the status is “Viewable”. Simply access “https://myrvc.ust.hk” to keep track of your RVC status.
