End of Support for Classroom Capture
August 30th, 2019: The download links for CCAP will be removed from the platform. This is also the end of support date for these applications in Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA). While the applications will likely continue to work for the rest of the year, there will be no support available. Clients in the EMEA region should plan a full transition to Universal Capture before this time. Clients in other regions can continue to use existing CCAP installations but will no longer have the ability to download it.
January 15th, 2020: This date marks both the end of life and the end of support for these applications globally. As of this date, CCAP will cease to work with the Echo360 platform due to enhancements in the capture pipeline that will only work with Universal Capture. It is of utmost importance that all Echo360 clients complete their transition to Universal Capture by this time.
Classroom Capture is a Windows-only application that can be installed on a classroom PC and used as a capture device for recording lectures and other classroom activities. Because it has an easy to use Windows interface, instructors can easily launch the application and use it to perform ad hoc captures, or control scheduled captures as needed.
Classroom Capture is accessed through the Start menu, as shown in the below figure, or may be available via a shortcut icon located on the desktop.
If there is a recording pending for the room, the Classroom Capture option in the Start menu also provides that information, as shown in the below figure.
BEST PRACTICE: Do not attempt to start an ad hoc capture within five minutes of the next scheduled capture. The scheduled capture requires a "preroll" period before it can begin, and any currently running ad hoc capture will be automatically stopped prior to the next scheduled capture.
