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.

You can pause, resume, or stop any Classroom Capture (CCAP) recordings, either ad hoc or scheduled. You can also start a scheduled capture early, or add time to a currently recording capture.

What if the capture or the input is interrupted? If there is an interruption in the capture, such as a power loss, logging out, restarting the computer, device becomes unplugged, etc., CCAP handles these interruptions, showing a popup notification letting you know there has been a problem. Details about how CCAP deals with these are covered in How Classroom Capture Handles Input Interruptions.

To start a scheduled capture early

  1. Click the Windows taskbar icon to open the CCAP window.
    Five minutes before the scheduled capture is slated to start, the CCAP window indicates a pending capture, and includes a Start now button for the upcoming capture.

  2. Click Start now. A five-second countdown appears, after which the CCAP window minimizes and the capture begins.

To add time to a scheduled capture

  1. Click the Windows taskbar icon to open the CCAP window.
    The time remaining in the capture schedule is shown below the preview panes.
  2. To add time to the capture, click Add 10 minutes.

NOTE: You cannot extend a capture into the next scheduled capture. The Time Remaining may increase by 10 minute increments, but the capture will stop several minutes before the next scheduled capture (to allow the system to complete pre-roll for the next capture).
