Access Universal Capture
Last Updated: Apr 26, 2019 09:59AM EDT

This article applies to:  Echo360 Instructors

Universal Capture (UC) is a cross-platform, simple capture interface that is accessible across both hardware and software, creating a consistent user experience across all capture mediums. Because it has an easy to use interface, instructors can easily access UC, login, and use it to create or control captures as needed.

The Universal Capture: Classroom software allows for remote monitoring of the computer, remote control of recordings and, if enabled, allows the application to be accessed from anywhere using the Online interface.

Universal Capture: Personal

Universal Capture: Personal is only accessible through the installed desktop application using a shortcut or:

  • Via the Applications menu on a Mac, as shown in the below figure.

  • Via the Start menu on a Windows PC, as shown in the below figure.

Universal Capture: Classroom

Universal Capture: Classroom is considered a managed device (because it must be assigned to a Room and be in contact with the Echo360 server), therefore, it is not only accessible through the desktop application directly, but also via UC: Device and UC: Online. Typically, when referring to Classroom mode in the online help articles, we are specifically referring to the desktop application which is accessible through a desktop shortcut or:

  • Via the Applications menu on a Mac, as shown in the below figure.

  • Via the Start menu on a Windows PC, as shown in the below figure.

Universal Capture: Device

Universal Capture: Device is accessible for any UC-capable device (Universal Capture: Classroom, or a Pro/Pod with the Universal Capture beta enabled) over a local connection by navigating to the IP address or domain name for the device in your web browser. 

NOTE that the Universal Capture: Device interface is only accessible if single sign-on (SSO) for devices has been enabled for your Institution and is configured on the device. Contact Echo360 support for more information on Device SSO.

Universal Capture: Online

Universal Capture: Online is accessible for any UC-capable device (Universal Capture: Classroom, or a Pro/Pod with the Universal Capture beta enabled) over an internet connection by clicking Universal Capture on the Echo360 Home, as shown in the below figure.

NOTE that you can click Universal Capture to access UC: Online for a Universal Capture capable Room at any time, even if a recording is ongoing.
