Universal Capture is a cross-platform application that can be installed on a classroom computer in Classroom mode or on a personal computer in Personal mode and is used as a capture device for recording lectures and other classroom activities. Because it has an easy to use interface, instructors can easily access/launch the interface, log in, and use it to create or control captures as needed. The same Universal Capture UI is now available on appliances as well (Pro and Pod), creating a consistent user experience across all capture mediums.
Classroom mode of Universal Capture allows for remote monitoring of the computer, remote control of recordings and, if enabled, allows the application to be accessed from anywhere using the Cloud.
The Universal Capture desktop application can be launched either using 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.
