Migrating content from Kaltura to UICapture

After reviewing Kaltura's usage data over the past few years, consulting with multiple governance and advisory groups, and conducting a review of technical requirements with several Kaltura users, it was found that features in UICapture (Panopto) can provide similar functionality. UICapture has proven to be reliable, with a higher adoption rate at Iowa and includes video quizzing, captioning, instructor-facing analytics, as well as options for non-academic uses.

On December 28, 2021, the University of Iowa will shut down the central Kaltura service. Video content currently located in Kaltura will be migrated to UICapture. Content from Kaltura will be migrated to UICapture over the fall 2021 semester. Any new audio/video content should be added to UICapture.

For more information, check out Kaltura - Migration to UICapture.

What is UICapture (Panopto)?

UICapture, powered by Panopto, can create digital recordings of audio, video, and screen content via a software application that is installed on either Windows, macOS, iOS, or Android. UICapture records this content, processes it and can make the content available as streamed presentations, downloadable audio and video podcasts. UICapture content can be easily linked to ICON courses or other web sites.

ICON and UICapture are fully integrated. This allows faculty and students immediate and simple access to lecture capture and other multimedia tools.
