Welcome to Echo360 at the University of Kentucky. UKIT would like to help you use Echo360 personal capture on your PC and learn more about the addition of Echo360 lecture capture to specific rooms on campus.
Echo360 personal capture will enable you to simultaneously record the audio from a USB microphone or webcam, the content on the computer screen and a webcam of yourself. These recordings can be edited and saved on your computer for playback. The captures can also be published as Rich Media Flash files as well as an MP3 podcast and M4V Video podcast, Echo360 scheduler required for publishing.
Echo360 personal capture is available for download from download.uky.edu.

Echo360 lecture capture will enable you to simultaneously record the audio of your lecture, the content on the computer and video of the instructor at the podium. Echo360 records the VGA sgnal in the classrooms. A few classrooms have HDMI cables for connecting laptops, HDMI connections are not recorded by Echo360. Captures can be scheduled to begin and end automatically or you can make an ad hoc recording while in the room. The captures are published as Rich Media Flash files as well as an MP3 podcast and M4V Video podcast. The image below is the rich media publishing end result.
Departmental and college IT support staff need to be trained to schedule Echo360 lecture captures. Echo360 is for University Faculty and Staff use only. Files published through Echo360 lecture capture can be viewed for two weeks beyond final exams of each semester. At that time all files from that semester will be purged. You will have 14 days after the original recording to make any modifications or simple edits to the recording. You also will have the option of downloading those files within the 14-day time period for advanced editing or saving to a media format of your choice. Downloading of those files will be the responsibility of you or your department.
