Fully Scheduled Classroom Recording

While in classroom mode, recordings can be fully scheduled so instructors don’t have to do a thing.

Remote Monitoring

Monitor any classroom PC or Mac remotely, even from a mobile device.

Live Streaming

Universal Capture can simultaneously record and live stream high definition video when in online mode so remote learners won’t miss out.

Online and Offline Modes

When recording online, videos are uploaded and processed in real-time for immediate availability. When recording offline, videos will be published when the Mac or PC is next connected to a network.

Smart Input Detection

Universal Capture detects all available recording inputs and can even automatically change inputs mid-recording if one is changed or goes missing.

Accessible User Interface

All Universal Capture functionality is configurable via keyboard navigation for the highest level of accessibility.

Localized in Your Language

The universal capture application is localized for all supported languages in Echo360.

Background Software Updates

Software updates happen in the background with no administrator permissions required.

Mobile

In addition to enabling classroom engagement and video playback, the Echo360 Mobile app enables recording and publishing video from just about anywhere.
