Create Live Stream from UC Personal (Echo360's Desktop Capture)

Live Stream using Universal Capture - Personal

Important information:

  • You MUST select a section for the capture; Saving your Capture is disabled when LIVE Streaming is toggled
  • You may need to allow a minute or two for the live stream to begin after the recording starts.
  • Universal Capture will automatically create a new class in the course/section that you choose.

UC - Personal does not allow you to set a custom Capture Duration, the default live stream length is 4 hours. When you start an ad hoc live stream, the UC will keep recording and streaming until you stop it, you close the application, or the 4 hour limit is reached.

How do I know my recording is live?

  • A red LIVE badge will appear in under your name on the software.
  • A green LIVE badge will appear next to the new class in the class List.
