Install and use Kaltura Personal Capture

Kaltura Personal Capture, Indiana University's personal capture solution, is a desktop application that helps you record presentations and screencast using any combination of voice, webcam video, screen action, and PowerPoint slides. Recordings created in Personal Capture can be uploaded and managed alongside other Kaltura content in MediaSpace and/or the Kaltura tools in Canvas (My Media and Media Gallery).

Personal Capture has a maximum recording time of two hours. If you are recording and reach the two-hour mark, Personal Capture will end the recording.
