About the iStream Portal retirement

The iStream Portal, Indiana University's service for delivering some academic recordings, will be retired in 2017. Kaltura has been selected to replace the iStream Portal and is currently available to all IU students, faculty, and staff. Kaltura offers a robust and flexible environment for managing video recordings for a variety of purposes, and can be used for instruction via direct integration with Canvas.

Note:
This retirement affects only the iStream Portal, which is a viewing and retrieval site for recordings made by iStream. The streaming and recording service named iStream will continue to be available. For more, see At IU, what is iStream?

Timeline

The transition from the iStream Portal to Kaltura will move through the following phases:

  • Read-only phase (January 1 - December 31, 2017): During this period, new recordings will be delivered to Kaltura. Archived content will continue to be available at the iStream Portal. You will be able to access and download previously created recordings, but will be unable to deliver new content to the iStream Portal.
  • iStream Portal fully retired (January 1, 2018): The iStream Portal will no longer be available, and you will be unable to log in or retrieve your content.
