MediaSpace is a cloud based web service developed by Kaltura which facilitates the conversion and distribution of various audio, video and image media formats. Faculty & staff may upload media content to the MediaSpace server which is then available across various platforms and devices. Once uploaded, MediaSpace will provide links and embed code that you can use to share your media with others. Faculty and staff may decide to share their content publicly or restrict who may see the content. Students are able to view non—public content by logging into the system.  

Within MediaSpace there exists a host of additional features and programs including:

Kaltura Capture combines painless recording, automated publishing, and interactive viewing to enable easy video capture in class, at the office, at home, or on-the-go. 

  • Content creators capture multi-stream recordings of up to three video inputs synchronized with a PowerPoint presentation or screen capture.
  • Viewers can navigate to desired content, search through slide text, switch between video streams, and view picture in picture.

REACH is a video search and accessibility suite offers two different service options, human captioning and ASR machine transcription, which can be used separately or together. Captions ordered directly within the Kaltura interface are automatically delivered and can be edited within the video for quick review and modification.

  • Automated Speech Recognition (ASR) Machine Transcription. With ASR, an algorithm instantly recognizes the words spoken in your video and provides machine-based captions for indexing and search. For when you need searchable, discoverable video, this option handles high volumes, fast. CCSU has an unlimited ASR captioning license.
  • Human captioning can be provided on a case-by-case basis and it is a paid service requiring a funding source for it to be ordered and approved. More information about human captioning will be available soon.

Visit https://mediaspace.ccsu.edu where you can view publicly available media as a guest or login to add content. To view media limited to the CCSU community you may need to login using your CCSU Office 365/email account. The login is available in the upper right hand corner drop down menu.
