Additional instructions are available from Kaltura.
To use Express Capture in Kaltura MediaSpace:
Machine captioning is performed automatically on all videos uploaded to Kaltura (video.syr.edu). This process uses automatic machine generated transcription (ASR) that recognizes the words spoken in your video and provides machine-based captions with 75-85% accuracy.
While third party speech-to-text products, such as Otter.ai, exist for live-captioning, ITS recommends that professional captioning be used whenever an accommodation is requested or whenever our policy requires that an event has live captioning.
See Guidelines for CART and ASL Interpreting for more information.
Users can choose to delete captions or transcripts from media.
Kaltura may take a few hours to a day to completely remove captions and transcripts from media files once deleted. Kaltura may take a day or so to completely remove the transcript from media files once deleted. If you delete a caption file, we also recommend that you also delete the corresponding transcript file, and vice-versa.
Media owners can request captions be processed for their videos in additional languages. Supported languages include Arabic, English, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Russian, and Spanish.
The Machine Captioning process takes approximately 24-48 hours. You will receive an email notification when the process if completed.
You can use the Kaltura MediaSpace to download your previously captured and uploaded videos.
In Kaltura, a channel is a collection of videos and other media that can be public or restricted in terms of who can view and contribute media to the channel. Channels are useful for aggregating a large number of videos on the same topic or theme, or for sharing a collection of similar or diverse videos with a specific audience.

Kaltura playlists are static lists of videos that can be accessed within Kaltura or embedded into Blackboard. For others to view videos in your playlists, the videos must be either unlisted or published to a Kaltura category or channel that your audience has permission to view.
To add items to a new or existing Kaltura playlist:
When the media item is added successfully to your playlist(s), you'll see a green verification message (e.g., "Media added to selected playlist(s): Playlist 1 , Playlist 2"). You may add additional items to your playlists at any time.
Kaltura allows users to view the analytics of individual videos they own or co-own. The details include the video’s performance over time, engagement, access by country, and device overview.
