We have successfully pushed our update to all instances residing in Canada and European Union. This update provides in-depth Live Stream statistics, new customizations for the Canvas LTI 1.3 integration, a new Sub-Admin Captioner role, consent forms workflows, our new Facial Analysis tool, and much more. This will be released to the United States zones next Friday.
- View Real-Time Live Stream Statistics (Beta)
We have introduced a new Live Stream tab within Usage & Analytics that provides real-time live stream statistics across Hardware Hub, Software Capture, and RTMP-initiated live streams. Content Owners and Administrators are now provided with in-depth knowledge of their live streams, including real-time stream quality, downstream bandwidth, geo-location maps, and viewer statistics. The Live Stream Analytics tab also offers a space to view statistics for past and current live streams, as well as view upcoming events.
- Ability to “Favorite” Documents and Images, as well as, Filter Based On Favorited Items
Content Owners can now “star” documents and images as a favorite item and then use the Visual Search capabilities to search across all Favorited items. We have also provided a Favorite tab within My Media as a single space to view all your Favorite items. We will be extending this capabilities to video content in a subsequent release.
- New “Shared with Others” Tab within My Media
To complement our Shared With Me feature and improve the ability to collaborate on content with others, we have added a Shared with Others capability. This provides you with a single pane view of content that you have shared with other individuals using the Share capability. To learn more about our sharing feature, please click here.
- New Version History Tab for Documents and Images
Content Owners can now view past metadata history, including file renaming, metadata tags, ownership changes, publishing events, thumbnail changes and dozens more.
- Commenting Now Available for all Media Types
To further increase media engagement, we have expanded our commenting capabilities from video-related media to now include many document types such as DOCX, PDF, and PPT. To learn more about this feature, please click here.
- Course Copy Now Also Supports Moodle “Importing Courses” Workflow
In addition to the Moodle Course Copy workflow, we now support the Moodle Import Course workflow to effectively perform course copy of Media Channels, Video Quizzes, and Embedded Videos. To learn more about this feature, please click here.
- Institutions Can Now Send an Electronic Consent Form that Will Record the Recipient’s Response
Institutions that use photos for marketing purposes often have to receive consent from the model within the picture. The new Consent Form tab allows Content Creators to send, review and manage consent forms within a single space. This feature can integrate with the newly introduced Facial Recognition tool that is part of this release. To learn more about this feature, please click here.
- Added Facial Recognition Analysis to Manage Consent Forms
To ensure all recognized faces within a photo have consent forms tied to them, the Automated Facial Recognition tool can scan an existing library of images owned by the institution to see if a consent form exists. To utilize this capability, please contact your Admin to turn this capability on within your Video Platform instance.
- Ability to Generate Reports to Identify Duplicate Content
As institutions expand their media libraries, we now provide a report that identifies duplicate content. Content Owners can choose to manually generate a report or schedule reports on a daily, weekly, monthly, or quarterly basis. To learn more about this feature, please click here.
- Imported Caption Files to the Media Player now Support Bold, Italics and Underline Formatting
We have expanded our caption capabilities by adding formatting tags within VTT, XML and SRT-based caption files to be rendered within our Media Player.
- Improved End-to-End Course Copy Now Supported with LTI 1.3 Integration
Mirroring the Course Copy workflow introduced in the last release for LTI 1.1, the same end-to-end Course Copy that seamlessly transfers content items such as Media Channels, Video Quizzes, and Embedded Videos is supported in LTI 1.3.
- YuJa LTI Link now Available in the Canvas Global Navigation Menu with LTI 1.3 (Optional)
Institutions using Canvas with LTI 1.3 integration can now enable YuJa along the Canvas Global Navigation Menu if they wish to do so.
- Support for Canvas ‘Hidden Tool’ Integration with LTI 1.3
YuJa links can now be hidden through JSON integration, allowing Instructors to only enable links for the courses they desire. To learn how to enable this feature, please click here.
- Browser Capture is Now Able to Recover Interrupted Recordings
If a recording is interrupted or abruptly terminated, the user will be able to recover the recording automatically when re-entering the Browser Capture Studio.
- New Specialized Sub-Admin Role—Caption Editor
To provide Content Creators with more options when creating a sub-admin, we are introducing new roles targeting specific actions for sub-admins. The Caption Editor role is the first to be released, allowing sub-admins to use the Video Editor and Accessibility Tab tools to edit captions for shared videos while preventing this role from making additional changes.
