Web Streaming and Multimedia Publishing Support

Information Technology Services (ITS) is committed to supporting both academic and administrative departments in the use of streaming video and audio technologies. ITS support of streaming media consists of file hosting, file compression, and direct assistance to faculty members seeking to incorporate streaming media into their pedagogy. There are three services to choose from: YouTube via iSpartan, Mediasite, and Web Development Support.

YouTube via iSpartan

University faculty, staff and students can set up a YouTube channel that is connected to their iSpartan (Google Mail) email account. For more information, see our instructions on using YouTube via iSpartan.

You can find a list of official UNCG YouTube channels on the UNCGConnect Social Media Hub.

Mediasite

Mediasite is a video capture, management, and streaming service that is available to University faculty and staff. Mediasite allows users to record, upload, edit, share, and analyze usage of video from anywhere with an internet connection. Mediasite supports both desktop and mobile apps, which means wherever the videos are published, users can view them on any device. The Mediasite Editor allows for easy editing and transition work to be applied to the recordings.

There are currently two distinct methods for capturing video and using Mediasite:

  • Mediasite Desktop Recorder Software
    After accessing My Mediasite via Canvas, faculty and staff can download and use the Mediasite Desktop Recorder, which captures video, slideshows, screencasts and audio lectures. My Mediasite also includes support for mobile devices in the use of recording and uploading video.
  • Mediasite-Equipped Classroom: Bryan 114
    University faculty and staff can request/reserve Bryan 114, which is is equipped with a Mediasite hardware recorder, motion-tracking camera system, HD touch panels and web conferencing capabilities.
