Attention MediaCAST customers: there is a new upgrade available for your MediaCAST system. MediaCAST version 11.0.36 provides improvements to third party content update/management, TV recording, Kiosk playlists, remote Lecture Capture functions and Media Portal. Additionally, this new update introduces added support for live broadcasts from within Media Portal and the ability to create custom channel icons in IPTV.
The ability to more closely monitor your transcodings is a highly requested feature that has been added with this new update. The new Transcoding Status monitor allows users to see at a glance which transcodings are in progress, which ones are completed and which ones are awaiting further action.
Transcoding is a highly useful tool that allows users to convert older, non-streaming video file types to the new H.264 streaming format. With this format, users enjoy increased compatibility with mobile devices as well as smaller file sizes without reduced quality.
The newest update allows users to stream live broadcasts on their website through the Media Portal or the use of an easy to use embed code created for all video resources. Simply select the stream and start sharing live broadcasts with students, staff, family and the community.
Users who have purchased content from CCC! Video will have access to additional content. Through this new release, supplementary materials from CCC! Video are now included during the initial import of content to the MediaCAST system.
