Announcing the retirement of Panopto and Kaltura
Migration of existing video content
We will be backing up all existing content in Kaltura and Panopto, so nothing will be lost. However, this will result in access to the videos being remove, whether displayed in My Dundee or on a web page. If you want any content moved to the service, we are running an opt-in migration process. This means that by default, content will be archived on 30/08/2019 from both services – only content that have been explicitly requested to be made available in Yuja, will be.

There is very little recent content contained in Kaltura, so we anticipate Panopto to be the larger migration to manage. Most of what is in Panopto is recorded lecture content, which is usually not intended to be available beyond an academic year anyway.
Formal launch of service
When Yuja is made available for users on 23/08/2019, we will issue a statement confirming this. You will then be able to access the service using your university credentials and through My Dundee. The launch will be accompanied by user guidance and information about the new service.
Closure of Panopto and Kaltura as services
On 30/08/2019, we will withdraw access to these services. We will download a final archive of existing content that will be stored internally for at least 12 months, depending on the type of content it is. If you own any content that is archived, we can make it available to you on request (request via help4u)
An exception to this approach is Lecture recordings. The current draft policy on Lecture capture states:
Recordings will typically be kept for one year after the lecture was captured and then deleted. Individual lecturers do have the option to archive and maintain their recordings that might be used by them for legitimate purposes in the future (e.g. as a bad weather back-up).
Going by this, we will start deleting year old lecture recordings (rather than archiving) unless specifically requested not to by the lecturer. Please get in touch with us if you want to keep your lecture recordings.
