Mediacentral is UCL's enterprise video portal, helping users to share and stream their media to enhance learning, teaching, research, promotional activities, training and improve communications.
What is Mediacentral
Mediacentral is the UCL online video portal, helping users to enable collaboration by sharing video and audio content through a streaming system that flawlessly works behind the scenes and allowing you to Create, Manage, Deliver and View all your content within an all-inclusive solution.
The system delivers your On-Demand content directly to your audience whether they are on a mobile or a desktop device.
Mediacentral takes the difficulty out of streaming while giving you more control, more engagement, and more ways to communicate – all with less work.
The team are working on a new version of Mediacentral which will be launched in September 2019. There will be a number of key improvements and in particular the ability to caption and subtitle your videos as well as making basic edits to the video file.
Adding video in Moodle
The UCL Moodle Media Resource provides a way of uploading large media files to a central publishing point, this content is stored outside of Moodle and is delivered as streaming media. The function enables UCL staff to create video based assignments which; participants can respond to, safe in the knowledge that their content is secure. Mediacentral servers underpin this facility.
