Service description

Unitube is a collection of services for producing and publishing videos on your own, consisting of four tools: the Studio, Uploader, the Lecture Recording Rooms and the Viewer. The Unitube Studios are intended for the production of video recordings by university staff using the studio’s equipment. Recordings produced in the studio can be shared directly to the Unitube Viewer intended for playing the recordings. Also video recordings produced elsewhere can be uploaded to the Viewer. The videos produced in the Studio may also be exported for later editing.

The Unitube Uploader is intended for the publication and administration of finished recordings. The Unitube Lecture Recording Rooms, on the other hand, consist of equipment designed for educational use for the recording of lectures and similar events. The Unitube Lecture Recording Room service may be used in the lecture rooms listed on the Unitube Helpdesk page (see the link below).

The Unitube Viewer and Uploader may be used by all university students and staff. The Unitube Studio and UniTube Lecture Recording Room services are only provided for university staff. Students may utilise these services when their teacher is present.
