Getting Started


It’s easy to get started with Otago Capture for your Official teaching paper or Event. Otago Capture automates the recording and publishing of audio, the projected screen and also a video feed (if organised in advance) in selected rooms in Dunedin, Christchurch and Wellington. The software also allows users to upload videos from external sources to publish to users.

Otago Capture uses Echo360 software and organises recordings into Sections. If you don’t already have access to a Section you can use our self-service application to request one – If you already have access to a Section you can login to OtagoCapture/Echo360 and get started.
