Update to the Media Hopper Create desktop recorder

Kaltura are sunsetting the current desktop recording tool with effect from the 14th of August. This means that after the 14th you will no longer be able to use the previous version of the recording tool and will instead be prompted to download and install the newest version of the software. This is available to users as a direct download from Media Hopper Create, as well as via the Software Centre on managed Windows 10 computers and the self-service portal on managed macOS machines. The latest version of the software brings some enhancements which include:  

  • New cleaner interface with advanced recording options
  • New drawing and annotation tools
  • Easier to customise which inputs will be recorded
  • Faster launch in to PowerPoint presentation recording - just start recording, start your presentation, and go

We have updated our user guidance, which is available at
