Enterprise Video Platform
The YuJa Enterprise Video Platform saw a number of updates. The Video Platform provides users with better performance with hundreds of simultaneously connected devices, as well as a way to quickly review and filter device schedules. Groups can be created in CampusTube for easy file and folder sharing, and security options for Live Streams were updated.
Other updates include adding remote management tools for Software Capture, along with third-party hardware support for NCast hardware encoders, and customizable API endpoint scopes for API tokens, which allows administrators to create customized tokens for specific APIs. Content owners can also bulk merge to quickly combine multiple videos into a single video without having to launch the editor.
Video Conference Platform
The YuJa Video Conferencing Platform now supports 100 simultaneous video participants, as well as HD webcams and high-definition videos. In addition, users can express themselves and engage with content using emoji responses in live chat. Users can also open a screenshare in a separate tab to enlarge the content.
YuJa Verity for Test Proctoring
YuJa Verity for Test Proctoring now offers users with an improved UI for the Proctoring Results table to view ID verification photos, making verification a simple process. A new quick setup guide for students, a new UI page for unauthenticated students, and student account authentication for proctored sessions all support students and help them use YuJa Verity effectively. Proctors can view sessions in full screen and click IDs within a results table to quickly view a student’s identification photo.
YuJa Engage Student Response System
The YuJa Engage Student Response System is the newest product in YuJa's suite of ed-tech tools. Users now have the option to use live polling for audience engagement. It also allows CSV file support for roster imports, and a Microsoft PowerPoint Ribbon add-on for a streamlined poll integration process.

YuJa Panorama for Digital Accessibility
YuJa Panorama for Digital Accessibility now provides users with a new, direct-access Panorama Platform (in addition to the LTI-only integration). Additionally, YuJa Panorama provides new format support for printed and handwritten math equations, including over a dozen image types from short answer to handwritten, printed, diagrams, tables and more. Math equations can now be read aloud to students using screen readers, including equations embedded in documents and included in images.
YuJa Himalayas for Data Archiving and Compliance
YuJa Himalayas for Data Archiving and Compliance users can now view and download individual group recordings for Microsoft teams.
