Kaltura Meeting Experiences (Newrow) Administrator's Guide

This guide is intended for Kaltura Mediaspace and Kaltura Applciation Framework applications administrators that intend to use the Kaltura Meeting Experience (Newrow) software to create and manage Real Time Rooms.

To configure the Kaltura Newrow module

  • Login to the MediaSpace admin page (<MediaSpace site Url>/admin) and navigate to the Newrow module.
    All  configurations and account creation processes from the Newrow integration are configured automatically by enabling the module.
  • Within the module settings you can choose to open the Newrow Real Time Room in a new browser tab by setting the newrowOpenInNewTab to Yes. If set to No,  the Newrow Real Time Room will open within the Kaltura page as an embedded virtual classroom.

When the Newrow module is enabled, all users can enter the Newrow Real Time Room from the Media Gallery/Channel. A 'Launch Live Room' button is displayed next to the 'Add Media' button. You have the ability to control if the button is displayed by default or not.

Please contact your Katlura representative to enable the Newrow module if it is not displayed in your MediaSpace application.
