NOTE: This only applies to media files on video.vcu.edu and the server will be decommissioned due to hardware failures. Most videos on video.vcu.edu are old and of poor quality by today’s standards.  As such there will not be an automatic migration to Kaltura. You must retrieve your files from video.vcu.edu before June 30, 2016.  Once you have your files, you can migrate at any time.
