Installation package


MAC Requirements:

Mac users will need to have OS 10.2 (Sierra) or higher

With the release of macOS 10.14 (Mojave), all applications now require individual user permission to be able to access the Camera and Microphone (a Security and Privacy feature which has long been in effect for iOS).


Further Information on this is available at this link https://support.echo360.com/customer/portal/articles/2954652-allowing-access-to-inputs-in-macos-10-14-mojave-

Currently both the older Personal Capture (PCAP) and the new Universal Capture: Personal can be downloaded however please note that only one can be used at a time.

Effective August 30th, 2019 the downloads for the current Personal Capture software, both Windows and MAC, will be disabled.  This will also mean that there will be no further support from Echo360 regarding any issues that arise from using the older version of PCAP.

Before moving to the new Universal Capture – Personal Capture please be sure that all recordings within the previous version have been published to your Echo360 library as these will not carry across to the new version.
