My Media is the Boston University cloud based video streaming service that allows management of audio visual assets and delivery via streaming media. Students can upload content to MyMedia via their Blackboard courses which have integrated with this service. Faculty and staff can upload content directly at mymedia.bu.edu.

Kaltura is the current external enterprise that encompasses all the features of My Media. While My Media holds the BU Kaltura experience, as well as tutorials and general instruction, official Kaltura documentation is also a useful source for information on its implementation.

The terms My Media and Kaltura will sometimes be used interchangeably throughout TechWeb documentation, but a good thing to remember is that My Media is the Boston University service and Kaltura is the official third-party product used in My Media.
