Panopto’s video platform enables businesses and universities to make video a central part of their learning initiatives.
Within the enterprise, Panopto is used by talent development teams to record and live stream instructor-led training. Marketing and engineering teams use our software to share product updates and industry insights with the sales force. Sales reps use Panopto as a social learning tool to share best practices. And IT organizations use Panopto as a corporate YouTube to centrally manage all of their video assets.
Within academic institutions, our software is used by administrators to manage campus-wide video assets and to automate lecture recording. Teachers use Panopto to record flipped classroom videos from their office, home, and the field. Students use our software to access recordings directly from within their LMS, and to record class assignments from their laptops and mobile devices.
Our customers tell us that three things differentiate Panopto from other video platforms:
Ease of use – Panopto was built to take the cost and complexity out of capturing, publishing, and sharing high-quality video presentations. Anyone can simply launch the Panopto software, click Record, present, and click Stop. In minutes, Panopto will create a professional-looking video presentation that can be watched on any device. Our software automatically synchronizes slides and presenter video, creates a table of contents and thumbnails for navigation, and indexes the presenter’s speech and on-screen content for search.
Integrated solution – Panopto is a single, integrated product that includes all of the functionality needed to capture and manage multimedia assets. Our video platform includes: a portal for uploading, storing and managing videos; video capture software for Windows and Mac; integrations with SharePoint, Salesforce, Jive, and learning management systems; mobile apps for iOS and Android; a video editor; video analytics; and a video search engine. Because our product is built in-house, we ensure that every component of the system is thoroughly security tested. In addition, our vertical integration speeds initial deployment and simplifies ongoing maintenance. Finally, our use of modern streaming protocols and existing web caching infrastructure ensures that videos are delivered efficiently across the network.
Inside-Video Search – Panopto includes a unique search engine that makes video content as easy to search as documents and email. When you upload an existing video to your Panopto portal, or record a new video using Panopto’s software for Windows or Mac, our search engine will automatically index all of the words spoken by the presenter and shown on their screen. Panopto users can then search inside the content of any video, and fast forward to the precise moment where a term was mentioned or shown. Forrester Research has recognized Panopto as having the “best support for video search” among video platform providers.
