Seattle, April 3, 2019 — Extron, the leader in integrated AV solutions, and Panopto, the leading enterprise video platform provider, today announced a strategic partnership to seamlessly integrate Extron’s configurable AV control systems with Panopto’s media capture software and video content management system.
For businesses and universities, the partnership will dramatically simplify the recording and management of presentations, lectures, and events. Starting today, Extron is making available certified drivers for its in-room control systems, which now integrate with Panopto’s video capture software, enabling presenters to start and stop Panopto-compatible remote recorders with a single click. Second, in the coming months, Extron’s SMP (Streaming Media Processors) will also be directly integrated with Panopto, enabling ad hoc and scheduled video streaming from SMP products through the Panopto video content management system. The integration will support live, scheduled and on-demand publishing workflows.
“This is a very exciting time as Extron integrates solutions from our uniquely broad AV product portfolio with Panopto’s powerful enterprise video streaming platform to provide robust turn-key video solutions for the modern classroom and meeting space,” says Casey Hall, Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing for Extron. “Whether it be simple push-button control to hands-off, fully-automated streaming and recording for any environment, we are jointly taking media capture and management to a new level of simplicity for the industry.”
“Extron and Panopto share a belief that AV technologies should simplify how organizations communicate and share knowledge,” says Sean Gorman, Chief Operating Officer of Panopto. “With today’s announcement, we’re taking the next step toward that goal, bringing together Extron’s room control hardware and expertise with the leading video platform for businesses and universities.”
The Extron-Panopto integration will provide the industry’s first unified solution for AV control, media capture, video content management, and delivery.
