Integration between Cbox video capture appliances and Panopto provides customers with an automated workflow for recording and streaming multi-source lectures and presentations.
Seattle/Santa Clara, May 23, 2017 — Panopto and Winnov today announced a strategic partnership that brings together Panopto’s video content management system and Winnov’s Cbox family of appliances. The product integration provides organizations with an automated workflow for capturing, publishing, and streaming multi-source lectures and business presentations.
Winnov Cbox creates multiple 1080p recordings that work in concert with Panopto’s immersive multi-source video player, enabling organizations to capture high quality, multi-camera presentations and events with the click of a button.
Through the partnership, Cbox recordings are automatically uploaded to Panopto, where they’re encoded for playback on any device. The recordings are also indexed for inside-video search, enabling viewers to find and fast-forward to any word spoken or shown on-screen by presenters.
The integration is based on the Universal Capture Specification (UCS), a simple, XML-based format for describing video files and collections so that they can be centrally managed and streamed to any device. With Cbox support for the UCS, multi-source recordings along with their associated metadata, such as title, description, and table of contents, can be seamlessly ingested into Panopto. This process automatically enhances video search and navigation while minimizing post-production time and costs. On-demand recordings are often available just minutes after a presentation ends.
“Our Cbox family is built to capture the widest range of audiovisual equipment and presentation devices with enterprise-grade reliability,” said Olivier Garbe, CEO of Winnov. “Now, with Panopto, we can provide our customers with an easy, automated workflow for managing those enriched multi-source recordings and efficiently streaming them to anyone on any device.”
“Panopto and Winnov share the belief that video capture and publishing should be a streamlined process that minimizes post-production costs and time to availability,” said Eric Burns, co-founder and CEO of Panopto. “Through the use of the Universal Capture Spec, the multi-source recordings and extensive metadata captured by Cbox can be ingested into Panopto in full fidelity. The result is a more immersive viewing experience that goes far beyond simple, picture-in-picture video playback.”
