Panopto Announces New Migration Incentives for Echo360 Customers

Financial aid, content conversion, and dedicated professional services make it easy for Echo360 customers to switch to a reliable video platform with flexible deployment options, advanced LMS integrations, and industry-leading customer support


SEATTLE, May 8, 2019 — Panopto, the leading video platform provider in higher education, today announced new migration incentives for Echo360 customers. The incentives are part of Panopto’s Echo360 migration program, which consists of a content conversion tool, professional services, complimentary closed captioning, and customized financial aid for customers who commit by September 30, 2019.

Financial Incentives and Complimentary Captioning

For a limited time, Panopto is offering special financial incentives to Echo360 customers.

First, for any university currently engaged in an Echo360 contract, Panopto will provide customized financial aid.

Second, any university that commits to migration before September 30, 2019, will receive $3,000 in complimentary closed captioning services as part of their Panopto subscription. With the increasing focus on accessibility in lecture capture, the offer underscores Panopto’s commitment to ADA and Section-508 compliance.

Convert and Keep Existing Content

Panopto has developed a content conversion tool that automates the migration of Echo360 videos and automatically uploads the converted content to a new Panopto video library. The conversion process maintains the fidelity of presenter video, additional video sources, slide presentations, captions, and edits, and automatically creates a table of contents and thumbnails for navigation.

Institutions around the world have now used the conversion tool to migrate tens of thousands of hours of existing Echo360 content to Panopto.

Professional Migration Services

As part of the conversion process, Panopto offers professional services to assist customers with their transition. The services include conversion of existing Echo360 video files, integrity validation of the converted files, and provisioning of existing Echo360 users within Panopto.
