When we created Panopto, we set out to build something different from other video platforms.
When other services still required massive hardware investments, we created a simple, software-based, end-to-end video solution.
While other services still mandated fixed recording setups with proprietary hardware, we made it possible to capture video from virtually any device you can plug into a laptop.
While other services were content to limit presenters to a single video stream in standard definition, we opened the doors to enable multiple simultaneous HD video feeds, with an interactive video player that puts the viewer in control of what they want to see.
And while other services were content to offer metadata-only video search, we built the industry’s most comprehensive video search engine, capable of finding and fast-forwarding to any word spoken or shown in any video.
One thing we didn’t set out to do was to win awards.
Even so, we couldn’t be more thrilled that Panopto has again been recognized with two prestigious accolades this month.
For five consecutive years, Panopto has been selected by the editors of Streaming Media Magazine as part of the Streaming Media 50, “The Fifty Companies That Matter Most in Online Video in 2019”. Members of the Streaming Media 50 will chart the course for evolving video technologies, and we’re proud to continue to be included among those leaders.
2019 also marks the fifth consecutive year Panopto’s been named a reader favorite in the Campus Technology 2019 Readers’ Choice Awards. This year is especially sweet as Panopto’s video platform has been recognized on the Awards’ top honor, winning Silver in the “Most Valuable Technology In The Institution” category, as well as being named the overall “Platinum” winner for lecture capture solutions for the third year in a row.
Video technology has come a long, long way in a very short time. We’re excited to be a part of the progress, but we’re nowhere near done. We’re going to keep making video a smarter, simpler, and more convenient way to teach, train, communicate, and inform.
Want to see what the future of video looks like? We hope you’ll give Panopto a try.
