There are plenty of ways to try to show someone what you’re seeing on your computer screen.

You could write long emails describing what you see on your screen. You could make a phone call and talk someone through it – assuming they see the same thing you do. You might even take still images or screenshots with the old Alt+PrintScreen trick and annotate it in PowerPoint.

But if you really want to show people what you’re actually seeing, nothing does a better job than screen recording software.

Which is why Panopto includes some of the best video screen capture capabilities in the world. See for yourself in our screencast recording demo below.



With Panopto’s video screen capture software, you can record you and the contents of your computer screen with a single click.

  • Develop software training video

  • Improve corporate communications

Panopto also enables multi-monitor support – allowing you to capture the output of multiple monitors attached to your computer. Panopto automatically synchronizes your screens and presents them in a single interactive video player.

And Panopto doesn’t stop when your recording does. Your screencast is automatically uploaded to the Panopto video content management system, making your video screen capture available online, on-demand – it’s easily discoverable by coworkers in minutes.
