Search Your Videos as Easily as You Search Documents, Websites, and Emails

Enterprise and education videos often run 30-60 minutes or longer, so being able to find and fast-forward to specific moments is essential.

Traditional video platforms, however, only offer basic search capabilities — making it difficult and time consuming to find phrases mentioned by a speaker, words shown on-screen, or key topics covered in a video.

Smart Search by Panopto solves that problem, enabling anyone to search video content as easily as they would search a document, website, or email.

With Smart Search, every recording stored in an organization’s Panopto video library, new or old and whether or not it was recorded with Panopto, can now be searched for:

  • Words spoken by any speaker (with new automatic speech recognition)
  • Words that appear anywhere in a video, including text shown on-screen during screencasts and handwritten words shown on whiteboards (with new optical character recognition)
  • Words from PowerPoint and Keynote presentations, including speakers notes
  • Words that are part of a video’s public notes or comments

And once a keyword has been found in the video, customers can instantly fast forward to the moment in the video where the keyword appears.
