If you aren’t 100% satisfied with Echo360’s Active Learning Platform, then we’d like to ask for 15 minutes of your time.

Panopto was created at Carnegie Mellon University by professors and computer scientists with a goal of dramatically simplifying video capture and management. If you’re accustomed to Echo360, you’ll find that Panopto provides more flexible deployment options in the cloud, higher quality video recording and live streaming, better customer support, and lower total cost of ownership.

And now, migrating from Echo360 is easier than ever. Panopto offers a video conversion tool that will transfer your Echo360 media files and metadata into a new Panopto video library. Our engineers will verify that every video converted successfully, and will provision your existing users into your new Panopto library.

Read on for more about why other universities are making the switch to Panopto. And if you’d like to hear more about how Panopto can simplify lecture capture and video management at your institution, just fill out the form on this page and our team will contact you.

6 things you'll love about Panopto

“I’m not used to having a company bend over backwards to make things work the way I need them to. Panopto has always been right there with us. There are so many products out there that promise great video capture, but no other solution delivers support and management like Panopto.”

Jimmy Lieu, Director, Information Technology and Services
University of Pennsylvania Wharton School of Business

“Using Panopto to flip the classroom gave my students the chance to view the material multiple times if they needed to, allowing them to learn the content at their own pace. It also freed up that lecture session to focus on other things. My students loved it and I got lots of positive feedback.”

Dr Jeremy Pritchard, Senior Lecturer & Head of Education, School of Biosciences, University of Birmingham

“We created our own 'media lab' without spending any money. We took normal student meeting rooms with no built-in audio-visual equipment, set up a laptop with Panopto inside, and hit record.
With six rooms running simultaneously, we could record 40 presentations in less than 90 minutes.”

Cameron Morrell, University of British Columbia Sauder School of Business

“Panopto has given our students and faculty the ability to use video technology much more easily than they ever could before, and really enhances the teaching and learning process.”

Jeana Rogers, Center for Academic Technology, Butler University
Panopto offers an easy to scale, reliable alternative to Echo360

Scalable, reliable video.

No appliances required.

You don’t need specialized appliances to reliably capture video at scale. Panopto’s recording and live streaming software runs on PCs and Macs, captures up to four feeds of video simultaneously, and produces higher quality output than Echo360’s PRO, POD, and software-based capture systems. Leading institutions like University of Arizona capture more than 3,000 hours of Panopto video every week. And with unique features like failsafe recording, you won’t find a more reliable capture and streaming solution.
