Meetings are where ideas are exchanged, where collaboration happens, and where decisions are made. Recording and sharing internal meetings maximizes the value your organization gets from every minute employees spend in meetings.
With a complete record of every Cisco Webex meeting, employees can watch meetings they couldn’t attend, participate more actively in a meeting without needing to take notes, easily get up to speed as they join ongoing projects, and even audit archived meeting recordings for security and compliance purposes.
Cisco Webex Meetings is designed to enable real-time video conversations that can be recorded as needed. After the video conference ends, though, your people have to put in extra effort to find, share, and even watch any Webex Meetings that they recorded. Panopto adds essential administrative and end-user capabilities, so your Webex Meetings recording library can become a vast, searchable video knowledge base.

As people across your organization record more and more Webex Meetings, you may quickly reach the cloud storage limits allotted under your subscription plan. Panopto provides enterprises with unlimited cloud storage so you never have to worry about restricting usage or increasing your Cisco Webex Meetings storage limit again.
Integrating Webex Meetings with Panopto provides more control over meeting recording permissions, so employees can access and share recordings easily and you can be confident that confidential information inside those recordings is secured. All your Webex Meetings recordings are set to private by default in Panopto, and administrators can globally determine how open or restrictive sharing is for your organization’s videos. Single sign-on (SSO) enables employees to view secure videos with their existing credentials, reducing administrative support costs and enabling Cisco Webex Meetings admins to define user permissions at scale.
Panopto also includes sophisticated video management tools that enable administrators to set both system-wide and departmental content retention policies. A variety of other administrative tools allow you to customize branding and embed Panopto into third party systems, like your LMS, your company intranet, and other communication platforms.
No one should have to spend time trying to convert .arf and .wrf files or downloading and installing a special video player to watch a meeting. Panopto automatically encodes Webex Meetings recordings for instant playback on any device and adjusts video quality based on available bandwidth.
Panopto’s embeddable video player offers additional features that make it easy for teams to continue to collaborate remotely after a meeting ends. The interactive player contains a notes and asynchronous chat feature allowing for discussion to continue inside the recording after the meeting takes place. And employees can bookmark key meeting moments to easily reference them later.
Most search systems only index the title and description of recorded meetings. This requires employees to sift through hours of video to find the two minutes they actually need. It’s not only a waste of time but it also frustrates employees who may simply give up and move on without the information they know exists.
Panopto’s AI-powered video search capabilities allow employees to search for any word or phrase spoken during a meeting they attended, so they can instantly find precise meeting moments, like when a product manager demonstrates a key feature, or an engineer describes the solution to a complex problem.
Panopto also indexes every word on screen, making slides, whiteboards, and other content presented in the meeting searchable.
Panopto provides sophisticated post-production workflows that anyone can use to make recorded meetings look polished and professional. Employees can even record a presentation with Webex Meetings and then use Panopto to enhance it by adding YouTube videos, as well as other attachments and resources inside the video. In training scenarios, quizzes can be added at any point in the video, and individual user results can be sent directly to your LMS.
With Panopto’s online video editor, there’s no software to download or install — editing a Webex Meetings recording is done right in your browser. Simply drag and drop to cut out parts of the meeting and then publish the new video. Editing in Panopto is non-destructive, so you can always revert back to the original meeting recording or re-edit it as needed.
Closed captioning workflows within Panopto allow for the seamless addition of machine- or human-generated captions. Automatic machine-generated captions can be instantly inserted and edited on the fly within any individual recording. Administrators can also enable closed captioning at scale by configuring permission-based ordering from top global human captioning service providers right inside Panopto.
