Webex & Panopto

If the meeting’s worth holding, it’s worth holding onto.

Webex Meetings and Panopto are the perfect pairing.

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 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. 

In addition to recording and sharing Webex Meetings, Panopto also helps you reach a larger real-time audience with its RTMP live streaming capabilities. Now you can instantly reach massive live audiences as well as record for asynchronous playback.

Panopto picks up where Webex Meetings leaves off.

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.

Meeting AI that does more than take notes.

Meetings are dynamic, collaborative events that often include multiple people talking while sharing screens, slides, and documents all from various locations. Meeting assistants designed to take notes and provide summaries quite simply miss an abundance of information that could prove to be valuable later.

Panopto’s innovative meeting AI features ensure every detail is fully preserved while presenting information in a format that makes insights easy to discover.

  • Smart ChaptersView a snapshot of key moments from a meeting. Smart Chapters auto generates a table of contents for recorded meetings so viewers can navigate quickly to specific moments.
  • Visual IndexDiscover information through visual thumbnails captured throughout the course of the meeting. Simply click a thumbnail to skip around to different parts of a recorded meeting.
  • Smart SearchFind and instantly view relevant conversations with a simple search. Panopto transcribes words spoken and shown on-screen, so even the smallest detail can be found.
Search inside Cisco Webex Meetings with Panopto

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.

Manage Webex Meetings recordings more efficiently with Panopto.

Secure every meeting recording.

Even the most routine meetings can include sensitive information you wouldn’t make publicly available. From product launch plans and promotional campaign schedules to testing schema and internal architecture discussions, there’s a lot your employees need to talk about that you don’t want the wrong eyes to see.

Employees typically attend three to five meetings per day. This means a large organization with thousands of employees can generate over a million meeting recordings a year. Maintaining the confidentiality of the intellectual property generated in these meetings is essential to any corporate IT strategy.

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 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.
