Panopto's live webcasting platform for businesses and universities allows you to stream videos securely

Secure live streaming keeps important video streams private.

Facebook Live, Periscope by Twitter, YouTube Live Streaming — if you’re streaming video to public social media feeds, you’ve got options. If you’re broadcasting something more important, however, you need a more secure, customizable solution.

With Panopto, you’re in control of who gets to view your live streams. Restrict access just to people in your organization, or even just specific teams, classes, or individuals. And with Panopto, “private” really means “private.” Viewers are required to log in before they can view a secure live stream, even if they happen to find the direct link to the session.

We take security seriously. Panopto integrates with single sign-on ID management solutions including oAuth, SAML, and Active Directory, as well as a number of LMS authentication systems for both desktop and mobile users.
