Secure Video Management

Videos aren’t like other files. Panopto’s content management system was built for storing and managing video assets securely, at scale.

What is a video content management system (video CMS)?

And why do you need one?

Learning management systems (LMSs), content management systems (CMSs), and customer relationship management (CRM) systems aren’t designed for managing videos. They limit your file sizes. They don’t support every type of video file format. And the way they stream video can quickly bog down your network.

video content management system, or video CMS, is purpose-built to enable organizations to centralize, manage, and deliver video securely online.

With Panopto’s industry-leading video CMS, it’s easy for anyone in your organization to find and stream all of your video assets online, from anywhere in the world. Best of all, Panopto integrates with your existing LMS, CMS, CRM, and other internal IT systems, so you can share videos and video playlists in the places your people already go for information.

“For the team here at Nike, Panopto has two major benefits. First, the Panopto video platform really helps us meet all our video needs. And second, Panopto’s customer service has been just amazing.”

Secure sign-on and user-level permissions.

With Panopto, security comes first. Panopto’s video CMS integrates with single sign-on (SSO) ID management solutions including Google Apps, oAuth, SAML, and Active Directory, as well as a number of LMS authentication systems for both desktop and mobile users. Customers can authenticate through other ID providers using our API, and can continually synchronize access control lists.

By default, videos uploaded to your Panopto library or live streamed are only viewable by users who are given access. Administrators can make selected videos available more broadly, either to anyone logged into your Panopto video CMS or to the general public. Administrators can also update sharing settings for collections of videos, eliminating the need to update each recording individually.

The only video management system that helps teams work smarter, not harder.

Panopto’s solutions for video search and discovery help organizations transform the ways in which they collaborate and share knowledge.

Search your entire library of videos and meeting recordings just like you search your email to instantly find valuable information within any video assets you have permission to view. You can jump to the exact moment a keyword search is mentioned, or use Panopto’s unique in-video navigation features, such as the table of contents and visual thumbnails, to skip around and glean other insights quickly.

With video tagging and subscriptions, knowledge spreads even faster. Apply tags to increase the visibility of video content across your team, department, or your entire organization. You and other users can browse videos by tag or subscribe to relevant tags to stay up to date on certain parts of the business. You can also subscribe to videos shared by other users in your organization.

Never convert another video file.

Upload one or one hundred videos in virtually any format. In minutes, Panopto will automatically transcode every recording so it can be shared with anyone and played on any device. Panopto supports an ever-growing list of video formats, including AVI, MP4, MPG, WMV, MOV, QT, ASF, 3GP, WMA, MP3, M4V, and more.

An end-to-end video platform.

Managing video shouldn’t require a collection of point solutions. Panopto is the only technology you need to create, manage and live stream video content securely from any device. Either on its own, or integrated with your LMS, CMS, CRM, or company portal, Panopto’s video management platform makes it easier to put video to work for your organization.

Add custom virtual backgrounds.

When recording videos in a professional-looking environment isn’t possible, virtual background blur and replacement makes it easy to create a video message or presentation that looks clean and polished. Upload a default background image to Panopto so your organization’s users can create video content with a consistent look and feel that reflects your brand, while staying productive.
