Most video conferencing solutions provide basic recording functionality that allows you to capture the audio, video, and screen shares from your video meetings. But what happens to those videos once you finish recording? Most of the time, you’re left with a large file dropped onto your desktop, with no easy means to share that recording with the rest of the team.
Panopto integrates with industry-leading video conferencing software, including Skype for Business, GoToMeeting, Zoom, and BlueJeans to take the work out of managing and sharing your video conference recordings. Best of all, you don’t have to do anything different. Just press “record” in your video conferencing system, and once your call is finished, Panopto will automatically capture, convert, and upload your recorded meetings to a secure, searchable video content management system (video CMS).
Already have recorded meetings saved on network drives, in SharePoint, on employee hard drives, and elsewhere in your organization? No sweat. Panopto enables you to easily upload all of your existing conference recordings, while also making them searchable and shareable.
MP4, AVI, WMV and more — a big challenge to managing video conference recordings is simply that they come in so many different file types and formats. And making things worse, many of those formats are proprietary which means they can’t be played on most devices without specialized software.
With Panopto, you don’t have to worry about compatibility. Panopto automatically transcodes every recording you capture with your video conferencing solution — even the proprietary file types — so your video can be played back on any device.
Meetings are valuable because they give people time to discuss a ton of information. But when you’re just looking for one specific detail, replaying a recorded meeting is usually the least efficient option. Who has time to watch a 60-minute web conference recording when all you needed was a two-minute segment?
Panopto’s Smart Search gives you a better solution. Smart Search automatically indexes every word spoken and shown on-screen in every video conference recording you upload to your library. With Smart Search, your people can search your videos the same way they search their email, and get direct links to instantly fast forward to the relevant moments they were looking for.
Panopto’s video CMS integrates with single sign-on (SSO) ID management solutions including Google Apps, oAuth, SAML, and Active Directory, so you can easily manage who in your organization is able to view what, at scale.
By default, each video conference recording uploaded to Panopto is shared only with the meeting leader. Leaders and administrators can set sharing permissions for each individual new video, or for entire playlists and folders of recordings.
Panopto’s video platform includes APIs that enable your developers to programmatically upload your recorded video conference calls securely to the cloud. Using the APIs and easy-to-use sample code, video conference calls can be ingested in real-time, uploaded in batch, or captured through the use of watch folders.
“Glad that was recorded.” Whether a meeting got off topic halfway through or began with the usual catch-up about kids, sports, vacations, and other casual conversations, you don’t always need to document every second of a meeting.
Panopto’s online video editor has basic editing tools that make it easy for you to remove those first few minutes of personal discussions or to cut out off-topic conversations from your meeting videos. You can even splice together important moments from multiple meetings to pull every conversation about a project or initiative into one video.
To get the most out of your investment in video conferencing, you need more than what your video conferencing system offers.
