If you aren’t 100% satisfied with your institution’s video platform, we’d like to ask for 15 minutes of your time.

Panopto was created at Carnegie Mellon University by professors and computer scientists with a goal of dramatically simplifying video capture and management. If you’ve been using Tegrity, Kaltura, Mediasite, Echo360, or Yuja, you’ll find that Panopto provides higher quality video management, more flexible video capture, better customer support, and lower total cost of ownership.

And now, making the switch to Panopto is easier than ever.

Special Pricing: Even if your institution has an existing multi-year contract with another video platform, our special pricing incentives make switching affordable before your current contract ends.

Keep Your Existing Content: We offer video migration services to transfer your existing media files and metadata into a new Panopto video library. Our engineers will verify that every video converted successfully, and will provision your existing users into your new Panopto library.

Read on for more about why other universities are making the switch to Panopto. And if you’d like to hear more about how Panopto can simplify video management and capture at your institution, just fill out the form on this page and our team will contact you.

9 things you'll love about Panopto

“I’m not used to having a company bend over backwards to make things work the way I need them to. Panopto has always been right there with us. There are so many products out there that promise great video capture, but no other solution delivers support and management like Panopto.”

Jimmy Lieu, Director, Information Technology and Services
University of Pennsylvania Wharton School of Business

“Using Panopto to flip the classroom gave my students the chance to view the material multiple times if they needed to, allowing them to learn the content at their own pace. It also freed up that lecture session to focus on other things. My students loved it and I got lots of positive feedback.”

Dr Jeremy Pritchard, Senior Lecturer & Head of Education, School of Biosciences, University of Birmingham

“We created our own 'media lab' without spending any money. We took normal student meeting rooms with no built-in audio-visual equipment, set up a laptop with Panopto inside, and hit record.
With six rooms running simultaneously, we could record 40 presentations in less than 90 minutes.”

Cameron Morrell, University of British Columbia Sauder School of Business

“Panopto has given our students and faculty the ability to use video technology much more easily than they ever could before, and really enhances the teaching and learning process.”

Jeana Rogers, Center for Academic Technology, Butler University

And to assist with Section 508 compliance, Panopto offers human-transcribed captions with guaranteed delivery time, quality, and support for as little as $1/minute.

Scalable, reliable video

Panopto’s recording and live streaming software runs on PCs, Macs, and dedicated appliances. It captures up to four feeds of video simultaneously and produces higher quality output than other video platforms. Leading institutions like the University of Arizona capture more than 3,000 hours of Panopto video every week. And with unique features like failsafe recording, you won’t find a more reliable capture and streaming solution.
