Lecture Capture


There's nothing you can't capture.

Every class is different. In ECON 201, you only need to capture audio and the professor’s PowerPoint slides. In STAT 390, you also need to record a document camera. In BIO 453, there are two fixed IP cameras, a wireless mic system, two laptops, and a polarizing microscope.

Panopto is the only lecture capture system built with the flexibility to record any combination of video sources, in any configuration, in classrooms of any size. And Panopto scales with ease to meet your institution’s needs — from small departmental deployments to campus-wide installations.

We wrote the complete guide to implementing lecture capture anywhere on campus, from content considerations to equipment configuration and more.

Focus on teaching. Not technology.

The best kind of education technology is the kind you don’t even realize is there. So we’ve worked with edutech teams, faculty, and staff to build a lecture capture system that fades into the background. Capturing a lecture with Panopto is as easy as opening a laptop and clicking “record”. Panopto automatically recognizes any connected cameras and microphones, and remembers professors’ recording settings to make setup simple.

For administrators, Panopto even lets you go a step further. Our unique automated recording software enables you to schedule recordings ahead of time for fully-automated lecture capture, and provides your team with total control over your entire recording infrastructure from any web browser.

Integrate with your LMS, and everything else.

For nearly a decade, Panopto has been working with academic institutions and our LMS partners to build the best lecture capture integrations in the industry. Our video platform integrates with Blackboard, Moodle, Canvas, Sakai, and D2L, so that you and your students can access your videos without ever having to leave your LMS.

Panopto also includes an extensive set of APIs for integrating with your room control system, web conferencing software, and all the other hardware and software that make up your edutech infrastructure.

Record your lectures anywhere.

Don’t limit your faculty to only recording in the classroom. With Panopto, teachers can share lessons and insights anytime and anywhere, from any PC, Mac, or mobile device.

There’s no limit to the number of machines you can install Panopto on. For faculty, that means it’s simple to add Panopto to their home and office laptops, and to record flipped classroom micro-lectures and other course content. Lecturers can even take Panopto to go, with our native iOS and Android apps, and record lessons on location in the field, the lab, or anywhere else.
