Panopto Feature Reviews

17 reviewers had the following to say about Panopto's features:

Jonathan DeGroot

Panopto has met all of my needs and then some and the support is phenomenal.

2017-11-10

It provides us a secure way to stream 3rd party video we have an agreement with to share with specific users.

Pros

I love how it manages our video content. The ability to manage 1000's of videos with ease and update user permissions or move content around all without breaking the link to the video was the biggest selling point for me.

Cons

The recorder has a lot of options in regards to setting the quality when we always encourage our faculty to set it at the highest possible. I wish the recorder could be streamlined so I could start up recordings faster and have a share link go right to my clipboard so I could send it out like how Jing does it. There is value to all of the options on the recorder but I wish they had a lighter weight version.

Simple yet robust video capture software/service

2017-11-03

Pros

We also really appreciate the automatic closed captioning service.

Cons

The recorder can be buggy at times. Some of our users have difficulty installing it. We would love to see a web based advanced editor as well. Right now there is one, but it only works in Internet Explorer.

Excellent Security, UI, and file management

2017-10-30

Pros

Panopto's integration with our university's LMS is vital to keeping our video lectures secure, but also easily accessible to viewers who are enrolled in a course. The UI is also highly favored by viewers.

Cons

Small learning curve/training for new admins or instructors who have no background in video. Support documents on the Panopto site are great, but it would help to have one-on-one training for new admin users.

Panopto Creates a Seamless Experience to Create, Distribute, and View Course Lectures

2017-11-16

The auto-scheduling and auto-publishing of videos to specific Canvas courses is extremely valuable. Other players in this space currently require manually publishing.

Pros

We are able to schedule the lecture captures, associate each video with the instructor and appropriate Canvas course, and automatically publish the videos, so that students can review the course content at a later time on nearly any type of device.

Cons

There is a cost associated with piloting this software, but it's not too excessive. Many companies offer a completely free trial period. It would be nice to check it out for free.

All round best value for money

2017-11-01

Ease of use, Unlimited Cloud Storage for our content, fantastic customer service and support

Pros

Cloud hosted makes it easy to configure who can see what and when.

Cons

Its great for multiple video feeds at one time but to be able to select mulitple audio source (say several microphones in a conference room) would be benifical. The length of time between updates varies and can be lengthy in between but then they do arrive they don't dissapoint.

Great lecture capture software that works for any company.

2018-05-07

Pros

Panopto works wonderfully on all of our Apple products recording lectures.

Cons

Software is a little finicky when trying to learn it and use it and first, but then becomes natural once you understand the progression of how it works.

Panopto is easy to use and reliable.

2017-10-18

I benefit from this software because it stores all the recordings in one place and makes it easy to find if misplaced.

Pros

I also like that the editing feature is easy to use and edits quickly.

Cons

I don't like that I can only start recordings on the computer that is doing the recording. I think it would be beneficial to create a step that allows you to start/stop recordings from your desktop. Set up kind of like the editing tool.

I use this software to access recordings of my lectures and webcasts put on for revision purposes.

2017-12-28

Pros

This software is very intuitive, with easy controls to pause, play and change the volume, all of which are like second nature while using the program.

Cons

Sometimes the lectures i listen to are very distorted due to bad quality. Also, the side bars are sometimes hard to navigate and the quiz sections at the end are very slow.

Does what it's supposed to!

2018-04-07

Pros

It's a great tool for recording our classes and lectures so students can access them later.

Cons

I don't think it's a secret that the web browser experience is lacking in all but IE. Most of us are Mac users and Safari is never happy with Panopto.

Great!

2017-11-04

Has made my work-life easier.

Pros

The support has been very good. Not only when there has been an issue but also when trying to find answers and just cannot find the correct article, they have been excellent at pointing me in the right direction.

Cons

I am normally in Chrome throughout the day, so when I need to use the Advanced Editor, I have to change over to IE. It is not a real problem, just an inconvenience

Using Panapto has changed the way I provide lectures online.

2017-12-19

I was able to transfer my face to face lectures.

Pros

Panopto is a software that comes in handy for recording lectures for a flipped classroom experience. It is easy to use and required little effort to transfer your classroom experience to an online training environment.

Cons

It is not an inexpensive program. It is can be tricky with certain web browsers such as Safari. It is not a true problem but more of an inconvenience.

Panopto is very easy to use and has many great features.

2017-10-13

The ability to make instructional videos and to share them with others.

Pros

What I like most about Panopto is how easy it is to choose what you want to record, with what source of audio you want to use, and where to save it.

Cons

The only thing I noticed was that when you would start the recording and then decide to switch to a different audio source, the program would freeze and would have to be restarted.
