Panopto Updates

Winter Service Update - December 19, 2020

Delete Streams in the Editor 

You can now delete or replace video streams from within the video editor. To learn the key benefits on this new functionality, please visit Panopto's article, How to Delete Streams in the Editor


Panopto Capture in Embedded Video Selector

From within an LMS (Blackboard), you can now directly record and embed new videos using Panopto Capture, all without leaving the browser. Visit Panopto's page on the Updated Embedded Video Selector Interface to learn more.


Share interesting points in a video

Viewers can easily share a link to a specific place in the video with other viewers, right from the viewer. As long as the other user has permissions to the video, they will be taken to the exact spot in the video that was shared with them. If the other user doesn't have permissions they will see the 'Request Access' page.


Audio Normalization

Creators can make audio levels consistent throughout their video stream by using the new audio normalization feature in the editor. Please note: This feature is not enabled on Panopto staging servers but is targeted to ship in the Dec 19th release.


Updated Mobile apps

In the next app update, coming out soon, users will be able to upload or record videos more reliably. The new version will support background upload without needing to keep the app active. Users will automatically get this update from Android and iOS app stores when the new version is released.


Smart Chapters

Panopto’s innovative Smart Chapters feature uses artificial intelligence to automatically generate a table of contents for any video with a screen capture, including recordings from Panopto Capture (web-based recorder) and Zoom.

Contents, captions, slides, quizzes, cuts, streams Panopto menu
