Panopto Video Platform - Instant Searchable Video Presentations



Why “Panopto”?

The name Panopto comes from panoptic, “the point at which everything can be seen in one view.” Panoptic in turn derives from the Greek word panoptos, “seen by all”.

In video, the panoptic view is the one that allows the viewer to see everything at once.

Our mission at Panopto is to democratize knowledge sharing with video. We believe that video has the power to fundamentally improve the way organizations communicate and the way students learn. So our software enables anyone to record and share video presentations that make the viewer feel like they’re actually there.

Our video platform also enables people to see inside video in ways never before possible. We’ve built a unique video search engine that indexes the actual content within videos. This enables employees and students to find and fast-forward to any word spoken or shown within any video ever recorded. And for the first time, it enables businesses and academic institutions to build searchable video libraries of their institutional knowledge.

Our Roots

Privately-held, Panopto was founded in 2007 by technology entrepreneurs and software design veterans at Carnegie Mellon University’s School of Computer Science. Originally created to eliminate the complexity and reduce the cost of lecture recording systems, Panopto capitalized on the commoditization of HD video cameras, the processing power of personal computers, and plummeting cloud storage costs to reimagine university video for unprecedented scale and ease of use.

Today Panopto delivers video capture and management solutions to a wide range of corporate and academic institutions. Our growth is driven by our commitment to building solutions that make it easy for anyone to tap into the power of video to communicate and share knowledge.
