Panopto Adds Webex Meeting Integration

A new integration for Panopto and Webex users will allow them to transfer their video recordings to their media library. Panopto produces video management applications; Webex is a video conferencing program.

The integration enables schools to transfer the recordings of Webex meetings securely and automatically into their Panopto on-demand video libraries, where the videos become shareable as well as searchable down to the spoken word. A "smart chapters" function in Panopto's system also generates a table of contents and a visual index of the meeting, to help users find key meeting moments.

"Demand for meeting recordings due to remote work and distance learning has skyrocketed since the start of the pandemic," said Panopto Chief Operating Officer, Sean Gorman, in a press release. "Universities...can now meet this demand while simultaneously creating a new searchable library that makes every student and employee more productive."

More information about the integration is available on the Panopto website. The integration is part of the Panopto subscription.
