Panopto announces new video platform

Panopto has released a new version of its cloud-based video platform which features Failsafe Recording, ensuring that presentations will always be recorded, saved in a central library, and be quickly available for viewing.

Panopto 4.3 also allows viewers to insert “Twitter-like” comments on videos and give community ratings to rank their favorites and also find the most popular recordings. Employees can add time-stamped, sharable bookmarks and notes during video playback that can be easily accessed at a later time to locate a specific point in the video.

It also features per-user analytics and an admin dashboard for monitoring quotas on video streaming, captioning services, and client software licenses. The media library now supports ten file formats.
