Commonly asked questions

Why do I need Panopto if I can upload and share videos for free using YouTube?

Panopto provides everything you need to record, edit, analyze, manage, and securely share videos.  With Panopto, you control everything, including monetization and who sees your videos.  Plus, depending on which Panopto plan you choose, you can live stream, integrate with other solutions, brand videos, and more.                 


Is Panopto a video conferencing solution like Zoom, Webex, and Teams?

Unlike video conferencing solutions which require everyone to be simultaneously present, Panopto provides the flexibility for users to create and consume information using asynchronous video communication. With Panopto, anyone can record and share anything at any time, including recordings of video conferencing meetings, enabling others to view (and review) it where and when they need it most.     


Is Panopto Basic just a free trial?

Panopto Basic is a free, fully-featured video solution that you may use for as long as you wish. It includes everything you will need for creating, managing, sharing and streaming recorded videos. If you exceed the included storage or require more extensive product support, you can upgrade to Panopto Pro.  It’s free for 30-days, then $14.95/mo. Panopto Enterprise is for organizations with 100+ employees who require unlimited storage, live streaming, and integration.      


Does Panopto require me to forfeit or share my content rights?

Unlike free-to-use ad-funded solutions like Youtube, Panopto honors your rights as a creator. You will always retain full ownership and control of any content you create or share using Panopto.


Does Panopto watermark videos or set file size/time limitations?

No matter which plan you choose, Panopto will not watermark any videos, set file size, or time limitations.  


Will viewers see third-party ads on any videos I share with Panopto?

With Panopto, you control any content you create, including how you choose to monetize it. Panopto will not insert third-party ads or re-sell any viewer data.  As the content owner, you can choose to insert ads or monetize however you choose.


What type of secure video sharing can I do with Panopto?

With Panopto, you can securely share a video with just one person, a group of people, or anyone on the internet. Panotpo’s iron-clad security provides everything you need.  


Can I live stream with Panopto?

Yes. Industry-leading high-definition multi-source live streaming service is available with Panopto’s Enterprise plan(s). To learn more about features, integration, and capabilities, visit the live streaming page.
