Panopto Replaces TechSmith Relay (Camtasia) - Spring 2019 Reminder

We are excited to announce the launch of our December SOLE update. The largest impact of the update is a transition in lecture capture solutions at the Health Sciences Center.

SOLE Panopto Integration

On Thursday, December 27, 2018, HSC ITS will update our classroom and remote lecture capture application from TechSmith Relay (formerly known as Camtasia) to the Panopto Video Platform. Panopto will record lectures in a similar manner and maintain previous, popular features such as auto-linking and speed settings. Previously recorded TechSmith Relay (Camstasia) lectures will remain available in courses. All newly recorded lectures in 2019 will be created utilizing Panopto. As of December 27, 2018, no further TechSmith Relay recordings will be processed and posted in SOLE.

If you currently utilize TechSmith Relay (Camtasia) in your course Panopto will be auto-enabled. If you have never utilized Lecture Capture please contact SOLE support to enable the Panopto Library in your course and request basic training.

Panopto Features

Panopto will provide functionality such as:

- Launching the recorder within SOLE
- Cloud-based storage
- Multi-camera recording
- Multi-screen recording
- Auto launch/recording for PowerPoint
- Machine/Auto closed-captioning capability
- Fully indexed slides for search
- Video editing
- and more...
