You can navigate through a recording in several different ways
There are 7 sections of the viewer labeled above.
Bookmarks - Bookmarks allow you to save a particular spot in a recording to revisit at a later time. Bookmarks will also show up in your search results. See our Bookmarks documentation for more information.
Smart Search is the industry's most comprehensive way to search inside the content of your videos. You can search for any word that is spoken or shown in any video in your library and fast forward to that precise moment in one click. This makes searching your video library as easy as searching your email. It is comprised of two main components Automated Speech Recognition(ASR) and Optical Character Recognition(OCR).
Yes, all results are linked to the time they were spoken, written, or typed during the presentation. This will allow your users to search for a term and be brought to the moment when the term was mentioned!
(ASR) is a technology used to identify each word that is spoken in a recording. Once identified, the words are time stamped and added to a search index. Users can then search for spoken words, find the precise moment in the video when they were mentioned, and fast-forward to that point in the video. Since many viewers will be searching for a moment based on an idea or phrase they remember, ASR is an incredibly helpful part of your video search engine.
Target completion is 2 days from uploading the recording until ASR is completed.
Panopto has added the ability to add ASR generated captions to your Panopto sessions. See CAPTIONS at this page.
Yes, you can now edit ASR results.
Currently, the only language that ASR supports is English.
(OCR) is a technology used to recognize text shown on-screen within videos. Often in today's modern presentations, a speaker will switch from between slides, live on-screen content, and even other videos. Without OCR, any text shown as part of those presentations cannot be indexed because search engines like Google cannot recognize text that's saved as an image. OCR technology however, is designed to identify and decipher those words, allowing your viewers to search for literally any word that appears on-screen anywhere in a video.
Any legible word that appears on the screen or in the video feed for at least 10 seconds will be captured and indexed into the video.
Once an individual session is uploaded, it typically takes 1.5x recording time to complete the processing.
Here are some guidelines to improve OCR recognition success rate:
Yes, any clearly written word can be picked up on a whiteboard, chalkboard, paper or anything else you can write on.
To edit or delete a submitted note click on the note you wish to change and either click edit or delete. Editing the note will bring the submitted note back into the initial field and allow you to change the submitted note. Editing a note will not change the initially time stamp of the note. Deleting the note will remove it entirely from all fields. Be aware that hitting delete once will remove the note.
By default, notes under your username will be private notes. This means no one else can see your notes. To verify your notes are private, you will see a link that says Make Public.
To make your notes public, simply click on the link Make Public. The link will change to say Make Private. To make your notes private, simply click on the link a second time. Notes taken with the link shown as make private will become public when the link is clicked for make public.
In Panopto we allow users to take notes in channels. This is useful if you want to collaborate your notes with a group. Anyone with the channel name can add or view notes under that name.
To select or create a channel click on the drop down menu Your Notes (myuserid).
Click on the Join a channel... option and type the name of the channel you wish join or create.
If you created a new channel share the channel name with anyone you wish to share notes with and start collaborating!
With Panopto you can take notes while the session is being recorded!
All notes you take will be time stamped and aligned with the recorded session for later use.

This shows us various information like when the time viewed, session name, minutes viewed, and who viewed it.
Below the graph we can see information based on specific folders such as Views, Unique Viewers, and Minutes Viewed.
Keep in mind that the information below reflects the dates you have chosen. For instance, if we were on All Time we would see all folders with viewed content, not just content viewed in the past month.
