Manual Recorder

For academic users new to Panopto, we recommend reading our Manual Recorder guidance before downloading the software by the method outlined in the install guides on that page, which will ensure you have configured it correctly. The following links are more useful for IT staff needing the direct software package:

Remote Recorder (for teaching spaces and lecture theatres)

To install the remote recorder on a lecture room PC for scheduled automatic recordings we recommend you first read and follow the guidance on our Remote recorder page. The install packages for the remote recorder are here:

When installing the manual or remote recorder you may be asked to enter a server address. Use ox.cloud.panopto.eu

The remote recorder also requires a description. Please use something that allows the central lecture capture team to identify the location of the recorder, ideally in the format "Dept/Building - Room - PC" e.g. Exam Schools - Room 2 - Presentation laptop or English Faculty/St Cross Building - LT2 - AV booth PC

If you are installing a new instance of a remote recorder, always contact replay@it.ox.ac.uk after installation with a list of users who require access. If updating an existing remote recorder, the central lecture capture team need not be notified.
