Record a Video with multiple people when they are in different places

Hi all!

I don't know if this is already possible for Panopto,

but for my work I record small video's for students and our clients. We use Microsoft Teams for this, because you can talk things through with each other and then share your PowerPoint and can start recording that.

Is it possible for Panopto to do the same?

Or can you only create a video with 1 user?

I look forward to your answer!

    Yes, it is possible. We have done it. You can record multiple video sources at the same time for the same session.

    This is what we did:

    In a classroom, we login to Panopto recorder and start recording the session.

    Then, in an iPad, we open the Panopto App, then login with the same id you used in the classroom,

    then start recording, it gives you an option to Join a session being recorded right now

    Select the session you want to join and done!

    At the end of the iPad session, you must click done and upload the session to be joined with the other one.

    Go back to your classroom pc and end the "master" session.


    You will be able to edit the session later and chose what secondary video to show

    Hi Carlos,

    Thank you for your answer! It really helped :-)

    If you don't have an iPad, can you use anther device?

    Any device with the Panopto recorder application, even another pc or your you phone. Remember that the recordings will be in sync - so you start the master recorder first and then, the other videos will appear at the times they join the session. Remember to upload session in the mobile devices.
