Panopto replacing Mediasite

In 2021, Panopto is replacing Mediasite as NC State’s primary management system for video content. Most existing video content is being migrated automatically from Mediasite to Panopto. Panopto is a video management platform that allows instructors and students to create and share video content (such as online lectures or narrated presentations) and is a direct replacement for Mediasite. Panopto includes a range of useful features for video creation, storage, and delivery, and it adheres to university accessibility standards, including automatic transcriptions and video captioning, variable speed playback, and screen reader support.
