Hello, all, I was curious to see if anyone has any suggestions in choosing between Panopto vs Tegrity for lecture capture? I will be starting a new job at Rush University Medical Center in July as Assistant Library Director for Educational Technology and this is one of the first things on my agenda when I start - to choose between the two. Thank you for any suggestions and have a great Memorial Day weekend!

Max,

Congratulations on your new job. We use Panopto at the OUWB School of Medicine. This is our first year. We had some challenges related to file format and playback speed. The students wanted to download it as MP4 and play it back at 2x. The older version of Panopto did not support dual speed playback. This is supposed to have been resolved with the most current version. We are deploying it next month.  I believe the new version of Panopto only supports one high-def feeds. However, it will support a High-Def plus standard def feeds.

Panopto is software based it does its compiles the video file on a classroom computer. I believe Tegrity is hardware based.  Hardware based solutions tend to be much more expensive. 

I hope this helps.

Bob

Hi Max,
 
  I have deployed Panopto here at Case School of Medicine and had great success.  The new version affords 2x playback the the mp4 workflow is seamless and simple.  The simplicity of the deployment, reliability of the captures, the price of the complete package and the output are all fantastic. In my career with lecture capture we have used a home brewed version, Tegrity, Arpeso, Echo 360 and Panopto. Panopto is by far the best solution for us.  Tegrity is more full featured but the complexity of the workflow does not fit with our faculty, staff or curriculum. 
 
Panopto does not rely on an appliance and can be loaded on laptops for a portable system.

Max, We have used Tegrity at the Univ of Texas Medical Branch since January 2009. Panopto was just getting started at the time we made our selection in 2008, so we didn't get to review. Tegrity is not appliance-based; the recorder software installs the first time you initiate a recording from the web. UTMB has recorded over 10,000 lectures (and meetings, grand rounds, etc.) from at least 100 different computers. Tegrity has some excellent features - indexing of lectures and courses; screen capture performance, audio and video (MP4) podcasts, iPhone and iPad players, record from anywhere, student recording. When you test products be sure to record some screens with animated Powerpoints or video presentations. The Tegrity AAIRS integration allows us to use Blackboard data to control access; instructors have record privileges and students have view permissions. You can also create public URLs for viewing. The annual subscription price is a little high, since it doesn't decrease after the first year (as it would if you were buying appliances). The Tegrity player for the Mac does not have speed controls yet (our students continually remind us). You have to be careful to maintain good audio quality (no audio editing). We have not used the live webcasting feature much (in testing we were seeing a 45 second delay and there is no communication from the receiving end). Tegrity has also added exam proctoring and student note taking capabilities. We use webcams or Polycom videoconferencing cameras for the instructor view; Panopto seemed to be big on HD video for the instructor, but not needed for a talking head. Without a cameraman or some technology to track the instructor it is difficult to keep the instructor in the field of view. About 2/3 of our recordings don't include video of the speaker. You can use a higher definition device for the instructional view. -Don Donald G.

Thank you all! I do appreciate it. I am hoping to attend the annual meeting in the fall and meet many of you. Cheers, Max
