Panopto 5.2 release – June 25th

We’re excited to announce a new release of Panopto that makes the video platform even easier to use, personalize, and manage. Headline features include:

  • Personal View — We will give UW students, faculty, and staff a personal folder called My Folder that acts as a private sandbox for creating and sharing videos. This, combined with a new Shared with Me view, give users one-click access to the videos that matter most to them.
  • Curated Home Page —  Panopto 5.2 includes a new YouTube-like homepage.
  • HTML5 Video Editor — This rebuilt editor allows you to trim your videos, edit metadata, change thumbnails, perform secondary camera switching, and more without the need for Silverlight or Flash.
