In his 20 years of involvement with a video-technology project, Eric Burns has learned that people want to be able to search videos the same way they search the web.
Need to find a specific quote from a Ted Talk? Want to see that part of a video where a professor discusses the geologic history of Mesopotamia? Panopto can help with that.
The Seattle company’s technology lets people create searchable videos as well as search video libraries — by what is said or shown on screen in the video.
Panopto, which comes from the Greek root words for “all seeing,” started in 1998 as a project at Carnegie Mellon University.
