Last week at panopto18, the annual Panopto conference in London we were inspired but also walked away with some accolades. Viducon was awarded as the top reseller in EMEA for most new clients and most client renewals.

That means if you’re reading this, THANK YOU. It is your commitment to better education through video that help makes this possible. We’re happy to be on this journey together and look forward to bringing new and better video experiences to you and all of your viewers.

Today Inc. announced its 2014 Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing privately-held companies — and we’re exceptionally happy to report that Panopto ranks among this elite company.

Panopto’s first-ever entry into the Inc. 5000 falls in the top quintile — one of the 1000 fastest-growing organizations, #905 overall.

We’re even more excited to note that with a 3-year revenue growth rate of 495%, Panopto is growing more than 300% faster than the average Software company according to Inc.

Today is also a day we can get to take pride in our roots. Panopto was founded in Pittsburgh, PA, as a product of the Innovations Lab at Carnegie Mellon University’s School of Computer Science. Many of our team are active members of the CMU family, and while we’ve grown to have offices in Seattle, London, Hong Kong, Beijing, and Kuala Lumpur, our operations headquarters remains proudly located in Pittsburgh’s South Side.

2014 Inc 500 Pittsburgh Ranking Panopto Video Platform Panopto Listed Among the Fastest Growing Privately Held Companies in the Inc 5000And so it’s with real pleasure we can also note that Inc. lists Panopto as the 10th fastest-growing privately-held firm in Pittsburgh, PA.

Video is rapidly becoming the way we teach students, present information, and share ideas with one another. Panopto makes video easy — standardizing any recording device, instantly uploading videos to share and transcoding every recording to be played back anytime, anywhere, on any device.

Most importantly, Panopto makes video searchable. With Smart Search technology that indexes and finds every word spoken and every word that appears on-screen, Panopto makes it possible for businesses and universities to record anything — and find everything.

Panopto has been named an Education Investor Awards 2014 finalist

Panopto,the system which we promote, resell and support in Denmark has just been named a finalist for the Education Investor Awards 2014 in England. It’s really great to know that we are working with a product which also many others, as we do, can see its great potential.

Today we’re excited to announce that Panopto has recently been named a finalist for the Education Investor Awards 2014 in the category ‘Suppliers: Uses of Educational Technology’. Now in their fourth year, the Awards aim to promote excellence and recognise innovation in the UK education sector. Each category is designed to celebrate organisations and individuals that have made an outstanding contribution to the sector during the 2013-14 academic year. As such, we’re delighted to reach the final shortlist. Innovative Uses of Educational Technology – Where Video Fits In

The process of entering the awards certainly gave the team in our London offices a great chance to reflect on the work we’ve been doing with our client universities, colleges, and schools, to help them integrate video into their approaches to teaching and learning.

We are constantly finding that once institutions start using our video platform – often for lecture recording in the first instance – they quickly find ever more inventive ways to use our solution. Whilelecture capture will always be a large part of what we do, our video platform is now being used at an increasing number of institutions to flip the classroom, enablestudents to submit their own video assignments and live broadcast seminars or university events. As a company that prides itself on its ability to continually innovate and push boundaries, it’s great to see this reflected in our customers’ uses of the solution too.

If you’re a regular reader of our blog, you’ll know that many of these innovative user stories have found their way onto the site in the form of guest blog posts or case studies. For instance, the giant leaps made in scaling lecture capture across an entire campus were explored by staff from Newcastle University in this post about the process of making all their lectures available on-demand for students. The University of Northampton discussed the rise of mobile video in this post, which details their use of the Panopto iPad app at their School of Health to film paramedic students in simulated emergency scenarios. And at the University of Birmingham, one biologist’s ongoing experiments with the flipped classroom have been explored in this case study and on the blog.

These emergent forms of video usage to enhance student learning inspire us as we too develop and augment our solution so that we can continue to offer leading-edge technology to the education sector.
