Storing Your Zoom Meeting Recordings in Panopto

You can import your Zoom cloud recordings to Panopto by specifying a Panopto folder where the recordings will be stored. This feature only applies to future meetings (not past).

Panopto’s feature-rich environment allows users to view meeting participant video and shared content within the same window, and navigate throughout the presentation using clickable thumbnails, a searchable transcript, and optical character recognition performed on any text embedded in slides. Additionally, meeting organizers can easily share meetings with attendees and others, and track viewing of recordings using Panopto's sophisticated analytics tools.

Important Pre-requisites and Notes

  1. To use this feature, you will need to ensure that your Zoom account settings are configured as directed here.
  2. When recording a meeting, select Record to Cloud.
  3. When Panopto successfully imports a Zoom cloud recording, it moves the original to your Zoom trash. After 30 days, the recording is deleted from Zoom. The recording is governed by Panopto's retention policy, which can be found here.
