When making a request for recordings you have the option to pick from one of three camera angles provided in most rooms.
Camera Angle #1
The first camera angle is a tightly focused shot of the podium in the classroom centered on the fixed mic.
Camera Angle #2
The second camera angle is centered on the desk to the right of the room. This is mostly good for panel discussions with multiple speakers sitting in that area.
Camera Angle #3
The third and final camera angle is a wide shot covering most of the front of the classroom.
Panopto also has the ability to capture any PowerPoint presentations you may have as well as the screen itself if you use the internet for your presentation videos.
By capturing the screen or a PowerPoint presentation during your Panopto recording you will have that portion of your presentation embedded with the video recording for access by the viewer during playback.
When recording in the classrooms you have several options for voice amplification. Please note that without using at least one of these devices the video created by Panopto will have no discernable audio.
