How do I use the different settings in the Panopto Recorder?

Since Panopto allows the user to capture audio/video/screensharing/PowerPoint, the Panopto Recorder provides many options for how to record your lecture and arrange the content of your recording. When creating a new Panopto session, use the following settings to customize your recording:

Panopto Recorder Settings: Windows

1. Folder: Use the drop down menu to select the folder where you will send the recording.

2. Name: Enter a title for the recording in the Name textbox.

3. Primary Sources: Use this drop-down menu to include a recording of your FaceTime HD Camera, your computer screen or Built-in Display, or None for no Primary Source content. Be sure to select your microphone (e.g. Logitech Stereo H650e) in the Audio drop-down menu. Use the Quality menu to select a higher video quality (Note: may result in longer processing time).

4. Secondary Sources:  Use these check boxes to record your PowerPoint and/or computer screen.

5. Secondary Sources Tabs: Select the PowerPoint Tab to open a PowerPoint file for your presentation.
