Installing Panopto Recorder

Installing Panopto Recorder on your computer

InstallingPanopto You can install the Panopto Recorder client on any UCC computer or laptop as long as it has Windows or Mac OSX installed. The minimum recommended processor is a Core 2 Duo or equivalent and 2 GB of RAM. You also need a USB webcam or a built-in laptop webcam to record material. You can also record with a microphone only, if you don't want to record video, but still want slides and audio voice-over recorded. Also note that it is possible to use a webcam in a microphone-only mode, this often provides better sound quality than the laptop's built-in microphone. Of course, USB microphones work very well, too.‌
