Download the Panopto Recorder

Downloading the Panopto Recorder allows the users to download the recorder software to create videos from their destop. The recorder can be used to upload created videos immediately, or videos can be created "off-line" and uploaded at a later date. This can be beneficial for those that may have low bandwidth/unstable connection, or who need to create videos during times when internet access is limited, such as during travel.
