Panopto releases video platform migration program for MediaCore customers

Panopto has released a migration program for MediaCore customers, the company said.

In light of the Workday acquisition of MediaCore, and MediaCore support ending August 31, 2016, the migration program enables MediaCore customers to preserve and continue using their existing video assets.

Panopto´s migration program includes a video content conversion tool, professional services, and financial incentives.

For academic institutions and businesses with large archives of MediaCore videos, preserving the important content and intellectual property in those recordings is a top priority. To address this need, Panopto has developed a migration tool that automates the conversion of MediaCore videos and automatically uploads the converted content to a new Panopto video library.

The conversion process maintains the fidelity of the original video, along with video metadata and closed captions. Once converted, recordings are also indexed for search using Panopto´s unique Smart Search technology.

Since 2007, Panopto has created software that enables businesses and universities to create secure, searchable video libraries. Privately held, the company was founded by technology entrepreneurs and software design veterans at Carnegie Mellon University´s School of Computer Science.
