Crestron/Panopto Integration

By: Richard Mitchell

During an AV upgrade of Rubenstein 153, one of the large classrooms at the Sanford School of Public Policy, we added a module (hat tip to the University of Washington) to our Crestron control system that gives us the ability to directly interact with Panopto.

The Crestron module communicates over the serial connection of the Panopto device to share the scheduling information associated with the current recording and the next recording, within 60 minutes. The interface also provides faculty, staff, and students with the ability to start a scheduled recording early, pause, resume, extend, and stop the recording. Finally, it gives faculty and staff a red blinking icon to provide a confirmation that the Panopto device is, in fact, recording.
