Automatic event recordings

In central university rooms equipped with the appropriate Utilities Control Room, automatic recordings of events can be set up via the Panopto video platform. In the case of automatic recording, only the screen content transmitted to the projector and the sound played back via the room system (incl. the Lecture Hall microphone) is recorded.

Scope of services

Automatic recordings in supported rooms can be requested from Support. (see Prerequisites). Automatic recording can be set up for individual appointments as well as for appointment series (e.g. weekly event). Automatic recording records the screen content transmitted to the projector and the audio played back via the room system (including the lecture hall microphone). The videos are trimmed (beginning & end) by support and then made available in a Panopto folder. For courses, this can also be a Panopto folder directly connected to the learning room.


The videos can optionally be made available in a desired folder immediately after recording. In this case, no cutting of beginning & end is done by the support. The automatic recording can optionally be made available directly during the recording as a live stream. Panopto offers numerous configuration options (commentary function, table of contents, download option, audio podcasts, automatic subtitling). Feel free to contact us with your requirements and ideas.

Operating time

Automatic recordings are usually possible in supported rooms Monday to Friday between 07:00 and 20:00. Please contact us for a recording request at the weekend.
