1. With users that have login to Panopto (Duquesne faculty/ staff/ students)
2. With any user with the direct URL link
3. Specific users that have to login to Panopto

Panopto Remote Recorder/Classroom Recordings

Each instructor PC in the classrooms and courtrooms have the Panopto Remote Recorder installed which allows the Law IT Department to schedule recordings of any lectures, meetings or special events on demand. Please contact the IT Department to schedule a recording (or series of recordings).

Please note: Our classroom cameras are mounted and stationary. While a camera angle/zoom can be adjusted by IT prior to start of a recording, it cannot be adjusted once a recording starts. If a recording requires the aid of a camera operator in providing additional production value, please request a recording through the University Office of Classroom Technology.
