Enable CMS and register with Panopto

Use the Admin panel to register Pearl-2 as a remote recorder for scheduled, recurring, and ad hoc recordings and webcasts. When you register Pearl-2, a default name is assigned that includes the serial number of Pearl-2. This name appears in the list of remote recorders in Panopto. You can change the remote recorder name using the Admin panel.

Before you begin, you need:

  • Your Panopto service URL, for example: https://<myorg>.hosted.panopto.com/
  • A Panopto-generated registration key for the remote recorder.
  • The Epiphan API key from Panopto is required for on-premise versions of Panopto version 6 or earlier. Contact Panopto support for assistance to install the Epiphan API key.

Important considerations

  • You create a registration key in Panopto from System > Remote Recorders when you click Manage registration keys. Record the key somewhere safe before closing the screen in Panopto. The key cannot be retrieved after the screen is closed. If you lose the registration key, you must create a new one to register Pearl-2 as a remote recorder.
  • Scheduled recordings are associated to a remote recorder using the registration key and not the device name.
  • If you disconnect Pearl-2 and register again using a different registration key, the scheduled sessions previously associated with the original key do not migrate over.
  • If you're using the on-premise version of Panopto version 6 or earlier, you must manually add the API key for Pearl-2. Contact Panopto support for assistance.
  • If you are unable to register Pearl-2, contact your Panopto administrator or Epiphan support.
  • If you want a different name for this Pearl-2 to appear in Panopto, enter the name into the Device name field before you register Pearl-2. Changes after Pearl-2 is registered do not appear in Panopto.
