Media hosting

DeiC offers two solutions in terms of media hosting and on-demand video: Kaltura and Panopto.

The services have been established in collaboration with NORDUnet to ensure scaling across the Nordic region.

In this way, DeiC can ensure reasonable prices for the solutions and ensure that content remains on servers in the Nordic region.

The choice between Kaltura and Panopto is a choice between three different systems, each with their own strengths and focus.



What is Panopto?

Panopto is an all-in-one video platform that has its origins in the university world with the aim of making it easy to produce, edit and share video content. Panopto especially supports user generated video content, and is particularly useful for teaching due to the versatile support of workflows at educational institutions.

The program supports video productions where the user - and not the technology - is in focus, and is suitable for auditorium recordings.


Joint Nordic tender for voice-to-text services

It has become common to systematically use automated speech-to-text tools for many purposes.

It can be documentation of interviews you have conducted in a research project, or it can be texting teaching videos automatically. The latter has also become a requirement.

In 2021, universities will share some licenses with KONCH, and it has become an option to purchase AmberScript for DeiC's Kaltura service.


Prices - Panopto


Price and terms of payment

Panopto is not part of the bundled payment of the base network connection, but has its own price.

The price depends on the total number full time students (FTE), and next introductory prices for larger organisations.

The following are price examples for 2.000, 7.000, 13.000 FTEs, as well as storage examples of 1.000, 2.000 and 5.000 GB.
