Webex Meetings

Webex Meetings is more focused on organizations and users with needs above the average: HD video and audio, possibility of participating from any device, by desktop, mobile, video conference equipment or browser, share screen, documents or record and edit meetings , among other features, all safely and up to 1000 participants in each meeting. If a more basic collaborative solution is required, the advice is to use another provider.

Panopto

There are easier tools out there that do similar things and are faster without having the budgeting wildcard of Panopto's pay-per-view pricing. While the editing feature is nice, it is pretty temperamental and does not integrate or export to a format that is compatible with other programs such as Adobe After Effect, Premiere, Final Cut or Camtasia. That said if you're working with a smaller budget/audience Panopto might be a friendlier alternative to something like Kaltura.

Pros

Webex Meetings

  • it is very robust and Stable
  • Security is one important strength
  • it is easy to use, and even when shared to arrange meetings with customer that are more familiar in using other Meeting Tools, they find it easy to use and better than the tools they have been using.
  • It is curious how they like the way they could change the Virtual Background and how better it looks than others
Mike Martinez | TrustRadius Reviewer

Panopto

  • Easy to use and is intuitive to find your way around.
  • Software-based, so it's available for staff to use on many devices and helps students to access content online.
  • Flexible to suit the needs of users.
Elora Marston | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Webex Meetings

  • Better integration with other platforms such as Panopto (currently only one video source can be saved instead of one explicit presenter and one explicit content window
  • Needs a bigger marketplace similar to Zoom
  • Virtual backgrounds needs improvement and should include motion backgrounds
  • Consolidate all the different products (Webex Meetings, Event, Training, Support centers) into one product
  • Allow fullscreen video of presenter video on secondary monitor
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Panopto

  • Automated closed captioning is not very accurate.
  • Human transcribing for captioning is cost prohibitive at scale.
  • Annotation tools for the screen capture would be useful.

Cisco Webex Meetings is a platform that consistently performs well and outperforms some of the other solutions that we have used, such as Zoom. It is user friendly and helps our organization accomplish the goal of connecting with external contacts to conduct meetings and share information

Usability

Webex Meetings

Webex Meetings 8.9
Based on 63 answers
Cisco Webex Meetings is a really easy-to-use solution. Cisco has a mentality linked to joining meetings: one button to push. There is always the same big green button that appears everywhere—on invitation emails, in the calendar, on videoconferencing devices, on the application in our phones and tablets. One button and the meeting is started. Anyone can start a meeting.The solution is therefore minimally demanding for IT teams, and even easy to set up and support for smaller environments where there simply isn't an IT team.

Has always been very reliable with only a couple of issues in the past year. Video and audio quality is always very good, however the platform does struggle with many people on video and audio (could also have something to do with computer bandwidth). We had over 50 people on a video call and found the platform to crash repeatedly, however for something like this I would recommend leveraging Webex events

Overall performance of loading the application is fast. On occasions, the meeting can take time to load in the browser version. The app usually loads faster both on desktop and mobile. Integration with MS Outlook is available. While I have not noticed [...] reduced performance within Cisco Webex Meetings because of this integration, I have seen delays in MS Outlook when adding the meeting link to calendars

The response time is very fast via email. Most of the time, they also follow-up with a call but I usually need my questions answered via email.I think their support emails are bit bland and impersonal. They may think it's a good idea to list all applicable managers in their emails but that's not really all the important to me. In fact seeing so many people listed makes me wonder if I'd have to contact someone else to get my question answered or problem resolved.

Panopto has been quick to answer any questions, but their rollouts and updates have caused issues where we felt a little blindsided by unexpected changes. Their development cycle is slow and often their promises for future updates have been extremely slow or never come.

We mostly use training from Cisco's online training programs which is very informative and can be easily incorporated into our daily schedules without disrupting our normal working activities. There are many online training materials are available on cisco's website as well as other third-party training companies may also provide additional training.

That we needed complex implementation that we didn't get tells me 2 things: 1) the product was not designed in a way that "just worked" like some of its peers (Zoom / BlueJeans) and 2) had our company defined actual user needs and validated / verified that they had bought something that matched those, we would have pursued features / designs more closely aligned with what the product actually does: screen share, sometimes video, definitely VOIP audio (always an option regardless of license), and easy recording and retrieval of meetings.

Alternatives Considered

Webex Meetings

I find Cisco Webex Meetings to be the easiest to use from the following standpoints:- Google Hangouts can have firewall issues for my customers; Cisco Webex Meetings doesn't- Our company finds it hard at times to take presenter rights in Teams, and we often need to present- Skype can be difficult to log into; Cisco Webex Meetings isn't- Some of my accounts weren't allowed by their internal IT teams to use Zoom when Zoom had security issues; Cisco Webex Meetings was always considered an acceptable option

Panopto

At the end of the day, it came down to affordability for us. Panopto is affordable for smaller institutions. It is also geared primarily at lecture capture compared to many of the others that are first a media library. Panopto's focus is also education, so they do understand our audience.

  • Pay as you grow [the] solution. Only add license[s] when more user need it
  • License include[s] Cisco Webex Meetings and Webex Teams. Can be shared for entire departments and sites as needed
  • Using cloud storage, so meeting and presentation can be store on cloud. No need to provide on-premise server
  • For remote/branch user they can seamlessly join meeting from their endpoint device
  • License assignment is very simple using cloud console

  • Webex Meetings has made it a seamless experience with meeting with customers during the pandemic.
  • Some customers are moving away from Webex Meetings to MS Teams due to costs which need to be reduced to compete.
  • Having face to face meetings via Webex Meetings has reduced travel costs when an in-person meeting is not necessary.
