InfoComm Booth C-9131 — Sonic Foundry, Inc. (NASDAQ: SOFO), the industry-recognized market leader for enterprise video creation and management solutions, today announced the latest version of Mediasite 7. Updates include a dynamic enterprise video portal and enhanced mobile capabilities.

It’s that holistic approach that will not only support us as we scale, but also ultimately meet the needs of our faculty and students,” said Joseph Collins, educational technical services manager, North Hennepin Community College.

“The capture anywhere, publish everywhere nature of Mediasite has given us success scaling our deployment campus-wide. We’re working with faculty to support them as they record welcomes, syllabus review, expectations and book requirements so they can focus on teaching. As we roll into more technology-driven pedagogies, Mediasite allows us to support faculty as they grow their technology wings,” said Mona Aldana-Ramirez, director of student success, San Antonio College.

“The evolution of Mediasite is driven by our vision of scalable enterprise video deployments in organizations and campuses around the world. We’ve worked tirelessly to provide open platforms and seamless video applications that support the evolving expectation for open, flexible video,” said Rob Lipps, executive vice president of Sonic Foundry. “By eliminating the barriers to wide-scale video capture, publishing and management, Sonic Foundry helps organizations build powerful content libraries and more quickly realize the value of video as a transformational communication technology.”
