University Of California San Francisco Webcasts Over Two Thousand Classes In 10 Months Via Mediasite Lecture Capture Technology

LAS VEGAS, June 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  InfoComm Booth #C9141 -- Sonic Foundry, Inc. (NASDAQ: SOFO), the trusted market leader for lecture capture, enterprise and event webcasting, today announced that the University of California San Francisco's selection of Mediasite as its lecture capture and video content management platform has received positive feedback from faculty and students alike.

"Mediasite exceeded all of our expectations and worked immediately once we went live," said John DeAngelo, director of educational technology services at UCSF and former associate dean for information technology in Temple's Fox School of Business.

With 3,500 graduate medical students and health professionals, UCSF is a leading university dedicated to promoting health worldwide through graduate-level education in the life sciences and health professions.

In the spring of 2011, after a failed lecture capture launch with another vendor, UCSF switched to Mediasite by Sonic Foundry. The school was seeking a platform with a robust video content management system, the ability to stream live lectures to mobile devices and easy integration for rapid deployment. UCSF has now webcasted 2,050 Mediasite presentations in just 10 months with 63,000 views, making it the largest number of classes DeAngelo has recorded in such a short amount of time.

"I've been struck by the degree by which Mediasite has been embraced at UCSF, but I understand why because the material taught in class is dense, very complex. The most valuable thing in a medical education is time. Mediasite allows students to be able to watch and listen to lectures and other presentations at their convenience," DeAngelo said. "Faculty adoption of Mediasite lecture capture is also very high due to its ease of use. Instructors don't have to change their behavior. All I had to do was ask them 'Would you like to come on board, do nothing, and we capture all your instruction?' It was just that easy. We chose Mediasite because of its history, because of the quality of the staff and the support and the solidness of the product. Mediasite has the best video management system out there."
