Stocks in this article: SOFO

MADISON, Wis., July 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- eSchool Media readers voted Mediasite by Sonic Foundry, Inc. (NASDAQ: SOFO), the trusted market leader for video management and academic, enterprise and event webcasting, one of the 10 best higher education technology platforms.

Educators and school administrators from across the United States nominated their favorite ed-tech product or service for the 2012-2013 eSchool Media Readers' Choice Awards. This annual awards program recognizes the top 50 K-12 and higher education products and services. Nearly 1,300 readers voted, including Mediasite user Michael Sutterfield of University of Cincinnati.

"We use Mediasite for streaming and managing all of our lecture captures. I appreciate that everything is included in one place, with no additional downloads of materials required," said Sutterfield, equipment and applications specialist for University of Cincinnati College of Allied Health Sciences.

"We asked readers to tell us how they're using their favorite ed-tech products to improve teaching, learning or school administration – and to what effect," said Dennis Pierce, eSchool Media editor-in-chief. "Sonic Foundry's inclusion in these awards demonstrates that its solutions are making a real difference in schools and colleges."

Earlier this year, top analyst firm Frost & Sullivan named Sonic Foundry the global lecture capture market leader for the sixth consecutive year. Frost & Sullivan cited the company's worldwide brand visibility resulting from its deep customer satisfaction and loyalty and trusted innovation as its keys to success.

Mediasite has also been honored with multiple Readers' Choice Awards from Streaming Media Magazine and Streaming Media Europe in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011 and Elearning! Magazine readers also named Mediasite the Best Presentation Tool and Best Mobile Learning Tool in the Best of 2008 Elearning! Awards.

"It is a tremendous honor for our Mediasite webcasting solution to receive accolades from end users who read eSchool and eCampus News. Our partnership with our customers is what's most important to us, and it's rewarding to be recognized by them as one of the best higher education technology platforms," said Gary Weis, chief executive officer of Sonic Foundry.  

Trusted by more than 1,000 colleges and universities, the patented Mediasite webcasting and video content management system quickly and cost-effectively automates the capture, management, delivery and search of live and on-demand streaming videos and rich media presentations that combine video with slides.
