"Sonic Foundry is dedicated to providing a highly intuitive and interactive rich media experience to content creators and viewers alike on PC, Mac or mobile device—iOS, Android and BlackBerry," said Frost & Sullivan Global Director Mukul Krishna. "In addition to flexible playback that includes the ability to rewind, pause, slow down, or fast forward to critical content, powerful search capabilities allow students to quickly pinpoint the information they need in any presentation or course catalog."
Captured lectures are accessed using single sign-on through LMSes such as Blackboard, Moodle, Instructure, Desire2Learn or Sakai. Mediasite EX, Sonic Foundry's video content management system, provides a central repository to archive, index, manage, secure and track all Mediasite content as well as video content ingested from other recording devices or applications.
"Mediasite EX assists institutions in gaining greater insight into usage statistics and viewing trends by means of its advanced analytics," added Krishna. "It also provides automated scheduling, directory-based authentication and keyword search across all presentation slides and audio tracks."
Mediasite's ease of use, integration capabilities, and scalability are major contributing factors to customer loyalty. Over the past three years, Sonic Foundry has witnessed increasing campus-wide deployments. Students also remain avid fans of Mediasite, reporting increased retention and improvement in course scores. In surveys, these students select courses that leverage Mediasite in conjunction with in-class lecture over traditional classroom environments.In recognition of its outstanding performance in the lecture capture solutions market, Frost & Sullivan is pleased to recognize Sonic Foundry with the 2012 Global Market Share Leadership Award.
