Independent Research Firm Acknowledges Sonic Foundry In Video Platforms For The Enterprise Report

Sonic Foundry, Inc. (NASDAQ: SOFO), the trusted cornerstone of your enterprise, campus and event video content management and webcasting strategy, was among the select companies that Forrester Research, Inc. invited to participate in its report, The Forrester Wave™: Video Platforms for the Enterprise, Q1 2013.

Sonic Foundry, the decade-long leader in academic video capture, believes that its appearance in the report reaffirms the company’s recent evolution to Mediasite Enterprise Video Platform and solidly establishes Mediasite as a recognized solution for comprehensive video content management. Mediasite Enterprise Video Platform provides enterprises and campuses an integrated approach for creating, managing and distributing all video-based content. It allows users to import any video, regardless of where or how it was created or recorded, and transform it into rich video that is indexed, searched, secured and played back on any device from desktops and tablets to smart phones.

According to Forrester, “Sonic Foundry’s portal applications and video player provide an excellent user experience, and its media capture appliances simplify webcast recording. Sonic Foundry has expanded beyond webcasting with the recent introduction of its desktop recorder and the addition of features to manage video content other than webcasts.”

Forrester evaluated 23 criteria of enterprise video platform vendors. Sonic Foundry scored a perfect 5 out of 5 points in the webcasting features category, and scored 4 out of 5 possible points in search and metadata support, workflow, video file ingest options and security categories.

“Customers like the simplified operation and turnkey functionality of Madison, Wisconsin-based Sonic Foundry’s media recording appliances to synchronize content. They also like the rich playback experience for viewers. Sonic Foundry is unique in providing OCR [optical character recognition] to automatically index the text in slides, which makes it easy to search for specific webcast content. It is focused now on becoming more multipurpose. Sonic Foundry added a desktop recorder feature to support user-generated content uploads without its media recording appliances,” the report states.
