Sonic Foundry Announces Winners Of 10th Annual Enterprise Video Awards

Stocks in this article: SOFO

Sonic Foundry, Inc. (NASDAQ: SOFO), the trusted leader for video creation and management solutions, today announced the winners of the 10 th annual Enterprise Video Awards, formerly the Rich Media Impact Awards.

The awards honor excellence in Mediasite integration into business, education, health and government. This year’s finalists achieved measurable improvements in information accessibility, cost-savings, efficiency and productivity through Mediasite.

Winners were honored at Unleash, the global Mediasite User Conference in Madison, Wis., and the awards ceremony can be viewed on-demand at http://bit.ly/1h6zMlu.

“Congratulations to this year’s Enterprise Video Award winners, who join the ranks of over 160 organizations around the world recognized for their dynamic video initiatives,” said Rob Lipps, executive VP, Sonic Foundry. “Our customers are creating rich media in their classrooms and board rooms, but it’s so much more than that — everything is managed, tagged, searched and secured with Mediasite. We continue to be amazed by the innovative ways our customers are using video to revolutionize how they work, connect and play.”

Global Reach Award: Michigan Virtual University

“Mediasite allows us to quickly and efficiently transform face-to-face lectures into online degree programs at Obafemi Awolowo University where none were present.” Kirby Milton, VP of Operations, Michigan Virtual University

Innovation Award: ICTISE University of the Free State, South Africa

“Before Mediasite it was not possible to provide cost-effective daily support to teachers and learners across the Free State. Now, we are recognized in South Africa as the state with the highest pass rate.” Sarietjie Musgrave, head of ICTISE

Outcomes Award: Zorgportaal Rijnmond

“The future of healthcare depends on solutions like this. We have enormous challenges in healthcare, but with Zorgportaal Rijnmond we can easily save money and time and increase the quality of patient consultations.” Florian Visser, project leader, Zorgportaal Rijnmond

Prolific Use Award: Bloomsburg University and University of Florida (tie)

“When we upgraded to Mediasite version 6.1 at the beginning of 2013 and opened the My Mediasite portal to all faculty and students, user-generated content took off.” Asa Kelley, media technician, Bloomsburg University

“In 2013 we shot the moon. We saw increased viewership of 215 percent with over 1.3 million views in the calendar year. And we do not anticipate our growth to slow down at all. With last year’s rollout of My Mediasite we look forward to opening the door to more users creating more content than ever before.” Brian Smith, IT specialist, University of Florida

Rapid Adoption Award: Massey University

“After seven years of persistence, and a bucket load of patience, Massey University is not only adopting Mediasite, but hitting it hard with a multimillion dollar, multi-campus scale-up that we like to call the rich media learning project, or RML for short.” Matt Alexander, multimedia developer, Massey University

Video in Education Scholarship: Duke University School of Medicine and Florida State University’s Geoset Studios

“Approximately five years ago, before Mediasite came to Duke Medicine, we had at least five different capture technologies. Employees were not able to create content either on a large or small scale. People didn’t know where to go to find their educational content or even how to view it. We now maximize the curriculum by delivering the content from anywhere at any time with Mediasite.” Sharon Kaiser, educational technologist, Duke University School of Medicine

“Before Mediasite we used handheld cameras to record FSU research and put it on YouTube or the FSU website. And now we have high-quality, beautiful videos that are easy to make, easy to encourage students to do, and easy to help them share their research, share their passions.” Phillip, a student and Geoset Studios worker

Video Maverick Award: Lawrence Grafton, Dell

"When the program started it was just me with a camera, recording everything to give people the idea of how the system works. Over time, with My Mediasite, people were able to use the system individually. As time grew, through a real grassroots effort, we’ve been able to achieve hockey stick growth.” Lawrence Grafton, creator, DellTV

Trusted by more than 2,800 customers worldwide, Mediasite Enterprise Video Platform quickly and cost-effectively automates the capture, management, delivery and search of live and on-demand streaming videos and rich media presentations.
