What happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas. Last week Sonic Foundry took over the city for UBTech and InfoComm, and we’re excited to share some big news that we made while there.
We announced a unified communications and collaboration solution, Mediasite Join, at InfoComm. Join integrates with leading conference services to share valuable knowledge, engage employees, improve communication and support collaboration.
We have an exciting new partnership with a research and education network in the New England area called OSHEAN. Its new Video Commons 2.0 program makes it more economical for universities, hospitals and non-profits to start video
learning initiatives. The use of video for flipped classrooms, teacher training, continuing medical education and telemedicine is rapidly gaining popularity. OSHEAN’s members can connect Mediasite to a central cloud, making it cost-effective and allowing them to instantly start their initiatives. More than 20,000 students are already benefiting from the partnership!
Check out all the media coverage about these announcements and more here, including this video taken by rAVe from the show floor.
