08 Jun Sonic Foundry's Mediasite moves to podcasts
Madison, Wis. – Sonic Foundry, a Madison-based provider of rich media communications technology, has customized its Mediasite system to record presentations and play them as podcasts, which can be played on iPods and other handheld devices.
Using this new feature, audio presentations such as classroom lectures, speeches by experts, and on-demand training sessions can be converted into MP3 media formats and downloaded through Mediasite catalogues. These recordings can then be played on the computer, or synchronized with an MP3 player, and taken anywhere.
The University of Pittsburgh has been using Mediasite for the last six months to create audio and video podcasts. The podcasts provide information such as audio additions to online course content, and lectures by professors for repeat viewing.
In addition, Sonic Foundry announced that Mediasite was used on a project that received the 2006 ARCHI-TECH AV Award, which recognizes audio/visual architectural products. The winning entry was the CDC Global Communications Building, which was designed by Waveguide Consulting.
