Sonic Foundry, Inc. has expanded its HD family of recorders and streaming software with the Mediasite ML HD Recorder – a product especially suited for live events, conferences, inaugurations and webcasting that occurs on the move.
"As HD streaming on the web becomes more prevalent on mainstream broadcast and corporate sites, webinar viewers are starting to expect it, and it's a great option for event producers,” Jan Ozer, streaming video producer, consultant and author recently stated. “Sonic Foundry's (News - Alert) latest releases respond to clear trends in the video market - Mediasite 6 for streaming to all mobile devices and now HD streaming with the new ML Recorder."
High definition, proficient grade webcasts can be captured in real-time and played back with Sonic’s new unit, which will be available in March 2012.
Live or on-demand webcast can stream in the highest resolution with the ML HD Recorder. Both professional and customer video devices can now offer better flexibility with the HD/SDI broadcast standard input of the ML HD. H.264 video up to 720p and 30 frames per second can be captured and encoded and offered in real-time.
"Sonic Foundry's driving mission has always been customer-focused innovation backed by solid releases and support,” said Gary Weis, CEO of Sonic Foundry. “With the release of the new Mediasite ML HD Recorder, our customers will continue to experience the best possible streaming quality, not only from the end-user's perspective, but also for the technicians who work behind the scenes to ensure quality webcasts. Mediasite continues to set the standard for providing unparalleled quality in its enterprise webcasting platform."
Combined with the Mediasite 6 webcasting and video content management platform, any computer or mobile device can receive the ML HD-recorded data immediately. With ML HD’s omnipresent mobile playback, schools, corporations and governments can rapidly increase the use of lecture capture and video content management at any stage in their video streaming initiatives.
