Sonic Foundry (News - Alert) (SOFO), a company offering video content management and distribution for education, business and government, recently won 2012 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for Market Share Leadership.
Through its flagship solution, Mediasite, Sonic Foundry has remained the market share leader and promises to consistently enhance the features and functionality.
Mediasite, installed in universities, community colleges and technical institutions worldwide, provides seamless, automated capture, distribution and management of lectures, presentations and campus events.
Mediasite Recorders automatically capture high-definition video with high-resolution presentation materials from laptops, tablets, document cameras or whiteboards, and then webcasts these rich, immersive presentations live or on-demand to any computer or mobile device.
Mediasite Recorders also provide live streaming, which has increasingly been leveraged for webcasts of commencements, guest speakers and sporting events.
"Sonic Foundry is dedicated to providing a highly intuitive and interactive rich media experience to content creators and viewers alike on PC, Mac or mobile device – iOS, Android and BlackBerry," said Frost & Sullivan (News - Alert) Global Director Mukul Krishna. "In addition to flexible playback that includes the ability to rewind, pause, slow down, or fast forward to critical content, powerful search capabilities allow students to quickly pinpoint the information they need in any presentation or course catalog."
Over the past three years, Sonic Foundry has experienced huge demand for its Mediasite solution and has done many campus-wide deployments. Students also remain avid fans of Mediasite, reporting increased retention and improvement in course scores.
In surveys, these students select courses that leverage Mediasite in conjunction with in-class lecture over traditional classroom environments.
The company has employed an extensive network of regional channel partners, combined with direct sales to achieve penetration into emerging markets. This heightened brand visibility has enabled it to remain the go-to vendor for institutions around the globe.
