Live streaming of sessions helps largest MPI chapter reach more members

MADISON, Wis. — February 7, 2012 — Sonic Foundry, Inc. (NASDAQ: SOFO), the trusted market leader for lecture capture, enterprise and event webcasting, today announced a partnership with Meeting Professionals International Chicago Area Chapter (MPI-CAC) to webcast TechCon Chicago 2012.

Meeting Professionals International is the meeting and event industry’s largest global community that provides connections for meeting professionals. TechCon Chicago 2012 attendees will be introduced to various event technology solutions and learn how they can be incorporated into their events. They will also learn how technology can help solve common challenges that meeting planners face, such as audience engagement, event marketing and tracking. Participants can register online for both the hybrid event, which will be held February 8 at the Holiday Inn Mart Plaza in Chicago, Illinois, and live webcast to an online audience via Mediasite Events by Sonic Foundry, a Gold Level Partner. MPI-CAC offers 4.5 Continuing Education Clock Hours for online viewers.

“For MPI-CAC members unable to travel to the event, Mediasite allows them to watch online, which is a huge help,” said Tina Reedy, chair of the TechCon Committee. “Not only do the webcasts give them the option to watch sessions live or on-demand, they also open the event up to more people and promotes the essence of what TechCon Chicago 2012 is aiming to teach – that technology can help solve challenges that meeting planners face. Plus, it’s a great way to help attendees earn Clock Hours early in the year and have fun doing so.”
