MADISON, Wis. — March 9, 2012 — Sonic Foundry, Inc. (NASDAQ: SOFO), the trusted market leader for lecture capture, enterprise and event webcasting, today announced its partnership with EDUCAUSE and the NorthEast Regional Computing Program (NERCOMP) to webcast the NERCOMP annual conference March 13-14 in Providence, Rhode Island.
NERCOMP is an association partner of EDUCAUSE aiming to enhance the communication and dissemination of information related to the use of computers, networks and information technology. Its focus is in education, academic research and educational administration in northeastern United States. This year’s NERCOMP 2012 Annual Conference will focus on how technology enhances or limits human interactions, and will for the first time be webcast live to an online audience using Mediasite 6 technology. Streaming on the Mediasite webcasting platform enables all presentations captured at the conference to be watched live or on-demand on iPads, iPhones, iPods, BlackBerrys and Android devices.
“Streaming live and on-demand sessions is a great resource for members unable to attend the actual event, or who prefer to create their own on-campus event. They can actively participate from anywhere – their home, office or even a mobile device – which allows more people to access the content. We are pleased to continue our eight year partnership with Sonic Foundry for our hybrid events,” said Catherine Yang, Senior Director of EDUCAUSE.
From their desktops or tablets or mobile devices, over 45 virtual attendees from campuses around the country will connect to the almost 500 in-person meeting attendees. Participants can register online for this hybrid event. To watch the webcasts on an iPhone or iPod, download the free Mediasite Mobile App.
