MADISON, Wis., Jan. 31, 2023 – Sonic Foundry, Inc. (NASDAQ: SOFO), the trusted leader in video capture, management and streaming solutions, and CTI Meeting Technology (CTI), the world’s premier event content management provider, today announced a new partnership to provide comprehensive event content solutions for global event organizers. These solutions combine the capabilities of CTI’s all-in-one event content platform cOASIS with video capture and distribution services from Sonic Foundry’s Video Solutions group. For the first time, event organizers will be able to outsource the management of abstracts, presentations and video content, and gain access to the world’s leading event content platform, with a single phone call.
Streaming video and remote attendance opportunities have become standard requirements for conferences, industry trade shows and other events over the past several years, and organizers have had to adapt in real time. Many have realized it can be challenging to provide attendees with easy, intuitive access to both video and non-video content when they are being managed through separate workflows. The integrated approach offered by CTI and Video Solutions represents a direct response to this challenge and will introduce a new standard for delivery time of on-demand event video content: one hour.
For a closer look at the value that CTI and Video Solutions can deliver, watch this short highlight reel from the American College of Surgeons Clinical Congress 2022, one of the first customers to enjoy the benefits of CTI and Video Solutions’ integrated workflow. (Highlight reel was produced by CNTV.)
Sonic Foundry Director of Business Development Donny Neufuss commented, “The future of event content management is all about integrated solutions. In the hybrid-first world, event planners and organizers shouldn’t have to rely on three or four different partners to manage presentations, abstracts, video content, etc. The market needs a comprehensive solution that enables event organizers to manage all their content – including video – in one place.”
CTI Chief Operations Officer Dr. Richard Rettenbacher added, “By packaging access to cOASIS with Sonic Foundry’s world-class video services, we can offer clients the same intuitive management capabilities for their video content that we currently offer for all other scientific assets. We are confident that our integrated product will set a new standard of simplicity and reliability in the event content services market.”
For those interested in learning more about the partnership, Video Solutions and CTI will be co-hosting a free webinar, Why Integrated Solutions are the Future of Event Content Management, on Tuesday, February 21, at 11:30 a.m. EST. Panelists will discuss current trends in the event content market, evolving audience expectations and the benefits of an integrated content services model.
