Last week analyst firm Aragon Research released its fourth annual Globe for Enterprise Video report. And for the fourth straight year, after a rigorous, independent evaluation of 17 companies, Sonic Foundry was named a leader for its comprehensive strategy, performance and global reach.

We are blushing (and celebrating)!

Blog_EVGlobe17fnlEspecially when we heard Jim Lundy, Aragon founder, CEO and author of the report say, “It’s very impressive that they have continued to secure their space in the leadership category four years running.”

He continued, “Sonic Foundry’s flagship offering, Mediasite, is a full Enterprise Video Platform. It supports the entire video workflow from integrated content creation/capture to management and delivery of interactive video for training, corporate webcasts, and enterprise communications. With strengths in live webcasting, video delivery and lecture capture, Sonic Foundry has continued to expand its offerings with a focus on managing and capturing all types of video, including user-generated, mobile, and unified communications.”

The growing use of video has raised workplace expectations for seamless, high-quality, real-time video interaction with colleagues in support of business activities. Mediasite meets this demand with the video platform as well as our flexible deployment options that include cloud, on-premises or hybrid; our seamless behind-the-firewall streaming capabilities, and products that encourage engaging collaboration and communication such as Mediasite Join.

Here’s a partial list of the company’s demonstrated strengths that were called out in the report:

  • Strong integration with video conferencing systems and learning and content management platforms
  • Powerful video portal with enterprise YouTube user interface
  • Robust video search and editing capabilities
  • Effective analytics
