At our Mediasite Linkedin group, there's a discussion going on around how to get presenters to relax in front of the camera. It's funny how sometimes the hardest parts of our jobs have nothing to do with the technology, isn't it?
There are a number of good suggestions from that discussion:
Have casual conversation with the presenter while in front of the camera before hand.
Have the presenter think of the camera as "a supportive friend."
Time for the third and final installment of MUG TV at UNLEASH 2009.

Thanks to everyone who appeared on camera and special thanks to dynamic duo Kelly Parke and Scott Holcomb for using their limited UNLEASH down time to bring you MUG TV.
Here's the second installment of MUG TV. This episode is chock full o' UNLEASH goodness.
Kelly Parke and Scott Holcomb captured snippets from CEO Rimas Buinevicius' opening remarks, CTO Monty Schmidt's keynote, feedback from attendees on the Mediasite road map and a spur of the moment gift presentation to Monty from TU Delft and Mediamission.
When you show people the ramifications of their decisions, they change their behavior.
