‘Calling All Heroes’: Mediasite Saves the Day When Summer Snow Strikes Instructure’s User Conference
Instructure was ‘Calling All Heroes’ from across the globe at its fourth annual user conference, InstructureCon, earlier this summer in Park City, Utah.
More than 1,500 education professionals who use the company’s learning management system, Canvas, were on site to network and learn from each other during the outdoor conference. Attendees donned superhero capes while Star Wars Storm troopers, Superman, Iron Man, Wonder Woman, Spiderman and more wandered the conference floor.
Last week, Sonic Foundry sponsored the Technology in Business Schools Roundtable (TBSr) 2014 Conference.
TBSr provides opportunities for technology leaders in business schools to share best practices and collaborate with colleagues around the world. This year TBSr took place at Boise State University College of Business & Economics, and because Boise State is a Mediasite user, it streamed the entire conference live and on-demand for TBSr members.
We’re excited to announce our partnership with the National Association of Broadcasters to broaden the reach and create more exposure for the 2014 NAB Show in Las Vegas this week.

You’ve heard of hybrid events. You know that they can help you expand the reach of your event by including those who simply cannot attend via webcasting. But do you know what those remote attendees should experience and what the easiest and most reliable way to make that happen is?
Asking yourself the following questions will help you define your goals for webcasting your event, and help you find the right partner who can hide the complexity and execute a flawless hybrid experience.
It’s day one of a big conference and while most attendees are shaking hands, trading business cards and clamoring for the best seat to catch the opening keynote, there’s a small number of individuals sitting at their office computers sipping coffee and firing up their internet connection.

It’s hard to believe that it’s been a decade since we first partnered with two of the biggest AV shows in the world, but here we are, once again, capturing the InfoComm 2013 and UBTech 2013 conferences in Orlando, Fla. this week.
We’ve been the streaming sponsor for both shows for the past 10 years, allowing people all over the world to attend these shows remotely via Mediasite webcasts.
