Mediasite users don’t just talk about their best practices, successes and goals to their colleagues across the hall. On a daily basis, customers worldwide share, connect and learn from each other via the Mediasite Community, a vibrant online group that’s 2,200 members strong and growing. They may be from opposite sides of the world, on separate coasts or just a city away, but they are united by similar questions, experiences and ambitions for their Mediasite video deployments.
With a focus on fostering and deepening these valuable relationships, we’re providing more opportunities for them to interact face-to-face. This year, we hit the road with a series of regional Mediasite Chapter meetings hosted by customers passionate about video and eager to be part of the global Mediasite Community expansion.
