It doesn't show up on a feature check list. It's not a section of most RFPs. It's not something you typically ask a customer to show you about a product, and yet, it is one of the important reasons Sonic Foundry's customers tell us they are with us - the relationship.
For anyone who's ever wished we'd turn the camera around during a webinar and show the gear, this is one you won't want to miss. And it's free. Just register before the event at www.sonicfoundry.com/webinar.
Sonic Foundry's own Shane Tracy (Director of Event Services and Training) and John Pollard (Mediasite Product Manager and fellow blogger) will present "Recipe for Success: How to Record a High Quality Multimedia Presentation."
The next installment in our Mediasite Tip series, what's the difference between "Everyone" and "Anonymous" in terms of viewer permissions and security roles? And what are the pros and cons of each for different Mediasite applications?

During our Mediasite User Conference last month (UNLEASH 2009) I happened upon a conversation Dharmesh and John were having about folders and permissions. Dharmesh was at the Mediasite Guru post and one of our customers had been having trouble with the "add like" function and permissions.
I thought the info that Dharmesh went on to share was excellent - something I didn't know - and so the three of us decided to repeat the conversation with me behind the camera, Dharmesh as our special guest and John playing Oprah.
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."
When you show people the ramifications of their decisions, they change their behavior.
