Our Mediasite Events team predicts live TV broadcasts from show floors is going to become the new norm in the events industry. Attendees of IMEX America (Worldwide Exhibition for Incentive Travel, Meetings & Events) — the largest events industry expo in the U.S., in Las Vegas, Nev. recently — got a sneak peek.
Mediasite Showcase, Sonic Foundry’s new online video portal, allows you to create an online destination for all your Mediasite content and gives you a quick way to create a corporate or campus YouTube.

Demand for academic video from the “YouTube generation” of students is growing at an astronomical rate, and universities large and small are evaluating how best to harness the power of video to meet this new level of student expectations and broaden the reach of their institutions. Video is foundational to the cutting edge trends in higher education today, including personalized education, flipped instruction and MOOCs.
Do you have an academic video strategy?
We live in an era where video, live-streamed and recorded, is rapidly becoming our primary source for learning something new. Today, leading corporations and education institutions like yours have amazing opportunities to harness the power of video to advance their message, improve collaboration, expand business opportunities and educate the masses.
But technology advocates at your institutions face tons of challenges as they try to improve productivity and capture institutional knowledge in this video-enabled era.
On our campus we have a lot of different schools using Mediasite. And yet you realize, when you see this broad array of people using Mediasite at universities and businesses around the world, how many different applications there are for it, and just problems and solutions that I wouldn't have thought of. It's good to be able to learn from other people's experiences.
