MADISON, Wis. - Sonic Foundry, Inc. (NASDAQ: SOFO), the recognized market leader for rich media webcasting and knowledge management, today opened UNLEASH 2008, the annual Mediasite User Conference. In just its second year UNLEASH 2008 has attracted nearly 200 attendees from 30 states and seven countries, and become an important rich media resource for universities and corporations to share Mediasite best practices and learn innovative webcasting applications.
"UNLEASH is a great opportunity to meet with not only the engineers and technical staff from Sonic Foundry but also a chance to engage to some of the best minds from the world of rich media," said Kelly Parke, York University and chair of Mediasite User Group Steering Committee. "Meeting other Mediasite users from around the world is eye opening. I came to the realization that we all have the same passion to empower our communities using this technology. By sharing our experiences at UNLEASH, we enrich the global community with knowledge and give a global voice to our respective Mediasite communities."
