MADISON, Wis. — May 12, 2015 — Sonic Foundry, Inc. (NASDAQ: SOFO), the trusted global leader for video creation and management solutions, today announced its position as a Leader in the Aragon Research Globe™ for Video Content Management, 2015.

The report, authored by Jim Lundy, founder and CEO of Aragon, and David Mario Smith, Aragon research director, assesses technology and service providers of solutions that advance the ability of corporations to effectively manage and deliver video. Aragon completed a rigorous analysis of 14 video content management vendors, comparing and evaluating their strategies, performance and global reach. Aragon defines “Leaders” as vendors with comprehensive strategies that not only align with industry direction and market demand, but also effectively perform against those strategies.

“Enterprises are creating, sharing and consuming all types of video content on many different platforms at a growing rate,” Lundy said. “Enterprises today are looking for VCM providers, such as Sonic Foundry, who support the full video lifecycle, including a video portal that allows for sharing and searching within the content and effective analytics.”

Aragon attributes Sonic Foundry’s leadership position to these demonstrated strengths:
• Strong customer support
• Robust video search capabilities
• Effective analytics
• Enterprise YouTube user interface with a powerful video portal
• Strong integration with video conferencing systems and learning and content management systems

“We’re honored to be recognized as a leader in video content management by Aragon Research for the second year in a row,” said Gary Weis, Sonic Foundry CEO. “Our customers trust us as their enterprise video partner, committed to driving innovation, accelerating video’s adoption and facilitating more effective and impactful communication to strengthen their organizations.
