We here at Team Mediasite like to take some time at the end of the year to look back at some of our favorite moments. Here are the highlights of 2016. Keep checking back in the coming days and weeks as we update the list.

1. New Logo! This fall we rolled out an entirely new look. Fifteen years ago, Mediasite was a room-based, desktop web streaming platform. Fast forward to 2016, and our users create and watch videos from anywhere – including their mobile devices. The new logo reflects this evolution. Fun fact: the mark pays tribute to our video roots. It’s a figurative representation a film reel.
