Sonic Foundry celebrates its 11th annual Unleash Mediasite User Conference this week.

Starting today, a global community of Mediasite users, thought leaders and video pioneers from education and the enterprise are gathering at the Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center in Madison, Wis. and online via Mediasite to collaborate and sharpen their skills.

Over three days, attendees will discover more than 50 best practice and educational sessions and pre-conference workshops and interact with Sonic Foundry’s product and support teams. The distinguished keynote speakers include Alan Greenberg and Steve Vonder Haar of Wainhouse Research and Margot Douaihy, editorial director of AV Technology.

Unleash 2017 will be live streamed live via Mediasite to registered customers unable to attend in Madison. Online attendees can watch conference sessions in their Unleash Showcase, an interactive Mediasite-based online video portal. After the conference, all attendees will have access to all recorded sessions.

“Unleash and the Mediasite Community are the glue that keeps my video strategy at University of Auckland, New Zealand together. It’s by far the most effective professional learning and development experience I get each year,” said nine-time Unleash attendee Mark Dashper. “I’m challenged in multiple ways, and I always come away full of innovative and exciting ideas that I want to try out immediately. I rate it as the number one conference I have attended worldwide.”
