This week Sonic Foundry is en force in Vegas for EduComm June 7-9 and InfoComm June 9-11.

We've got tons going on (you can see some pics here, with more to come).

The big news

-       Mediasite 5.4 and the new Mediasite ML Recorder. It's slimmer and sleeker. Lucky souls who've had a sneak peak have used words like "sexy," "sweet" and a smattering of "cute."

-       And 5.4 includes a completely redesigned Recorder interface, integrated closed captioning, multicast support for Silverlight and other playback extras like a new widescreen video-only encoding profile and Firefox 3.6 support.

EduComm at the Mirage

-       We're the titanium sponsor and capturing five conference tracks and live streaming featured sessions to EduComm Virtual (see the conference tweets: #educomm).

-       And of course we're talking to new friends and old in the exhibit hall.

-       Yesterday, Mediasite customer Rob Rasberry from Drexel University spoke on "Lecture Capture Out of the Box".

-       Sonic Foundry VP Sean Brown presents "The Past, Present and Future of Academic Webcasting" today at 2:30 pm.

-       We announced the University of Toledo is using Mediasite to help graduates find jobs and New York Law School standardized on Mediasite for lecture capture and rich media hosting

-       Last but not least, we're giving away a Flip MinoHD at 3:30 p.m. at our booth 34-37 (just drop your business card before then, and stick around - you must be present to win).

InfoComm at the Las Vegas Convention Center

-       You can see our 2-minute overview here, via Mediasite of course.

Sonic Foundry kicks off InfoComm 2010 with a press conference announcing the new ML Recorder and Mediasite 5.4

-       We kicked off with a press conference today at our InfoComm booth N627, guaranteed to show you how to lose some webcasting weight this summer

-       We're webcasting about a dozen training sessions for InfoComm OnDemand and the Twitter stream (if you are into that kind of thing) is starting to heat up: #infocomm

-       Plus we're holding our first manufacturer's trainings; we're a member of InfoComm International's CTS Renewal Unit Program. Our two technical training workshops, "Setting Up, Configuring and Using the Mediasite Recorder" on June 9 and "Integrating Mediasite" on June 11, will help over 60 attendees maintain their Certified Technology Specialist certification.

-       Plus tonight, Wednesday June 9 at 5:30 p.m. we'll be meeting up for an informal gathering of Mediasite users in the Plaza Bar at the Hilton Las Vegas.

Seem like a heavy schedule? Yeah, it is. But lighten up. It's Vegas.
