Florida Installs My Mediasite as Part of its Enterprise Video Strategy -->
The university deployed My Mediasite campus wide, giving users access to record, upload, manage and publish their own videos using their laptop's built-in camera. Because the tool is backed by Mediasite Enterprise Video Platform, the content is searchable, secure and organized in one place.
"The Mediasite Desktop Recorder in My Mediasite is easier for us to maintain than other software-based options. The app is just so easy to use, I know even our most tech-challenged staff will quickly adopt it. And because it's a web client, our user-generated content will automatically upload to Mediasite," said
The presentations will be closed captioned, and students can search video for keywords with My Mediasite's powerful optical character recognition that automatically indexes slide text.
The university began implementing My Mediasite into classrooms this semester and in the next few months plans to put it in the hands of hundreds of people on campus. Currently the university has 16,000 presentations on its server, and Smith said My Mediasite will lead to even more content being generated at an even faster pace. To date the amount of Mediasite video increases nearly 85% each year, and views grow 330% year over year.
"Before Mediasite, our students watched lectures. Now, they experience lectures," Smith said. "Mediasite's ability to clearly display content by separating it from video in a rich media format is one of the innovative features that have helped to improve academic video on our campus."
