Webcast provider Sonic Foundry, Inc. (NASDAQ: SOFO) said that its customers Videosurgery in Australia and Tilburg School of Economics and Management in the Netherlands are finalists in the 2012 AV Technology End-User Awards for their creative uses of the company's webcasting platform Mediasite.
Professor and surgeon Andrew Renaut runs a private practice and started Videosurgery to stream surgical procedures live and on-demand via Mediasite, providing more continuing education opportunities to virtually step inside the operating room. Located at Brisbane Private Hospital in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, Videosurgery's Vs-2 broadcast system is specifically designed to remotely capture video from dedicated cameras in the operating room and then to webcast these to a secure audience via Mediasite.
Tilburg University's iSTAR Learning Project is recognized for its use of Mediasite as its core educational technology for lecture capture and flipped instruction. iSTAR stands for "Interactive web lectures, Snippets-practice, Try and test, Ask questions, and Results" and focuses on in-depth applications of blended e-learning in the introductory courses of management accounting and financial accounting. The program uses short studio-recorded lecture blocks with case studies and self-guided student exercises.
Winners are selected by jury and will be announced at the NewBay Media Awards Ceremony June 12 at InfoComm 2012 in Las Vegas.
