Online video and rich media webcasts for the enterprise

The Mediasite Recorder sends the video of your presenter and their visual aids (laptop, tablet, whiteboard, document camera, visualiser) to the Mediasite Server, sitting securely inside your network, where your content is then streamed live to your internal viewers, and archived for immediate playback on-demand.

Mediasite offers both security and search engine optimization tools for webcasts, viewer and network analytics and integration with your existing enterprise infrastructure including learning and content management systems, room control systems, video conference systems and enterprise directories.

When it simply has to work, and theres no option to redo and edit, Mediasite delivers.
