Three key developments in school AV technology

For example, the latest version of Sonic Foundry’s Mediasite video platform now supports mobile video uploads from an iPhone or iPad—and this functionality will be available soon for Android devices as well, said Renee Thomas, vice president of marketing.

“The day is quickly approaching where everything that’s important on your campus … will be documented with video. With Mediasite Enterprise Video Platform, we’ve engineered a video ecosystem that’s secure, searchable, easily managed, and open to multiple content sources,” said Rob Lipps, executive vice president of Sonic Foundry, in a press release. “We’ve helped our customers … achieve comprehensive capture, regardless of the video source.”

And Broadcast Pix, which offers live video production tools, announced new software that connects any of the company’s video switchers and production systems to Dropbox, Google Drive, Microsoft SkyDrive, or any cloud-based resource—giving users access to graphics, animations, and video clips saved to the cloud during live video productions.

That means users can ingest video content uploaded to the web from a mobile device and use it in a live video feed, said Broadcast Pix CEO Steve Ellis. The software is available as a free upgrade to Broadcast Pix customers who are under service agreements.
