I love, love, love all things events and technology. If you can’t tell by my tweets, Facebook posts and all my other social media interactions, I love to talk about events and the tools that help us do what we do better. In June 2011, I partnered with an organization called imbookin to bring you PlannerTech – an event technology showcase. This weekly blog series is going to help continue to expose you to new tools you need to be aware of as an event planner. Also, in case you missed it, PlannerTech could be coming soon to your area!
Today, we’re talking about Mediasite
Your name: Erica St. Angel
Company/Tool Name: Mediasite Events by Sonic Foundry
What is the “problem” that your tool seeks to solve?
Two key issues:
1. Not everyone who wants to be at your event can be there.
2. People who are there may want to watch again when they get home, or watch a track they may have missed, or share what they experienced with other colleagues.
While we believe strongly in the power of face to face meetings and events, budget constraints and travel restrictions sometimes make it difficult for many people who want to be onsite to get there.
We provide webcasting services to create hybrid events, virtual conferences and online meetings, so now the remote audience can also join in, get the information they need and further that relationship with your organization and your brand.
