MCNC is very pleased to offer Mediasite Course and Event Capture Infrastructure Service available to all NCREN community education customers!

Mediasite is a Lecture Capture System that (when combined with management and storage tools) allows the video and/or screen capture of any event to be streamed live and/or archived for future viewing. This service provides the ability to record and deliver your online learning, interactive lectures and multimedia presentations automatically.  Mediasite offers the following solutions:

My Mediasite

My Mediasite empowers faculty, trainers, staff and students to create and share video, training modules, lectures or assignments wherever they are.

My Mediasite is an intuitive portal for content creators and curators to:

  • Publish their own video content to secure channels or catalogues
  • Record video and desktop content via the Mediasite Desktop Recorder
  • Upload content from PC, Mac AND mobile devices
  • Edit video content via the Mediasite online editor
  • Add feature rich presentation information to content like Web links, Q&A, Polls and more
  • Manage their own content security
  • Access analytics on their own content to observe viewing trends and content popularity

Mediasite Catch

Mediasite Catch is a software “podium-PC” capture solution that provides ease of use and simplicity for PC capture. This solution is designed for low-tech classrooms and offers the ability to capture the screen, video and audio and can support both ad-hoc and fully automated/scheduled recordings.

Mediasite Recorders

Mediasite recording and live streaming appliances are designed to fit any application and budget with support from a single source capture input to four (4) source capture inputs with full scheduling and room automation integration.  From simple applications where, only screen capture and audio is required, to advanced lecture halls and simulation rooms, Sonic Foundry recorders offer maximum flexibility and affordability.

Mediasite Join

Mediasite Join integrates with popular videoconference systems to natively capture video (H.323) and presentation (H.239) streams and automatically broadcast live and/or  publish to the Mediasite Video Platform .

Prior to the creation of our Mediasite Course and Event Capture Infrastructure Service, MCNC customers wishing to use Mediasite had two options for managing and storing Medisite content:

  1. Purchase and run servers in-house.
  2. Purchase hosted service from Mediasite.

For the first option, the costs of procuring and maintaining a management infrastructure can be costly and time consuming, especially on a small scale. The second option costs approximately 6 times what the MCNC service costs, and places the traffic outside of our state's high performance network.

In contrast, MCNC offers a Mediasite Storage Server service on NCREN (the North Carolina Research and Education Network) at a very low "per recorder" cost.

Whether you intend to stream events live, or archive them, you will need to purchase one or more Mediasite recorders. A recorder can be rack mounted into a room (RL) or carried to each event (ML). You can find details on Mediasite recorders by clicking here.
