Sonic Foundry Presents AV Over IP streaming On Integrated Systems Europe 2019

Integration with NewTek NDI® offers Mediasite users more options for centralized video recording

Amsterdam, The Netherlands (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - ISE stand 11-F140 - Sonic Foundry, Inc. (OTCQB: SOFO), the renowned global market leader for the creation and management of video images, will present its latest link between the video recording applications of Mediasite and NewTek's NDI® technology at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2019, which will week takes place in Amsterdam. The integration creates the possibility to produce streaming videos more efficiently.

NDI, or Network Device Interface, is an IP standard that allows video, audio and metadata of high quality to be shared between different devices on a local network. Thanks to the integration with the Mediasite applications, video images can be sent to a central, connected location in a more flexible manner.

"The integration of Mediasite with NDI will help us to more efficiently film lectures and events on campus from anywhere, without having to worry about complex setup, expensive material or available bandwidth," says Trond Sørli. , multimedia manager at Kristiania University College in the Norwegian capital Oslo. "We simply install two NDI PTZ cameras from NewTek, together with two Connect Sparks, give the slides to a presenter and connect them to our mobile Mediasite Recorder. And best of all: I can control the camera via NDI with a joystick from my desk, while our students and other followers can watch the stream in real time. "

Video applications that work with NDI, such as Mediasite, share video images in real time over that network, from anywhere. That means fewer distance restrictions and much more flexible options for recording video images on campuses, companies and events without the hassle of putting all the material in too small spaces.

"The video world is moving to computers, software and networks. Mediasite in combination with NDI is an integrated and cost-effective video management solution, because NDI can be used on existing networks without new network infrastructure, "said Michael Kornet, executive vice president and general manager of NDI at NewTek. "Less specific IP-based send and receive devices are needed, which results in unprecedented gains in terms of efficiency, cost savings and creativity."

"Boardrooms, training rooms and classrooms are increasingly equipped with video technology to help employees, teachers and students learn and communicate. As the opportunities for collaboration in these rooms become increasingly important, technology, such as Mediasite, must be able to grow as and when use increases. We are excited about the integration between NewTek's Mediasite and NDI, because it offers our customers a new way to record and broadcast videos that is more flexible than ever before ", says Rob Lipps, EPP of Sonic Foundry.

Sonic Foundry will present the integration at ISE 2019, from 5 to 8 February, at stand 11-F140. NewTek will also exhibit the integration, at stand 10-K160.
