Recording and/or Webcasting/Live-Streaming: MediaSite


Livestream, Webcast, and Webstream


Mediasite is a video platform that enables the recording of presentations. Mediasite has features that allow recording and playback of two sources, for example your PowerPoint and yourself through your webcam or other connected Camera. Mediasite can process your recorded PowerPoint slides to enable viewers to click through the slides on playback, and even do a word search on the text in all the slides.

Live-streaming through this platform is only available through MediaSite hardware-equipped rooms (COM201 and ASC140).
