Sonic Foundry Aids Law Firm to Connect 29 Offices in 20 Countries

By Anuradha Shukla, TMCnet Contributor

With the rapid advances in computing and communications technologies, interactive multimedia applications, such as videoconferencing, over wide-area networks are becoming feasible. In recent years the capabilities of the common Internet infrastructure have increased to an extent where data intensive communication services may mature to become popular, reliable applications. Videoconferencing over IP can be seen as such a highly prominent candidate.

Recently, Sonic Foundry, Inc., a provider of rich media webcasting and knowledge management, today announced Clifford Chance, one of the world's leading law firms, has selected Mediasite for corporate communication, legal training and legal briefs.  Clifford Chance has offices in 20 countries and 3,200 legal advisers globally.

The firm had been relying on videoconferencing for communication with its professional workforce and clients. But with no easy way to record or archive the content, the IT department at Clifford Chance was challenged to find a more cost- and time-effective solution for disseminating information. Enter Mediasite.

Anthony Vigneron, global collaboration services manager at Clifford Chance said that during selection process, the company discovered that Mediasite definitely offered the cleanest presentation and online delivery and best met all company’s requirements.

According to Vigneron, the time savings that Mediasite offers in the creation of content is invaluable. Vigneron added that in the old days, if we had to edit the tape of the videoconference, it would take a minimum of five days to turn around the content and now the company is able to publish it 15 to 20 minutes after the event.

Various business services within Clifford Chance have been using Mediasite to record and webcast presentations to both internal and external audiences. Vigneron's teams have streamlined the process so the business services can easily book the Mediasite Recorders, reserve the rooms and organize their recordings. Vigneron continued that the company provides the Mediasite webcasting platform and presenters do what they want, when they want.
