BioMediaLab Highlighted in Software Vendor’s Promotional Video
The University of Maine BioMediaLab is featured in a new promotional video for Wowza Media Systems, one of the lab’s software providers.
The School of Biology and Ecology lab is an advanced technology-centric science new media lab in Murray Hall that recently started using Wowza, a versatile media streaming server that efficiently allows students access to online course video, prompting Wowza Media Systems to film a video spotlighting the lab’s work.
A cutting-edge technology environment, the BioMediaLab’s main focus is Synapse, a content learning management system. UMaine science faculty use the system to create a collaborative learning environment. Media such as videos, audio, slide shows, PDFs and other course material can be added to its courses. Wowza and Synapse allow easier streaming of video to numerous devices, no matter the file format.
The video can be viewed on Wowza’s website.
