1 Mediasite Directory 7 continues to be supported in Mediasite 8

8.0.0 (Thursday, June 17, 2021)

New Features

Category Features
Channels

Simplified Mediasite to use channels in place of catalogs.

  • Channels have more options for interactivity and engagement
  • Channels have a modern UX
  • Links to converted catalogs will automatically redirect to the new channel.
Configuration Editor

Simplified configuration of Mediasite by eliminating job farm worker licensing.

Improved logging when Config Editor is used to Reset System Account, Reset System Maintenance Jobs, and updates to the Mediasite Directory.

Deliver

Simplified Deliver by removing support for Windows Media Services and IIS Media Services as there are no available operating systems that support those services.

Improved on-demand playback performance for Smooth Streaming content.

LTI

Updated the Mediasite integration with Blackboard using Native LTI. Note, this change requires a minimum version of Blackboard 9.1 Q4 2019 (version 3800).

Management Portal

Moved the processing of the Login Audit Export into an asynchronous job that will update progress back to the page while building the file for download.

Improved search results in Management Portal to support bulk editing of presentations.

Simplified Mediasite Recorder management from Management Portal.

Improved the bulk content management workflow in Management Portal.

  • Detailed progress information
  • Automatically continues after an error is encountered
  • Improved performance when operations are deleting files from storage
  • If an error is encountered, a detailed summary page will show just the presentations that could not be updated, and why they were not updated.
My Mediasite

Added standardized headers and footers with logo, navigation bar, user profile icon, and search bar (where applicable) to the following applications:

  • Showcase
  • Channels
  • My Mediasite
  • Management Portal
  • Search
  • Moderate
  • Polls
  • Tools

Added three standard themes: Light, Dark, and High contrast to the following applications:

  • Channels
  • My Mediasite
  • Management Portal
  • Search
  • Moderate
  • Polls
  • Tools

The high contrast theme has great WCAG color contrast ratios!

Simplified channel editing by allowing My Mediasite users to edit a sub-set of fields for any channel they have write permission to.

Showcase

Simplified the architecture of the Showcase application.

  • Responsive design - means only one app to customize/theme
  • Simplified customization - only one CSS and one JS file
  • Updated design to be more similar to Mediasite Channels and My Mediasite
Transcoder

Updated all the server-side transcode workflows to use AV Engine.

  • Zoom meeting import - to improve the streaming experience
  • Mosaic - to reduce storage
  • Upload - to reduce storage
  • Podcast - remove third party dependency

Updating to use AV Engine will benefit all recorded content in Mediasite because of the platform-wide use of advanced bitrate control. AV Engine is being used to provide per-title encoding so each presentation is optimized for quality and storage.

Video Platform

Improved the external video workflow by showing the content owner, when possible.

Updated the Mosaic and Media Upload quality level choices in Management Portal to reflect the maximum bitrate used at the quality level. Mediasite will now preserve the source aspect ratio of the media without letter-boxing or pillar-boxing.

Vodcast

Updated the Vodcast workflow to use AV Engine. This will produce higher-quality composited files that use less storage space. Also updated the names of the Vodcast encoding settings to reflect the new naming conventions.
