Messiah University Engages YuJa Inc. for Site-Wide Lecture Capture and Media Management Solution

SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–YuJa, Inc. announces a new engagement with Messiah University in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. The institution was seeking an enterprise media solution that provided lecture capture, media management and a variety of tools to facilitate online and hybrid programs.
