Webinar: iStreamPlanet Breaks Down Streaming the Olympics
With the Sochi Olympics no in the rearview mirror, iStreamPlanet is hosting a free webinar to breakdown the workflow that went into distributing the Games via online and digital platforms.The webinar, called Streaming the Olympics: A Case Study in Moving Media Processing to the Cloud will take place on Tuesday, March 4 at 2 p.m. ET.
The live streaming of NBC’s coverage of the 2014 Olympics represented an important milestone in the automation and virtualization of the live video workflow for large scale events. The cloud-based solution created by Microsoft, iStreamPlanet, Adobe, and NBC powered 41 live streaming channels running continuously for 18 days, ultimately delivering over 3000 hours of high definition, adaptive bitrate, multi format live content to a broad spectrum of devices on the iOS, Android and Windows platforms.
Join Microsoft and iStreamPlanet for a live, in depth discussion of the 2014 Olympics live video workflow and the advantages of moving media processing to the cloud. In this session you will learn how the solution was implemented with Windows Azure Media Services, and iStreamPlanet’s Aventus live video workflow service to help NBC expand their digital audience while simultaneously reducing the cost and complexity involved in delivering a first rate viewing experience to all connected devices.
