WEBCAST: “Streaming the Olympics”: A case study in moving media processing to the cloud, March 4th, 11:00AM PST

There’s going to be a webcast on how the 2014 Winter Olympics were successfully streamed live worldwide over the Internet using Windows Azure, Microsoft’s cloud services platform.

imageThe live streaming of NBC’s coverage of the 2014 Olympics represented an important milestone in the automation and virtualization of the live video workflow. 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 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.
