On Tuesday, October 11, 2016 Streambox powered the official livestream of The IMMERSE Technology Summit from Bellevue, Washington to YouTube and separate sessions and interviews to Facebook. Using Streambox Avenir Micro with an Embedded Module Module and Streambox Cloud, Streambox captured conference sessions, the expo, and interviews by CNDY Factory, in full HD and 360.
The IMMERSE Technology Summit is the Northwest’s premier event for VR/AR and Mixed Reality business leaders, developers, content creators, software architects, hardware engineers and researchers. This year 1,000 attendees in manufacturing, design, education, health and medicine, architecture, real estate, social experiences, tourism, entertainment and beyond connected over the latest VR technologies and Streambox livestreamed it.
Streambox powered three separate camera feeds, all going to Facebook and YouTube. One stream was from a fixed camera capturing the sessions in HD. The second stream was also a fixed HD stream for CNDY Factory’s interviews. The third was a 360 feed roaming around the expo hall where viewers could be truly immersed in the summit experience.
For each feed Streambox used an Avenir Micro with Embedded Modem Module outfitted with Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint SIM cards. The Avenir Micro compressed the video using the priority ACT-L3 codec and bonded the cellular carriers for delivery to Streambox Cloud for transcoding and live adaptive multi-bitrate playout to Facebook and YouTube.
The three streams looked great and allowed many people on Facebook to experience the summit. All in all it was a success on every level.
