"Live Webcasting: A Case Study of a Successful Large-Scale Streaming Event"
(Gates Rhodes)
With the increasing popularity of live webcasts, it is vital for webcasters and content creators to understand the intricate steps involved in producing a successful live event from start to finish. From signal acquisition through encoding to server distribution, this session details and suggests the best practices for delivering a live Internet webcast. Discover how to take a complex and rich live event and deconstruct it to its elemental parts, from hardware and software to the workflow and signal flow of the production. This session will also look at efforts to create and market to a new audience in addition to the support assistance needed to ensure their positive viewing experience. Family members and friends who were unable to attend Penn's 247th Commencement on May 19, 2003, from 9:00 a.m. 12:00 noon were able to view the ceremony live over the Internet. Our streaming traffic geographic summary for the graduation event reported over 1500 hits to the Akamai’s network of servers during the three-hour webcast. We had an additional 300 hits to an internal server that was used for on-campus viewing. After two weeks of archived storage our statistics show over 900 hits to the video-on-demand files of the Commencement ceremony.
