Live Event Streaming in the Cloud
17 Sep 2017
M2A Media delivers a completely flexible cloud based live event streaming service. Live Streams are delivered with guaranteed availability to virtually any device type with highest quality encoding and low latency. Quality of service is also guaranteed with autoscaling origin and caching and full analytics and monitoring. M2A Media has been working with a major sports broadcaster to expand their live sports streaming capacity. Fans in Japan, Germany, Austria and Switzerland can access the world’s favorite sports on all their devices. As the sole broadcaster our client needs a Live Streaming and Catchup service that delivers events 24/7 across multiple regions and devices with high quality of service and zero tolerance for failures. Using cloud services allows us to meet these challenging needs and to make services live in record time. An orchestration service sits on top of our event scheduler and provisions transcode and caching on demand across AWS regions. At the end of the live transmission the events are available for catchup and automatically captured to VOD files for 30 day archiving. Our manifest manipulator ensures the most appropriate media is always delivered to the device.
