Join Microsoft, Adobe, Highwinds, and Conviva for a free Master Class webcast on Live Webcasting. Going beyond production values and product descriptions, this session gets into the "how-to" of delivering cost-effective high quality live events with streaming media. The live webcast will be on March 17th, 2011, at 11:00 AM Pacific Time; the on-demand version of the event will be available starting March 18th.
Each presenter in this roundtable web event brings deep live webcasting knowledge from various perspectives. Jason Suess (pictured at right), a Principal Technical Evangelist at Microsoft, will provide insights into how we delivered the Microsoft Professional Developers Conference 2010 (PDC10) to an on-line audience in more than 150 countries. Over 500,000 hours of video was streamed to 100,000 developers during the two-day event, and many more have watched the archived on-demand content since then.
Watch the webcast to learn more about the PDC10 interactive media player experience, streaming architecture, measures implemented to assure high quality, cost containment, and the partners we worked with. In case you are interested, the Microsoft technologies used included Windows Azure, IIS Smooth Streaming, the Silverlight Media Framework, Expression Encoder, SharePoint, the Silverlight Rough Cut Editor, and a new lightweight Content Management System for Smooth Streaming that was built on SharePoint.
