From the 31st May until the 2nd June, the International Transport Forum (ITF) hosted its annual summit in Leipzig Germany. The summit acts as a platform for the discussion of current issues within the transport sector and how to help shape international policy between the 57 member states of the ITF.
Having won the tender to provide live webcasting of the 15 sessions, StreamAMG partnered with SixThree Communications to deliver the webcasts. We supplied both the production and streaming capabilities over the course of the three days.
The ITF were keen to increase viewing figures from the previous years, thus StreamAMG suggested that the broadcasts were also pushed to Twitter through Periscope, for 10 of the sessions. Using our award winning Stream Media Platform (StreamMP), the live stream was syndicated to both Twitter and YouTube.
One of the main requirements for the webcasts was the need for the player to rapidly change language on the fly, depending on the requirements of the viewer. For the sessions there would be two options, floor language and English. StreamAMG’s players allowed for audiences to view the webcasts in their preferred language at the click of a button.
After the proceedings were over, the video content was made on-demand immediately so that the public could easily access content in case they missed it, or wanted to re-visit certain sections. The videos were hosted through our StreamMP and then embedded directly onto the ITF website.
