3D Livestream of the BOSS Black Fashion Show in Beijing

That was not the question. The first ever 3D production of a fashion show was streamed live in 3D as well as 2D, for mobile and deskop devices, for China and the rest of the world. From low-bitrate to HD quality, a total of 48 live streams was sent to two CDNs (Akamai and ChinaCache) and played out via Brightcove players. That’s what we call multiscreen delivery!

70,000 viewers around the world turned into a well-connected and flawless live stream.

A small sensation nonetheless, since the production took place across three continents and four time zones: From the 3D OB van located in China, the signal was transmitted to Germany via 2 satellites, where trailers and slates were mixed in and encoding took place.
