Olympics


For the Vancouver, London and Sochi Olympic Games, Southworks contributed several projects.

Asset Replicator: This tool allows you to replicate WAMS assets across two Media Services accounts. In the most common scenarios this capability is used to mirror a library of streaming assets across accounts in two different Azure data centers to enable geo-diverse redundancy. During London 2012 Olympics, this tool was used by multiple broadcasters to guarantee on-demand video streaming redundancy.

Live Monitoring Dashboard: Web sites and services to manage and monitor WAMS and cloud services to geo-replicate WAMS assets for redundancy. These tooling were used for the Olympic Games’ live events broadcasting.

Rough Cut Editor: NBC used it alongside a live stream of the games to create event highlights, so that people just joining the coverage could get up to speed quickly.
