SIS Live and Red Bull Media House have set a Guinness World Record for the most concurrent live web streams for last year’s broadcast from the London Eye.
In November last year, 30 of the London Eye capsules were taken over by more than 100 DJs and artists for the celebration of UK club culture, dubbed Red Bull Revolutions in Sound.
The 31 live streams of the event, which marked Red Bull Music Academy’s 15th birthday, appeared on channel4.com’s dedicated Red Bull Revolutions in Sound page, which was enabled by YouTube players.
A total of 31 streams were encoded onsite by eight servers located in a SIS vehicle and delivered via fibre for online streaming.
A 200MB pipe was used to deliver the streams in full 1080 HD format, for file upload and provision of on-site internet connectivity.
SIS Live managing director David Meynell said: “Achieving a Guinness World Record is welcome recognition of SIS Live’s unique ability to deliver live coverage from technically demanding events such as this.
“Leading the delivery of such a high-profile event and working with other parties is what SIS Live does best and we are proud to have been involved with this record-breaking programme.”
