The 360° Event enables viewers to access webcast events from any PC, BlackBerry smart phone, iPhone/iPad or Android device. When users click on the event URL, they are automatically re-directed to the webpage appropriate for their given device.
The pilot project for this service was conducted on March 30th 2011 for The Strategic Coach, where we assisted their events team to expand the reach of their live seminar by way of video webcast. Their target audience is made up of people who are consistently on the go, hence why the requirement for mobile streaming was key, as this ensured that they were able to reach as much of their potential audience as possible. One of the main objectives for this event was to generate leads, so event reporting was pivotal. To accommodate this, SN developed the 360° reporting tool, which enabled them to track all mobile registrations and views to the same effect as those who registered and/or viewed from their PC.

In February 2011, The Streaming Network was selected by BodyBuilding.com to broadcast the Arnold Classic and Mr. Olympia fitness competitions. Up first, in March 2011, was The Arnold Classic, which was a great success, reaching over 26 countries and over 100,000 viewers in two days! Keeping in line with our focus to always be pushing the streaming envelope, we implemented a live transcoding solution. This allowed us to stream live in 10 different formats/bitrates to the web, BlackBerry, iPhones/iPads and Android Devices, and also included a near HD stream to the web! Check out BodyBuilding.com for updates on the Mr. Olympia broadcast scheduled for September 2011!
In October 2010, The Streaming Network was selected to Webcast the WEST 49 Take the Cake Skateboard Contest live from the Niagara Parkway. Facilitating a webcast from a park was made even more difficult by the fact that there was an appetite to do both a web and mobile broadcast. We were able to secure IP in advance of the event and successfully broadcasted the event to more than 10,000 skateboarding fans across 3 countries and to over 200 mobile users on BlackBerry, iPhone and Android Devices.
