Home Industry Strategy First-time live streaming by CeBit

All keynote conference sessions at CeBIT are to be live streamed this year for the first time as part of the show’s new format.

This will be the first year CeBIT Australia has broadcast any of its sessions to an audience beyond the event location using Viocorp’s Viostream adaptive bitrate streaming to ensure a great user experience regardless of network connectivity or device.

CeBiT will be staged between 2 and 4 May at Sydney Olympic Park.

“This year’s event is all about shaping the business technology landscape and live streaming goes hand in hand with that notion,” said Harvey Stockbridge, Managing Director at Hannover Fairs Australia.

“Technology and business leaders have come to expect consumer-grade capabilities of streaming video through their experiences with YouTube and Netflix - simple, easy-to-access and a seamless viewing experience whether they’re in a boardroom or the back of a taxi.

“Last year we achieved enormous reach, over 6 million, via the event’s social media channels. This year, with the incorporation of our non-geotargeted (meaning anyone, anywhere with an internet connection can view this footage) live streaming capabilities, we expect to blow this number out of the water.

“Our live streaming partner – Viocorp – has a solid track record in matching business technology requirements to the consumer-grade live-streaming experience, which will only enhance our ability to connect CeBIT’s keynote speakers to a much broader audience – not just across Australia, but across the globe – in real time!”
