Adobe’s Project Primetime Powers BBC’s Coverage of the Olympics
Adobe’s Kevin Towes announced that components of Adobe’s Project Primetime power the BBC Olympics.
Several Adobe technologies are being used to power BBC’s coverage of the Olympics. Adobe Media Server prepares the content in using both the HTTP Dynamic Streaming (HDS) format and the HTTP Live Streaming format (HLS) to stream live and on demand video across desktops, connected TVs and iOS devices. Adobe Media Server is also used as a video origin to feed video across content delivery networks to meet capacity requirements. [via Digital Media blog]
It also include an updated OSMF version, and Primetime Highlights.
Primetime Highlights can ingest pre-encoded video streams and quickly re-assemble them into clips with full adaptive bitrate support and made available to the audience quickly. [via Digital Media blog]
