B201: Case Study: Producing the First Live 4K Stream From Space

Track B – Friday 3 November 
10:30 – 11:15

In this presentation, attendees will learn how NASA and Amazon Web Services engineered a complete, resilient, and repeatable workflow that brought this industry-first event to viewers everywhere using scalable cloud and software enabled workflows. Among the many insights that will be shared: live 4K transcoding in the cloud; the role compression efficiency plays in on-going deep space discovery; overcoming bandwidth constraints on the ISS and on Earth; the implication of cloud-enabled live 4K video streaming for public sector applications in defense, security, first responders, law enforcement, energy and other segments; even how to get an encoder into orbit.
