Portfolio: Edinburgh's Hogmanay

We webcast Edinburghs Hogmanay

Edinbughs Hogmanay features one of the largest street parties in the world. With 26 cameras, several stages and international bands it was also very technically complex.

We webcast the party live to 25,000 viewers worldwide, utilising 3 seperate networks for scalabililty and redundancy. A custom load balancing application was also built to distribute viewers in real time.

Our brief, (as is often the case where people have had bad experiences with web casts), was to make it work.

This we did, and it was an unforgettable experience.
