SVG On Demand: Enhancing Esports Media Workflows With Flexible IP Delivery
PCCW Global’s Console Connect platform for live production helps event organizers throughout the industry. The software-defined platform enables on-demand, flexible, private interconnections to the cloud, media platforms, datacenters, and distribution hubs. During an event, it can provide secure, cost-effective IP delivery circuits, whether to enhance the media workflow or for delivery of the final cut. The focus of this case study is a recent esports event in Hong Kong, where Console Connect provided flexible, instant bandwidth from the stadium location to both the gaming servers and AWS for live streaming. For the Friday-Sunday event, bandwidth was provided via web portal starting on Thursday morning with turndown Monday night, with no-long term contracts.
This case study was presented at the 2018 SVG TranSPORT conference on Oct. 16 at NYC’s Microsoft Technology Center by Jay Turner, PCCW Global, VP, Development and Operations.
