As the world’s leading video platform and community for gamers, Twitch.tv was one of the best places to find comprehensive coverage of the 2015 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3).
The live stream included announcements from the most prominent gaming companies including Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo. For a production of this caliber an unreliable Internet connection can be the Achilles heel of live streaming, especially in an environment as challenging as the colossal E3 Expo.
To reliably stream to an audience of almost 1 million viewers, Twitch chose to depend on Teradek’s Bond II, a popular choice for companies with sizeable video streaming efforts.
Bond II aggregates the bandwidth from multiple hardline and cellular data connections to ensure a live stream never goes down. Justin Ignacio, Twitch’s Broadcast Success Engineer, explains the importance of the Bond II’s role for this production, “The Teradek Bond solution is fantastic for us because of the amount of redundancy it provides with sending video over the Internet… Especially for big events like E3, the Teradek Bond is absolutely necessary.”
