Yospace to live stream Mobile World Congress in March
At the 2017 GSMA Mobile World Congress, award-winning broadcast service Mobile World Live TV will again be streamed across web and mobile by Yospace. Two Mobile World Live TV channels will be streamed live: a studio channel running 24/7, featuring interviews with global industry leaders, discussion panels and news; and a keynote channel which will broadcast all the keynote sessions in the Mobile World Congress conference programme.
Yospace’s encoders will prepare the live feeds for delivery across iOS, Android and web browsers. In addition, its live-to-VoD service will capture programmes — including keynotes — as they are broadcast and automatically make them available for catch-up within minutes of ending. Pre-roll promotions can be applied to the new VoD assets using Yospace’s advanced server-side stitching platform.
“Mobile World Congress is considered the mobile industry’s ‘must-attend’ event and is also gaining importance among other major industries with connected products. It is critical that Mobile World Live, with keynotes and coverage of breaking industry news, is accessible throughout, 24/7, and in the highest possible quality,” said Trevor Skinner, Digital Director, GSMA, the organisation that hosts Mobile World Congress.
David Springall, CTO of Yospace, said: “This is the eighth year we’ve partnered with GSMA on Mobile World Live and we’re delighted to be returning for what looks set to be the busiest MWC yet. The continually increasing global level of coverage of the show demonstrates just how important the smooth running of Mobile World Live is to the event.”
Mobile World Congress will be held in Barcelona from 27 February to 2 March 2017.
