Twitch To Keynote Streaming Media East Show: Learn How They Broadcast Live To Millions

Twitch_Logo_ 6441a5I am pleased to announce that Matthew Szatmary, Senior Video Encoding Engineer at Twitch will kick off the Streaming Media East show, on Tuesday May 13th in NYC. Launched in 2011, Twitch is the world’s leading video platform and community for gamers where more than 45 million gamers gather every month to broadcast live video, watch and chat about gaming. In February 2014, the Wall Street Journal ranked Twitch as the 4th largest website in terms of peak internet traffic in the U.S. fortifying the brand as an entertainment industry leader and the epicenter of social video for gamers.

Live streams of video gaming championships are one of the fastest growing segments of the industry. Last year, the League of Legends Season 3 World Championship broadcast peaked at 8.5M simultaneous streams. Twitch, which is now on the Xbox One and PS4 has 1M people streaming live footage each month and some of the most popular gamers are doing 137,000 simultaneous streams just from their single account.

Come hear how Twitch is developing next generation encoding services and playback technologies to serve live video to one of the Internet’s largest audiences. Register online for an exhibits pass using the code DR100 and you’ll have FREE access to the keynotes.
