I am planning on broadcasting the Serie Del Caribe live in Spanish and English here. We plan to be twittering status from Mexicali to be notified of game highlights and then attempting to cut and post these in real time before the end of the following inning. This should be a fun challenge. I set up 24 highlights players for the 12 games in Spanish and English that will have these highlights. The goal is to drive traffic back to the live and full-length archive streams that are pay-per-view.
I remember working on the MLB project at Virage where we were clipping games but could not post the clips until the game was over because we had to wait for the encoder to finish the session. This time I am using two VBrick appliances per stream. One to encode and archive the premium video in 3 bitrates and another to just grab highlight clip files. This second brick will automatically push clips as we grab them up to our publishing server. It will be interesting to see how well this works.
