NBC Olympics breaks streaming records with support from Microsoft Azure
NBC Sports Group and Microsoft have a near-decade-long partnership delivering mega broadcast events. When NBC Sports decided to use a cloud media platform for its coverage of the 2016 Rio Games, the company turned to Microsoft Azure as its cloud media encoding, hosting, and streaming platform. Azure provided the scale, reliability, and innovation capabilities such as multiscreen and multi-language support and 60-second turnaround for full event replays needed to meet the needs of the largest digital event in history.
