Yesterday, Vbrick and Cisco teamed up to stream a press conference unifying planetary experts in Berlin, Bucharest, Luxembourg, Silicon Valley and London gathering for “Asteroid Day” a UN-sanctioned global day of education to raise awareness about asteroids and how to protect Earth from dangerous impacts.
Experts used Cisco Telepresence Centers to join the press conference. Adding to the excitement – and the sheer global scope – of the event was a pristine live stream from the event made possible by Vbrick Rev as a seamless component of the Cisco video infrastructure.
Cisco offers Rev as its streaming and recording solution. The Asteroid Day live webcast was a prestigious and globally relevant example of what the technologies make possible.
The addition of Rev streaming to the video conferencing event enabled literally anyone concerned with this issue to experience the press conference live – from any mobile or other connected device – through a web browser.
Event organizers were elated with the results, saying that Vbrick Rev helps their cause, which is to “save the world and engage generations of space explorers.”
