• OriginDigital's Darcy Lorincz - "How the Cloud Helped Us Power Over 14,000 Live Video Events Last Year" [VIDEO]

    At the recent NABShow, OriginDigital's CEO Darcy Lorincz stopped by the VideoNuze booth for an interview. Origin is now part of Accenture and as Darcy explains, remains very focused on powering live events over its network. Last year, it was responsible for 14,000 live sports, news and corporate events.

    Darcy discusses how important moving its platform to the cloud has been in enabling it to scale up to support so many events. In addition to scale, clients have benefitted from increased reach into new international markets and more cost-effective transcoding. Darcy also describes a new concept called "Virtual Linear" whereby VOD assets assembled into a linear experience for viewers, with non-skippable ads inserted in real-time. This has helped bring video libraries to life. See video below (7 minutes, 22 seconds)
