SIS Live Sets World Record

News Image
SIS LIVE and Red Bull Media House have set a Guinness World Record for the 'most concurrent live web streams for an event' in a live music broadcast from the EDF Energy London Eye.

SIS LIVE worked with Red Bull Media House to deliver the project to mark Red Bull Music Academy’s 15th birthday, broadcasting 31 concurrent live streams to more than a million viewers all over the world.
The 'Red Bull Revolutions in Sound' event in November has now been independently verified by Guinness World Records and confirmed as a record.
A spokesman for Guinness World Records said: "Each Guinness World Records title has its own unique set of rules and guidelines that must be adhered to for a record to be successfully accomplished.
"The most concurrent live web streams for an event is 31 and was achieved by Red Bull Media House and SIS LIVE (both UK) at the 'Red Bull Revolutions in Sound' event at the London Eye in London, UK, on 14 November 2013."
To set the record, all but two of the 32 moving capsules of the EDF Energy London Eye were taken over by more than 100 DJs and artists for a celebration of UK club culture dubbed Red Bull Revolutions in Sound. Every capsule saw one club night come alive with resident DJs and superstar guests, including Fac51, The Haçienda, Fabric and Blitz Club, along with artists such as Lily Allen, Rudimental and Katy B.
31 streams were encoded onsite by eight servers located in a SIS LIVE vehicle and delivered via fibre for online streaming. A 200MB pipe was used to deliver the streams in full 1080 HD format, for file upload and provision of on-site internet connectivity.
David Meynell, Managing Director, SIS LIVE, said: "Achieving a Guinness World Record is welcome recognition of SIS LIVE’s unique ability to deliver live coverage from technically demanding events such as this. Leading the delivery of such a high-profile event and working with other parties is what SIS LIVE does best and we are proud to have been involved with this record-breaking programme."
