The Hardwell live stream event will be made possible by VBR, LeaseWeb and Littlstar. VBR, a virtual reality broadcasting company based in Amsterdam and part of Scopic, is providing a “state-of-the-art” 360-camera, equipped with two fish-eye lenses that can stitch footage on the spot delivering a UHD stream. This allows people from all over the world to virtually attend Hardwell’s show; a “first at any electronic dance music event so far.”
LeaseWeb is providing the CDN for the live stream. LeaseWeb’s proprietary content delivery network (CDN) and globally-distributed data centers would minimize latency and buffering, while dynamic traffic bursting and adaptive bitrate streaming would guarantee the best possible viewer experience. Hardwell’s live stream performance will be the first live stream event on Littlstar.
