ImageBEAM provided the live streaming expertise that allowed this wonderful production to be streamed to over 600,000 live viewers worldwide.

Here is a highlight video we created from the more than 5 hours of video captured on the day.

ImageBEAM’s role in this event was to handle the recording of the show and streaming it out to Nasa’s network via the Akamai CDN (Content Delivery Network).   The photo below shows Liam inside the Airstream trailer provided by the production partner working the event.
