Live video is so exciting because no one knows what will happen—and just about everything will happen, over time. Expect things to break.

This was the consensus among the customers and practitioners who attended the first IBM Cloud Video Enterprise Video Idea Exchange, on February 9 in San Francisco.

The idea for the event came from a customer on the video team at a top hospitality company. The team stages frequent internal and external broadcasts, and they wanted to talk with other IBM Cloud Video customers to identify best practices for fail-proofing live-streamed events.  The top tip, not surprisingly, was to have redundancies for every component, from internet service provider to encoder.
