WestJet Xmas Miracle wins Bronze Cyber Lion at Cannes Lions!

We are thrilled to have just heard that the WestJet Xmas Miracle has won a bronze Cyber Lion at Cannes Lions! An idea conceived by Studio M and WestJet needed a little extra umph on the tech side requiring a way to scan airline ticket barcodes, and pipe 1080p video through custom software between Toronto, Hamilton and Calgary. Using a selection of open source software such as WebRTC and OpenFrameworks we were able to achieve the performance we needed to this high availability experience. More info on the tech behind the project is here in our WestJet case study: http://www.globacore.com/case-studies/westjet/
