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/
To support our client Sikorsky we’ve sent Kyle Davis on a special mission to DC … well Arlington County, Virgina to be exact… hopefully we’ll have some pics to post soon but then again — we’re not too sure what the photo policy is … in the Pentagon! Fare thee well agent Davis — and don’t forget the code word.
