If you tuned in for Apple’s majorly hyped live stream of its iPhone 6/Apple Watch event yesterday, you in all probability observed a number of hiccups alongside the best way: music enjoying from the Flint Center whereas one other music streamed over the video, a translator talking over a lot of the presentation, and the video simply plain failing a number of occasions alongside the best way. Dan Rayburn at StreamingMediaBlog.com shares his perception of what brought on Apple’s main announcement video stream to botch itself all through the present. According to Rayburn, it’s surprisingly not because of the variety of viewers:
Shortly earlier than the occasion kicked off, many viewers have been hit with the “TV Truck Schedule” picture as an alternative of Apple CEO Tim Cook welcoming the viewers and leaping proper into the brand new iPhone S/iPhone S Plus information. Refreshing was both met with an ‘entry denied’ web page, a frozen stream, or the now well-known truck schedule photograph. For me, this was the conduct throughout three totally different screens, and others just like the breakfast restaurant chain Denny’s Diner took note too.

Notably, Apple did accompany its live stream footage with a blog updated in real time with advertising info, product particulars, and tweets from celebrities and reporters, which helped fill in for the botched stream. At any price, if the stream’s wonky conduct did come right down to improper planning on the entrance finish of the occasion with caching points and S3 storage configuration, that hopefully means we gained’t see an identical episode sooner or later.
