What is Recode? 

Recode, owned by Vox Media, focuses on technology and digital media news, particularly pertaining to the business of Silicon Valley. 

Live stream needs & objectives

Recode needed a professional live streaming tool to produce and broadcast the first episode of Recode Media@Home, their brand new digital talkshow. 

In the first livestream event, live on May 7th 2020, Recode senior correspondent Peter Kafka interviews SoundCloud CEO Kerry Trainor on the challenges of running a streaming audio business with hundreds of millions of users and a workforce distributed around the world. To ensure this production, it was also necessary for producers to get a global remote solution to invite guest from home and manage the whole live workflow from the cloud. missions

  • Enabling remote conversations with no specific hardware and software
  • Enabling remote and collaborative workflows for the technical team at Recode
  • Providing technical support to Recode’s team and remote guests
