Telestream helps 2007 Special Olympics to the Web

Chinese and U.S. students united to bring event webcasts to millions of viewers around the world.

Telestream’s FlipFactory and Flip4Mac video compression products helped bring the 2007 Special Olympic World Games to Internet viewers worldwide. The Special Olympics Games were broadcast from Shanghai, China, in October and are available on the official Web site at

The Web project brought together more than 300 U.S. and Chinese university students who worked around the clock for 10 days to capture more than 1500 hours of competition, which were processed and edited into more than 7000 video clips. As encoding continues, organizers expect to compile as many as 10,000 video clips of all the athletes by the end of December.
