When all of Texas came together to create a benefit concert for those that were devastated by Hurricane
Harvey, Zodiac Studios was brought in by the producers to work directly with YouTube to encode and
stream the television broadcast. We worked directly with the television producers and their satellite truck to encode and live stream their LIVE broadcast feed to YouTube. We provided primary and backup
encoders. This broadcast we seen all over the world and shared via YouTube by all major and local news
outlets. Zodiac Studios donated our services as a way to give back.
