Abstract

Since the development of the first live audio and video services in the 90s, the deployment of these services has always been a challenging issue. Not only is it necessary to deal with the problems of the delivery of continuous information and the high consumption of resources, but also with those imposed by the nature of these services. Service managers do not get a second chance to broadcast live contents so it is important to ensure that everything works as planned. Most service managers only work based on their own experience, but they rarely follow any standardized method. With the aim of improving the current situation, the authors have designed a methodology for the deployment of live audio and video which is presented in this paper. The methodology tries to cover almost all the issues that may arise while putting one of these services into operation and proposes mechanisms to deal with those issues from a management perspective. It has been successfully used by the authors in the deployment of several live services for different companies.
