On Friday, Jan 21st, 2010, something unprecedented happened: at 11:38 AM CST, Lily the Black Bear, in Minnesota, gave birth LIVE on the internet! Thousands of people rushed to WildEarth.TV to watch this wonderful event. Peaking at a maximum of about 27,000 concurrent viewers, it was streamed across the zaplive.tv dynamic system.
Luckily for WildEarth, they were using Zaplive's highly scalable infrastructure for load balancing live streams from different locations. The infrastructure is based on Wowza Media Server and Amazon EC2.

Wowza Media Systems said 500 universities and colleges have adopted its Wowza Media Server to deliver live, on demand, and interactive content to students and faculty, much of it driven by greater demand for lecture capture. Among Wowza clients are the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia and the University of Sussex in the United Kingdom.
