Microsoft Teams has built and delivered solutions to enrich virtual experience across the spectrum of communication needs, from 1:1 meetings and calls, to webinars and broadcasts. Last year we introduced NDI-Out for Teams, enabling production companies around the world to harness the power of Teams—bringing guests sitting at home directly into nationwide broadcasts like the NBA, NFL, the Voice, and more.
We know that every production is unique with its own distinct workflows and requirements, from storage to processing to streaming. As media production workflows increasingly move to the cloud, broadcasters are reaping the benefits of cloud technology, from collaborative production to agile content delivery and global distribution.
Today, we are announcing the introduction of the broadcast development kit for Teams. It’s an open-source project that enables you to flexibly integrate Teams directly into your cloud production workflows running on Microsoft Azure.
