StreamGuys brings live streaming events to St. Olaf College


StreamGuys, Inc., a streaming media and content delivery provider based in northern California, is managing enterprise-level live and on-demand video streaming for St. Olaf College of Northfield, Minnesota.  St. Olaf College, founded in 1874, is a national liberal arts college of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, with world-class programs in music and academics.  The college relies on StreamGuys to provide high-quality, enterprise-level audio and video streaming services globally for live concerts from many of the college’s music ensembles, including the world-famous St. Olaf Choir, and Sing For Joy, a weekly half-hour radio program syndicated in 200 U.S. communities plus many international countries and regions.  StreamGuys also hosts live and on-demand streams for daily chapel services, guest lectures and commencements among other events. 
Jeffrey O’Donnell, Director of Broadcast Media for St. Olaf College, is in charge of all the event recording, webcasting and streaming, and serves as executive producer of Sing For Joy.  According to O’Donnell, the college began working with StreamGuys after experiencing server capacity issues with a live concert stream that had an unusually high audience demand compared to its previous events.
