Origin Digital On Board for Record-Breaking Free-Fall Attempt

When you think of cutting edge, nothing is more extreme than a 120,000 foot supersonic free fall from a stratospheric balloon in an attempt to break free-fall records — including the speed of sound — that have stood for over 50 years.

Red Bull Stratos, a mission to the edge of space, will attempt to shatter a record that has existed for 50 years, while providing valuable medical and scientific research data. Supported by a team of experts, professional skydiver Felix Baumgartner will make a free fall jump from a stratospheric balloon, descending at supersonic speeds before parachuting to the ground.

This landmark jump is scheduled for today, weather permitting, and Origin Digital is on board, exclusively enabling the mission live on-line with its Live Events Automation Platform (LEAP), distributing to digital connected devices around the globe for Red Bull Media House.

Origin Digital enabled over 15,000 live events in the last year, many of them sporting events, as well as a variety of 24/7 channels from around the globe.
