December 7, 2015—MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA. and Dominican Republic—BlueJeans Network, a global leader in cloud-based video conferencing services, scored a homerun on December 4, connecting baseball great David Ortiz with fans and media via a live streaming, interactive video event.
Blue Jeans' video event service Primetime and Derek Jeter's media platform, The Players' Tribune, enabled the Red Sox' nine-time All Star and three-time World Series champion to share details of his retirement from Major League Baseball. Nearly 1,000 fans tuned in and had the unique opportunity to ask David questions face-to-face as he shared his post-retirement plans and reminisced about his exceptional 20-year baseball career.
Debuting in 2014, Blue Jeans Primetime is the first fully interactive, large-scale video events service blending together two-way video conferencing with large scale broadcasting capabilities, and marks an industry first in video promotion and engagement. Blue Jeans Primetime provides the video backbone for The Players' Tribune allowing athletes to engage with fans online and face-to-face from anywhere for story telling, discussion groups, or Q&A sessions.
