According to PWC direct-to-consumer streaming will grow significantly increase in global revenues over the next three years. That's a growth rate of nearly 14% year-over-year types of covid-19 in shelter-in-place policies. This
transition has accelerated in the past few months according to a recent study done by Accenture video streaming is increased by over 36% since the beginning of the pendant is clear. That audiences are hungry for more content, stories that inform educate and engage during these challenging times. Today, I'll talk about the world's largest entertainment. Companies satisfy audience needs in four key areas. First, we're working to provide support robust and resilient content, production pipeline.

In this particularly uncertain time, all using Google me in short, many companies are turning to Google Cloud for a globally. Scalable infrastructure, Advanced data analytics capabilities and our growing ecosystem of opportunity to speak with Jason
gadky Chief technology officer, Major League Baseball at how Google cloud is helping to modernize America's game. Let's take a look. Hi, Jason. We are so incredibly excited. Working with Major League Baseball, thank you, for making the time to join us today. Earlier this year, as many people know, we announced a strategic partnership with MLB. Can you tell us a little bit more about how that came about what your goals were specifically, with the partnership? Sure,
when we sat down to take on this infrastructure refresh and our product refresh a mission, we had to quickly became obvious to us. That our fundamental goal is to bring the game of baseball, which is a beautiful game to are millions of fans that allows for things like personalization personalized recommendations, a sore throat, a social viewing experience, or something. Sync with other fans. These are the things that really motivate us and has been a great partner in building some products that I think. Embody those values example
on statcast. He's our baseball analytics platform where we are increasingly measuring, everything that happens on the field to extremely high degrees of fidelity. This started off about 5 years ago, as a ball tracking technology, so we can track pitches today. We can track, literally everything that happens on the field, not only pitches, and hits and throws, but also player positioning for all players on the field even coaches, and umpires, and we're moving from trapping players as a single point of mass star Center of Mass on the body of an approximation for the Slayers to skeletal
tracking, which is a real-time data feed. It really captures the, the player, poses and positions, and how player response to play on the field. Watch Richard Spencer. The game as it's being played and in this is something that is now entirely being powered by the Google Cloud. It's early on in the partnership between MLB and Google Cloud. You maybe give us some examples of projects that you have already started to work on. Truck and a couple of examples of our technology infrastructure. Team is really excited about the plumbing and posts within the 30 ball parks around
the country. What Aunt oath of office to do is provide a common control plane. For all of our compute workloads, whether we're running nose on cram at the baseball park themselves, or we have a small data centers in each facility or within the cloud Amor fan. Casing example would be a project that we internally call fastball. This is a fundamentally new approach to video with in the game. So traditionally baseball has been a one-to-many kind of publishing platform where our editors and producers cut highlights like home runs or double plays or exciting moments in the game
and there's a handful of those that then go out to the fan. What app allows us to do is cut literally every play out of every game and put those in the hands of the fans. With some powerful tools like advanced search personalized recommendations And social sharing are we think this is a new way of experiencing the game. And it's one that's really going to appeal to a younger generation of fan, seems more of a baseball operations. Workload is our baseball analytics platform. Our business analytics platform. That is we have a project in how it's called wheelhouse,
which has a large data Lake that integrates all of the interaction or fans have with the game of baseball. So this could be buying a ticket, buying a jersey streaming, a game online visiting, our website, using the mobile app. Aldi touchpoints. Tell us a little bit about how individual fans engage and enjoy the game. And I putting wheel house on bigquery. We found that we have an extremely powerful data analytics platform for running complex queries. It also integrates very well into the rest of our Workflow and cooling weather that
single sign-on using G Suite IDs or integrating Google Sheets to do ad, hoc queries and Analysis final game in the club, marketing departments, enjoy the fact that a lot of their ad management integrates natively into bigquery and the Google ad platform as well. Of course, disrupted, you know, practically every industry can you talk a little bit about how it's affected your operations and even how you were sequencing. Some of these projects are MLB teams in the Cubs team, haven't missed a beat, we use the
time is available to us to pull in some projects that we had planned for later. In the year finishing, the workload, migrations that, we have nothing of our products, helping our infrastructure, making sure that last 1% of our cases are buttoned up and ready to go, so we can provide a great Fan Experience when play resumes on the field. Jason, thank you for sharing your experience in your insights. We at Google Cloud are very excited to be playing a part in helping modernize America's pastime in working closely with MLD. We have a few more sessions
with teams from MLB throughout the rest of next on there. So be sure to tune in for those. And again, Jason, thank you very much. Thank you and I can help you with your direct-to-consumer transformation.
