Getting plenty of positive feedback and nice experience from the past cooperation, Microsoft Hong Kong continuously partnered with TFI to live stream the Tech Forum – Azure Fundamentals to the public on 2 May 2017.
To deliver a premium interactive live forum, Microsoft strongly required a reliable and trustable vendor to provide live streaming service for seamless real time communication between the online audience and speakers. The key is to find a vendor who has the capability to offer a broadcast quality and steady live stream.

At the end of the forum, there was a Q&A session. Speakers could get comments and responses immediately from the live feed. It effectively facilitated the interaction between the speakers and the audiences.
Headquartered in Redmond, Washington, Microsoft was founded by Paul Allen and Bill Gates on April 4, 1975, to develop and sell BASIC interpreters for Altair 8800. It rose to dominate the personal computer operating system market with MS-DOS in the mid-1980s, followed by Microsoft Windows. The company also produces a wide range of other software for desktops and servers, and is active in areas including Internet search (with Bing), the video game industry (with the Xbox, Xbox 360 and Xbox One consoles), the digital services market (through MSN), and mobile phones.
