OTT - the tech bit ...

24 January 2018

If - like other content publishers and broadcasters - you are betting big on OTT, then doing it better than anyone else is your sure way of winning the audience. Streaming Forum’s one-day briefing (27 February, London ExCeL) points the way to smarter decisions about technology as well as business, making sure that your OTT service outsmarts broadcast and cable every step of the way. 

Get behind the tech that will help you achieve that. Here are just a few of the tech sessions lined up for Streaming Forum:

Keynote: Streaming in the Land of Containers - As one of Europe’s leading pay TV operators, Sky customers know that when it has the Sky name on it, they can expect to receive a premium streaming experience with the best sports, entertainment and movies content. So, what does it really mean to operate an OTT live streaming platform at scale for millions of customers every day? Sky’s Principal Streaming Architect, Jeff Webb, walks us through Sky’s move towards containerised micro services architecture for its live streaming platform, the benefits this brings, and the challenges it presents.

Emerging Trends in Codecs, Formats, and Delivery Protocols - While watching OTT video has never been easier, encoding and delivering it has never been more complex. HEVC, VP9, AV1, HLS, MPEG-DASH, SRT and more; expert technologists from YouTube, Streaming Video Alliance, Wowza and bitmovin help you make sense of codecs, formats, and protocols - and what this all means for workflow efficiency, video quality and low latency, both today and in the future.

Building an HTML5 Video Workflow: CMAF & other key components you need to know - Take an up-close look at the HTML5 video workflow and the latest news in standards, adoption, trends and more. Understand the major components necessary to build a video delivery workflow, with a focus on format, encoding, player, DRM and advertising. Take home a better understanding of what to look for when building a video delivery workflow, the current state of the relevant technologies and standards, and the options available to you.

Building Intelligent Media Platforms with Amazon AI - Amazon Web Services has been investing in artificial intelligence for over 20 years, and seen increased interest from customers to go deeper in AI and machine learning, with many of the capabilities customers experience driven by machine learning. Take a look at how Amazon AI and Deep Learning services can be applied to media workflows like metadata enrichment, image classification, live and VOD media processing, sentiment analysis, facial recognition, and content moderation.
