Akamai brings together GamesBeat, Ubisoft and Gen.G to talk about how to monetise esports. Gen.G runs esports teams, Ubisoft makes games, GamesBeat reviews games and Akamai delivers esports streaming. So together they have a pretty good idea of the industry!
Questions covered are:
What are the current esports revenue models?
Where is the bulk of revenue coming from today?
What lessons can be learned from traditional sports models?
How does Monetisation differ between East and West?

For many content providers and rights-holders, live streaming represents an exciting opportunity to connect directly with their target audiences plus drive new revenue streams.
This webinar discusses topics including the pros and cons of live streaming as compared with broadcasting, how to measure quality of experience and reliability, which business models are being used, current best practices, ongoing challenges, critical initiatives, and much more.
Join Alec Hendry, Senior Director of Technology Convergence for Viacom, Will Richmond, Editor and Publisher at VideoNuze, and Henrik Eriksson, Service Line Manager at Akamai, for a roundtable discussion covering:
The state of live streaming today
How to measure quality in live streaming and ensure a positive user experience
Successful business models for live streaming
Best practices associated with live streaming
Senior Director of Technology Convergence,
As security continues to be forefront in broadcasters’ minds, Akamai continues to monitor internet security threats. Herem they tell you what to expect in the year to come as they review the biggest events and best research from Akamai’s 2018 State of the Internet / Security: A Year in Review report.
Why low-and-slow, high-leverage application-level attacks can be just as damaging as high-bandwidth attacks
How specialisation among adversaries is driving marketisation and economies of scale in the hostile ecosystem of malicious actors
What the biggest attacks of the previous year, like memcached and the Mirai botnet, indicate about the evolution of reflection and
botnet attack vectors
What our researchers have uncovered over the past year about the dark side of APIs, emerging and popular adversarial tools, new vulnerabilities, and more
What security trends we can expect in 2019 and how attacks and threats will evolve in the year ahead
Nobody wants to find out about a big play or major news event on Twitter before they see it in their video stream, so reducing latency is crucial for OTT services’ success. Likewise, ultra-low latency is crucial for interactive streaming applications. Depending on your use case, a few seconds of latency might be fine, or you might need to try to hit that sub-second target.
Learn which technologies and solutions are best for your business, and make sure your viewers get their video on time, every time. In this webinar, you’ll learn the following:
Why it’s important to evaluate and improve latency end-to-end, including software and services, encoder, platform, and player
How to decide which technology and solution is best for your use case (e.g. CMAF, HLS/DASH, WebRTC, Websocket)
How chunked CMAF offers a standards-based approach that allows latency to be decoupled from segment duration
How chunked CMAF leverages existing CDN HTTP capacity to provide low-latency solutions at high scale
How WebRTC can be used to deliver live video sub-second latency at scale, and provide rich, interactive experiences for live streaming applications
How a single misconfigured component can undo any other effort to achieve low latency
How integrated solutions create new business opportunities for low latency interactive use cases
How to achieve low latency across all platforms and devices

OTT is just TV—or at least it should be. Viewers are looking to OTT services not simply as an add-on to broadcast or cable, but as a replacement. Akamai, Bitmovin and EZDRM join forces in this Streaming Media webinar to shed light on how to make your OTT service as reliable, robust, and feature-rich as broadcast or cable, as well as how to add features and functionality that the previous generation of TV simply can’t match.
Will Law from Akamai proves his chunky credentials by telling us how to achive very low-latency streaming in his talk at Demuxed 2018.
In the jungle of solutions for low latency live streaming, there are many current options ranging from WebRTC, to proprietary UDP protocols to standard segmented media with ever-shortening segments. This session highlights one of these – chunked-encoded chunked-transferred CMAF – as a optimal and practical confluence of both reach and performance. On the technical side we’ll investigate the underlying technology, the latency regimes possible, compatibility with legacy players, cachability on delivery networks and player behavior requirements. Including live demonstrations of several streams on a production network. This talks brings a standards perspective from DVB and DASH as well as CDN support. As a sweetener, Will points you at open source code on both the encoder and player side for doing this all yourself.

Data-driven insights can empower decision makers to enable a better online viewing experience for their audience, optimize their business, and create a competitive advantage in the industry. When it comes to online streaming, there are key metrics you should review to ensure audience engagement and provide high-quality experiences.
This webinar will provide insight into how you can leverage data, addressing the following topics:
How webcasting quality of experience (QoE) and quality of service (QoS) dashboards can provide the most critical information needed to troubleshoot live presentations in real time
How video publishers can use data and analytics in managing and improving their service
How QoE and QoS impact your audience and bottom line
How to drill down to the individual user level to gain 360-degree insight into viewer experience
What metrics and data points are the most important for video publishers and OTT services
How can QoE analytics be used to design streaming infrastructure and improve streaming performance.

Consumers demand access to their favorite content anytime and anywhere. That includes access to on-demand and live feeds. VoD delivery itself is not considered a differentiator anymore as consumers want a better holistic experience and access to live feeds via OTT platforms. The process of managing live OTT video workflows capable of delivering at scale and with no disruption or errors requires a new approach.
This webinar will explore how technology innovations can support live OTT content distribution at scale while creating new monetization opportunities. We will discuss how to meet additional consumer requirements through further engagement techniques via cloud-based solutions, as offering a live TV service is ultimately not just about streaming; it is about creating an end-to-end holistic experience.
Key Topics for Discussion
Key trends driving the shift in live consumption
Live TV as a holistic experience
Speed and reliability as paramount metric to create that experience
Monitoring and analytics as an enabler for quality improvement
