Webinar: What to See at NAB

Date: Friday, March 29th 2019
Time: 11am PT / 2pm ET / 18:00 GMT

NAB is coming around again and the betting has started on what the show will bring. Whilst we can look to last year for hints, here editors from Streaming Media come together to discuss the current trends in the industry and how they will be represented at NAB.

Some highlights of the conversation will be:

  • What HEVC solutions people are showing – the ongoing codec wars are captivating to most people as AV1 tries – and gradually succeeds – to break its ‘too slow’ label, whilst HEVC continues to grow acceptance with its ‘ready to deploy’ label despite the fees.
  • UHD production and delivery – We know that production houses prefer to capture higher resolution as it increases the value of their content and gives them more options in editing. But how far is UHD developing further down the chain. Is it just for live sports?
  • Live Streaming – SRT is bound to keep making waves at NAB has Haivision plans its biggest event yet discussing the many ways it’s being used. SRT delivers encrypted, reliable streams – while there are competitors, SRT continues to grow apace.
  • NDI – This compressed but ultra low latency codec continues to impress for live production workflows – particularly live events, though it’s not clear how much – if at all – it will make its way into top-tier broadcasters.

Much more will be on the cards, so register now for this session on Friday March 29th.

Webinar: Latency Still Sucks – So What Can You Do About It Today?

Date: Thursday 6th December, 2018. 11AM PT / 2PM ET / 19:00 GMT

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

Webinar: End-to-End Workflow


Thursday, October 18th, 2018. 11am PT / 2pm ET / 19:00 BST

End-to-end workflows take the guesswork out of processing, managing, and delivering content to viewers. This web event will discuss the pros and cons of end-to-end workflow solutions and give you insights into what to look for when making an investment in your company’s future.

In this event, you’ll learn the following:
• How implementing an end-to-end publishing strategy can optimize video workflows
• What considerations your systems require to remain agile in a dynamic market
• How to execute a “production to distribution” streamed content strategy with a quality viewing experience
• How next-generation hybrid architectures, from production to distribution, can be automated and customized
• How to keep content secure as it moves through global, digital workflows that involve both automation and people
• The pros and cons of off-the-shelf tools, best-of-breed solutions, and custom solutions
• How to reduce management costs by treating infrastructure as code and using devops best practices
• Best practices for delivering video to multiple media devices everywhere

Webinar: The Video APIs & SDK Revolution


Date: Thursday August 23rd 2018, 11am PT / 2pm ET / 19:00 BST

Streaming Media are back with Bitmovin and MUX to talk about APIs.
After all, more APIs and SDKs than ever are available to developers, and they’re getting smarter—allowing businesses to advance their video development at a more rapid pace. APIs simplify everything from payment processing to content management, and SDKs allow for heretofore unheard-of customization for everything from formats and delivery protocols to player controls and features.

Learn how to leverage APIs and SDKs to grow your video business fast, as they dive into these issues:

  • How developers can use APIs and SDKs to build highly customized video streaming platforms, instead of relying on out-of-the-box OVPs
  • The implications and challenges of the APIs & SDK revolution for enterprise engineering teams
  • Best practices for relying on third-party APIs: testing, monitoring, etc.
  • What developers need to know about the video infrastructure layer
  • How to decide which video API fits your needs
  • What resources exist to help broadcast engineers, as well as “traditional” software engineers, advance their video development skills.
