Limelight, Streaming Video Alliance and Videonet come together to discuss the introduction of WebRTC’s sub-second latency for live streaming which is opening the way for a ‘better-than-broadcast’ experience – enabling new ways to engage viewers and monetise them.
WebRTC provides real-time video delivery and can now be implemented in a CDN environment for large-scale distribution and has extremely low latency.
This webinar covers:
Making WebRTC part of your workflow
Compression, DRM & ad insertion
Innovation opportunities for broadcasters and challenger OTT providers
Special focus on increasing viewer engagement
creating new revenue streams.
New business partnerships
Optimisation for multiscreen television & connected TV devices
The Streaming Video Alliance are back with a packed panel of experts discussing the move from broadcast channels to the cloud.
The real transition from traditional TV broadcast to online video is happening behind the scenes as incumbents and new providers embrace cloud resources to provide a scalable, distributed means to reach the widest possible audience. But the cloud is complicated. With a myriad of providers and a bevy of services available, providers need to understand both how the cloud can help streaming video workflows as well as the challenges involved with implementation and integration. In this panel, you’ll hear experts discuss a variety of challenges with cloud-based workflows, the growing importance of edge computing, and best practices for adopting cloud technologies in video delivery.

Continuing the Streaming Video Alliance’s great webinar series, Jason Thibeault is back to discuss the consumer demand to download video and how to implement it. Joining Jason to share his experience and opinions is Joshua Pressnell, CTO of Penthera.
One thing is clear about consumer behavior when it comes to watching video-on-demand: people want to watch it whenever and wherever they want. Unfortunately, especially as more consumers gravitate towards mobile devices on inconsistent Wi-Fi and cellular networks, achieving a high-quality experience is fraught with difficulties. Enter download-to-go. This functionality, pioneered by Netflix and Amazon, allows consumers to download content to their phones for off-line viewing, ensuring the highest quality viewing experience without having to worry about spotty network coverage. But how do you implement this solution? Is there a way this solution can be applied to connected storage in the home?
In this discussion, you’ll learn about the intricacies involved in implementing download-to-go functionality, how the feature is evolving to potentially make use of in-home storage, and many of the challenges associated with providing this kind of service to subscribers.
Joshua Pressnell joined Penthera after a long career as a military contractor developing integrated sensor systems and standards. Pressnell brought extensive experience in embedded systems, signals intelligence, sensor data fusion, and real-time software to the mobile software development industry, and quickly built a stellar reputation as an independent developer of top-ranked and top-grossing iOS mobile apps. Pressnell joined Penthera in 2011 as the iOS Team Lead, eventually taking on the role of Director of Engineering, and now Chief Technical Officer.

The Alliance is currently focused on identifying issues and solutions related to open architecture, quality of experience and interoperability.
The Streaming Video Alliance is back with the next in their webinar series and the focus turns to churn.
Viewer churn is the OTT killer. But keeping subscribers engaged and coming back to a service involves more than just great content. It requires a keen eye on the data—from ensuring a great Quality of Experience (QoE) to making smart marketing decisions about content to providing excellent customer service, data is key.
What should you be measuring?
What are the key metrics and their thresholds?
How do you implement all of this into an existing workflow?
This panel will explore the kind of data that can have a meaningful impact on an OTT experience, best practices for measuring different elements within the workflow, and the techniques to capture the data that you need.

When it comes to online video, there are few issues more annoying to viewers than poor visual quality. A bad visual experience can significantly impact the user’s Quality of Experience (QoE). But what makes one video look better? How can you preserve the visual acuity of source content after transcoding? And, more importantly, how can you measure when that visual quality has degraded?
In this panel assembled by the Streaming Video Alliance, you’ll learn from leading experts on visual quality about the nuances of mitigating degradation during transcoding and how to implement measurement techniques to continually monitor the perceived quality of online video moderated by Jason Thibeault.
