Video: OTT Moves Toward Microservices


 

Using microservices is a way of architecting your software platform to be nimble, simple and is just as applicable to on-premise platforms as cloud. As scaling is important for OTT providers, it’s not surprising that much work is being done in the OTT sector to utilise microservice architectures.

Even companies that are not yet actively operating on a microservices architecture are looking for vendors who at least have a strategy to cater to it for the future. This session will examine the core benefits (including redundancy, dev ops, scalability, and self-healing), the different approaches (including containerisation and orchestration via Docker, Kubernetes, and Mesos, as well as native microservices models like Erlang), and the complexities of migrating a generic architecture to a microservices architecture.

This panel covers:

    • Why is OTT so suited to microservices?
    • How microservices enable companies to be flexible to changing customer demands
    • How microservices reduce complexity
    • Benefits of continuous deployment

plus much more!

Webinar: The Power of Now: Enriching TV with sub-second latency for live streaming


Date: Today, Jan 30th, 2019 15:00 GMT / 10am EST

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
  • Browser compatibility
  • Compression, DRM & ad insertion
  • Redundancy
  • 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

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: Winning the Battle for OTT Audiences


Date: 28th July 2018, 16:00 BST

This webinar brings examples from Leading OTT operators and providers describing how they drive audience growth through quality and user experience. Of course, great content alone is not enough to sustain a successful on-demand internet-delivered OTT service.

The speakers will reveal the risk factors that can destroy audience engagement, including poor streaming performance and data privacy and security fears and as OTT becomes inseparable from live broadcast, solutions for streaming time-sensitive, high-value live events and sports are assessed.

Whether it’s broadcaster catch-up, special-interest content or producers like HBO and Disney going direct, the pressure is on for platforms trying to compete with the big beasts Netflix and Amazon. With the announcement of Salto as a joint venture of broadcasters in France, and UK channels investing in updating Freeview Play, OTT is centre-stage once again.

Audiences have huge expectations of user experience, video image and quality-of-service – regardless of the network or device they are using. Delivering and managing a consistently-high quality of experience is crucial for media companies wanting to deliver a popular, engaging and profitable OTT service – whatever the content and business model.
