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!

Video: Secure Media Streaming and Delivery

Storing, preparing, and delivering media content securely involves leveraging systems that can scale and ensure top-of-the-line security. This webinar explores doing that by implementing workflows in AWS’s highly available, scalable, and secure cloud services such as Amazon S3 for storage, Amazon Elastic Transcoder, and Amazon CloudFront for delivery.

This session came from the Discovery Track at Streaming Media East and shows how you can build a media stack on AWS and use JW Player to deliver protected HTTP Live Streams (HLS) to various devices, including iOS, Android, and Windows desktops.

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: Next Generation TV

Date: Thursday 15th November 2018, 11am PT, 2pm ET, 18:00 GMT

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.

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: Sub-Second Global Live Streaming

Viewers are increasingly watching live sports and other realtime events online, but the inherent delay in traditional online streaming often means they learn about an important play from social media before they are able to see it. Delivering true realtime global online streaming requires a new approach.

Video delivery experts from Limelight Networks present ways to deliver broadcast quality low-latency live streams, including the ability for viewers to watch live video with less than one second of latency on standard web browsers—without special plug-ins. Also discussed is how to integrate live video and interactive data to open up new workflows in sports, gaming, auctions, and more and make live viewing a more interactive social experience.

Join this webinar for:
• Latest market data on the evolving viewer expectations for online
• Delivering low-latency live video with HLS and DASH chunked streaming techniques
• Realtime global live streaming using WebRTC
• How integrated live bidirectional data sharing can help open up new business opportunities
• and much more!

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.
