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: To Buy or Build Your Media Solution?


Ooyala discusses a new answer to an old question: “Should I buy or build our media production solution?”
On Tuesday, March 6, 2018 at 16:00 GMT Phil Eade and Chris Duke from Ooyala explain how building your own media production solution can be slow, labor-intensive and hard to keep up-to-date. And buying a ready-made media production platform may leave you missing features you need or have integration issues with existing tools and workflows. This webinar examines if Ooyala Flex could help you do both at once leaving you with a more complete solution.

Webinar: Per-Title Encoding: Netflix-style Optimization for Quality and CDN Costs

Webinar: 18th Jan 2018 | 4PM GMT / 11 AM ET / 8AM PT
Apply Netflix’s technique to your videos to save bandwidth.
Since Netflix popularized the concept of flexible encoding ladders, per-title encoding optimization has been gaining recognition for its quality optimization as well as bandwidth-saving advantages. In this webinars, you will learn how encoding video at bitrates appropriate to the content achieves significant bandwidth savings, as well as improves the video quality.

Every piece of content is different, and each requires specific encoding settings to look good. Since Netflix popularized the concept of flexible encoding ladders, per-title encoding optimization has been gaining recognition for its quality and bandwidth-saving advantages.

It sounds simple enough, but there is a good reason it took the streaming giant years to make per-title encoding a viable part of their video delivery workflow. Since each and every encode requires individual analysis as the first step, the process is both very time consuming and expensive (more about the reasons why here). Until now, implementing per-title encoding optimization was only accessible to the largest streaming organizations.

Join Bitmovin Encoding Product Manager, Martin Smole, in conversation with the Sr Director of Product Marketing, Kieran Farr, in a live webinar. You will

  • Learn/review the theories behind per-title encoding optimization
  • Discuss real-life applications,
  • Go through feature setup in the Bitmovin API.
