Transcoding: In-House Or In The Cloud?

Content owners can now choose from a large number of new transcoding solutions including in-house enterprise-class software and hardware appliances; cloud-based solutions; and transcoding services offered by CDNs and other third-party vendors. Given this breadth of choices, choosing the right transcoding mechanism, or combination of mechanisms, has significant impact on the cost, quality, security, and reliability of the overall solution.

At the Streaming Media East show, on May 10th and 11th, we've got Arjun Saksena, Lead Product Manager of the Yahoo! Video Platform moderating a panel entitled "Transcoding: In-House Or In The Cloud?". This session will focus on the benefits and trade-offs of each mechanism and help you select the best solution for your needs. Confirmed speakers include:

  • Moderator: Arjun Saksena, Lead Product Manager, Yahoo! Video Platform
  • Tal Saraf, GM, CloudFront, Amazon
  • Karl Wiley, VP, GM of Services, Shutterfly
  • David Dudas, VP, Video Solutions, Sorenson Media
