Learn The Best Practices for Live Streaming From Those In The Trenches

Producers are taking advantage of new technologies, workflows, and production methods to create successful live events and at the Streaming Media West show in LA in two weeks, we've got Jon Orlin from TechCrunch TV moderating a session on the "Best Practices for Live Streaming". Presenters on this session are the ones in the trenches, producing some of the live events you see on the web today and will discuss the entire webcasting workflow, including how to get the video signal from the site to end user; how to build an audience; when to use multi-bit rate streaming; strategies to consider for reaching mobile devices, and how to leverage social media platforms. Confirmed speakers include:

  • Moderator: Jon Orlin, Executive Producer, TechCrunch
  • Dylan Armajani, Live Streaming Specialist, AOL
  • Alden Fertig, Product Manager, Broadcasting, Ustream
  • Pete Scott, VP, Emerging Media, Turner Sports
  • Adam Schneider, Live Event Producer (former Technical Director for LIVE @ Best Buy)
