Thursday Webinar: SKY, Yahoo, Level 3 Discuss Technical Challenges of Large-Scale Live Events

Screen Shot 2016-04-11 at 3.32.43 PMThursday at 2pm ET, I’ll be moderating a StreamingMedia.com webinar on the topic of “Technical Challenges of Large-Scale Live Events“, with speakers from SKY, Yahoo and Level 3. This is a new webinar series we are starting at StreamingMedia.com where end-user customers from the broadcast, media, and publishing verticals will present and discuss best practices on a host of streaming video topics.

The first webinar in the series, sponsored by Level 3, will take place Thursday and will be devoted to the topic of live streaming. Hear from Omer Luzzatti, Senior Director, Head of Video Platform at Yahoo; Ben Forman, Principal Streaming Architect at BSkyB; and Jon Alexander, Senior Director, Product Management at Level 3.

The webinar will explore techniques successfully used to provide a satisfying live viewing experience at very large scale. Learn from experts who have conquered the myriad technical challenges—how to present live video to many people, in many formats, on many devices, over many networks—all at the same time. Specifics such as encoding, transcoding, bitrate variation, distribution, mass authorization, and more will be discussed.
