CDN Optimization: Working Towards Broadcast Economics and Quality At Scale

While CDN prices have never been lower, OTT delivery continues to weigh heavily on broadcasters’ budgets. Growing audiences, higher resolutions and more immersive video experiences bring both technical and business challenges at scale. At the Streaming Media West show, taking place Nov. 2/3, one panel explores how content publishers are working to balance fixed revenue per subscriber models with the varying cost of delivery, while also getting the best quality for their money. The session will look at optimization efforts throughout the delivery workflow, with a special emphasis on CDN, multi-CDN, peer-to-peer, multicast and in-house delivery solutions. Confirmed speakers include:

  • Moderator: Gautier Demond, VP, Global Sales, Streamroot
  • Panelist: Flavio Ribeiro, Lead Engineer, The New York Times
  • Panelist: Zac Shenker, Principal Video Software Engineer, CBS Interactive
  • Panelist: Rodrigo Violante, CTO, Televisa
  • Panelist: Ryan Korte, Principal Architect, Content and Media Development, Level 3 Communications
