Announcing The Two-Day Streaming Summit at NAB Show New York: Call For Speakers Now Open

Following the successful launch of my new Streaming Summit event at the April NAB Show in Las Vegas, I am excited to announce we are expanding the Streaming Summit ( to two full days, at the NAB Show New York, taking place October 17-18th. This is the start of a new focus at the show, with dedicated tracks on how to package, monetize and distribute online video. A show for the streaming media industry that will cover the entire streaming stack and all the technologies and platforms that power today’s streaming services.

The Summit will be two full days with over 75 speakers covering monetization and technical topics, along with networking opportunities. The format will consist of fireside chats, technical best practices presentations, round-table panels and a demo track to showcase some of the newest technologies and opportunities in the market. From technical topics like CMAF, AV1, blockchain, SRT, transcoding and SSAI to business topics like direct to consumer (D2C), content bundling, OTT monetization and video advertising models, the Streaming Summit will give attendees a holistic view of the entire online video ecosystem.

The call for speakers is now open and you can find all the details on submitting on the website. Some of the topics that will be covered include:

This the start of a new, dedicated focus at the NAB Show New York and an opportunity for individuals and companies to get involved. If you want to be involved, have ideas, or give me feedback on topics you want to see covered, I want to hear from you! My cell number is 917-523-4562 and you can call it anytime. My goal is to help provide the industry with a place we can all come together to highlight, discuss and debate what is taking place in the streaming media industry. I am looking for moderators, pitches, ideas and we are also offering vendors the opportunity to get involved via extremely affordable sponsorships. Even ticket prices to attend the event are under $700 for both days and I am personally giving out a discount code to help showcase all the new content coming to the NAB Show New York.

With about 75 speaking spots, I won’t be able to fulfill everyone’s request to be involved. I can’t stress enough how important it is to get a speaking submission in quickly. Once spots are gone I can’t open up new ones or add more slots to the program. So please visit the speaking submission page or call me (917-523-4562) at any time.

In addition, in conjunction with the NAB Show New York, I will also be launching a new summit, taking place on October 15th, that will focus on content distribution at the edge. A focused one-day event that will explore all that is taking place with CDN, WAF, DDOS, DNS and other services that are disrupting the traditional cloud platforms. The show will highlight how companies continue to search for improvement of the end-user experience with new decentralized services that requires getting closer to the eyeballs. I’ll have more details on that shortly, but feel free to reach out to me in the meantime if you’d like more details.
