PANEL SESSION (A101): cdN OPTIMIZATION: working towards broadcast economics and quality at scale
For this opening panel session, Streamroot is bringing together an A-list cast of broadcasters and CDN providers. Rodrigo Violante, CTO at Televisa, Zach Shenker, Principal Video Software Engineer at CBS Interactive, Flavio Ribeiro, Lead Engineer at the New York Times and Ryan Korte, VP Media and Content Development at Level 3 Communications will share unique insights into their delivery strategy.
We’ll go through the technical and business challenges faced by the industry: growing audiences, higher resolutions, more immersive video experiences, as well as how they are overcoming fixed revenues per subscriber models vs. varying delivery costs, and getting the best quality for money. We aim to 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.
