Streaming Media Europe takes place next month in London. Programme Director Eric Schumacher-Rasmussen tells us what he’s looking forward to at this year’s conference. Here’s the first installment.
I’m thrilled with the way this year’s programme came together. We’ve got two terrific keynotes, and a roster of top-notch panellists and presenters. Also, attendees have been asking for more ‘how-to” sessions, and we’ve delivered. I’m especially excited about these sessions in particular:
Streaming Media as an Essential Component to Broadcasting
As more viewers watch TV with mobile phone or tablet in hand, major broadcasters are finding ways to leverage online video as an important part of their overall engagement strategy. Kate Quilton from the UK’s Channel 4 will show how they’ve used streaming media as a companion to broadcast for major TV events across multiple platforms.
MPEG DASH: Opportunities and Impacts on Adaptive Streaming
As MPEG DASH emerges as an open, interoperable standard for adaptive streaming, it poses as many challenges as it does opportunities. We’ve got a great panel of speakers from Microsoft, Anevia, SyncTV, Interlake Media, and Ericsson ready to discuss and debate the impact MPEG DASH will have on online video’s future.
