Streaming Media Europe takes place next month in London. Programme Director Eric Schumacher-Rasmussen shares the second installment of what he’s looking forward to at this year’s conference.
If you take a look at the agenda for the conference, you’ll notice a positive shift from previous years’ events. While we’ll still offer our fair share of panel discussions, the feedback from attendees has indicated less interest in ‘blue-sky’ theorising and a desire for more practically-focussed presentations. I’m especially excited about these sessions in particular:
How To: Encoding Video for iDevices
Encoding expert Jan Ozer is offering several sessions at this year’s event, but none is more important than this one. Even with all the competing devices on the market, you’re judged on how well your video looks on the iPhone and iPad, and Jan will let you in on his secrets.
Live from (Almost) Anywhere
The biggest innovation in online video capture and delivery has been the advent of cellular multiplexers and link aggregators, which are transforming the way news and major events like the Olympics are covered. After all the new product announcements are made at IBC, our panel will make sense of the technology and how best to deploy it.
