The European CDN Market: Video

The European CDN market is quite different from the US CDN market, with more of an emphasis on Quality of Service than on pricing. This panel discussion from Streaming Media Europe 2010 breaks down the European market by the numbers and examines cultural, market and technological differences among the various regions within Europe. Finally, panellists discuss the varying services – CDNs, hosting providers and streaming providers – and how they fit into these regional differences.

Announcing the Content Delivery Summit at Streaming Media Europe

One of the key differences between the online video industry in the U.S. and Europe lies in the different approaches to content delivery, which Nigel Regan outlined in depth in The State of the European Content Delivery Market last autumn. Because these differences are so pronounced, we’ve added a new one-day event at Streaming Media Europe called the Content Delivery Summit, a one-day conference will bring together content owners, infrastructure providers, and the financial community to discuss the business and technology of delivering video online.

Watch this space for more information about the event, but if you’ve got an idea for a panel session topic, the call for speakers is now open, and we look forward to seeing your submissions.

In the meantime, here’s video from a Streaming Media Europe 2009 session called “Will The Cloud Rain On The CDNs’ Parade,” which examines the state of the content delivery market in Europe, particularly as it relates to cloud services such as Amazon’s CloudFront.

Streaming Media Europe Videos Now Available

Videos from all of the breakout sessions at this year’s Streaming Media Europe are now available here. Unfortunately, we’re not able to present videos of the keynote sessions, but if you take a look at the player, you’ll see that all 18 sessions are now online for viewing; you can also embed links to individual session videos on your own sites if you wish. I’ll be highlighting and discussing individual session videos in future posts.

Also, speaker presentations from the sessions and several of the pre-conference workshops are now available on the Streaming Media Europe programme page. If a particular presentation you’re looking for isn’t there, please let me know, and I’ll do my best to track it down.
