Streaming Forum 2013, the new cutting-edge event by the team behind Streaming Media Europe, will focus on the streaming media game-changers that will continue to drive our industry to new heights in the coming years, with a special emphasis on key hot spots. Here we take a closer look at the Formats, Protocols and Standards track.

If you’ve paid any attention to the technical discussions surrounding online video in the last year, you know that MPEG-DASH and HEVC/H.265 are the buzzwords of the day. But are they just buzzwords, or do they really represent a sea change in how video is delivered via IP? This track will devote several sessions exclusively to MPEG-DASH and HEVC/H.265, along with exploring related topics such as encoding for multiple screens, closed captioning, and choosing enterprise-class and cloud encoders:

  • How to Encode for Multiple Screens
  • Case Study: How The BBC Ensured Live Streaming Resilience For The Olympics
  • Case Study: HBO Europe – A Broadcaster’s Guide to the TV Everywhere Universe
  • Practicalities of Putting Captions on IP-Delivered Video Content

It’s our biggest issue of the year, and it includes comprehensive year-in-review articles looking at the most notable developments in 2008, as well as a look forward at what’s likely to come in 2009. It also includes case studies and a slew of how-to and buyer’s guide features, including the following:

  • Choosing a Camcorder
  • Selecting the Right Nonlinear Video Editor
  • Picking a Content Delivery Provider
  • The 2009 Video Encoder Shoot-Out
  • How to Add Closed Captions to Online Video
  • How to Generate Automatic Speech Transcripts in Flash Video
  • Making Sense of the H.264 Licensing Labyrinth

Also featured are a roster of case studies from each of the major verticals: entertainment, education, enterprise, government, and advertising. You can subscribe to the magazine here, and if you’re interested in advertising, contact Sjoerd Vogt at sjoerd.vogt (at) in4m.com.
