Video: Automation and Workflow Solutions for Transcoding

While video consumption and distribution has grown exponentially in the past few years, converting and preparing this content for the digital realm was largely a ‘black art’ until recently, when several enterprise-grade solutions came onto the market. In this session from Streaming Media Europe 2009, panelists from organisations that are utilising those solutions talked about their cost and benefit to enterprises large and small.

Moderator:

  • Matt Smith, Senior Director, Systems Architecture and Strategy, Inlet Technologies

Panel:

  • Martin Boronski, CTO, M6 Web
  • Jon Alexander, Manager, European Content Product Delivery, Level 3 Communications
  • Alex Nunes, Head of Media Services (iPlayer), BBC
  • Robert Senica, Manager Content Operations, SONY-DADC
  • Andy Wilson, Manager, Red Bee Media

29 May News Roundup: Brightcove, Datmedia, Harmonic, Microsoft, Ooyala

This week’s developments in online video:

Brightcove announced it had been selected by La Vanguardia to publish the newspaper’s online video. La Vanguardia is the largest newspaper in Barcelona, and this marks another big move by Brightcove in their on-going European expansion.

Datmedia is making a major push with its Datpresenter online video platform (which Streaming Media reviewed here), but they’ve also introduced a very neat new enhanced podcasting tool. You can learn more about it by listening to this podcast, which we recorded with Datmedia’s Jay Pritchard at Streaming Media East in New York earlier this month.

Harmonic Inc. announced at the ANGA Cable show in Cologne that its Direct-2-Edge (D2E) solution had been deployed by South Korea’s SK Broadband, for what it called the “largest commercial IPTV launch to date.”

• France Télévisions is partnering with Microsoft, Inlet, and Level 3 to present the French International tennis tournament, held at Roland Garros, live in HD using Microsoft’s IIS7 Smooth Streaming.

• Ooyala officially announced its new “Swift” player; we broke the news last week in another Streaming Media podcast.
