The NAB is once again teaming up with the chairman of the Streaming Summit Conference to produce a two-day event with a focus on the OTT video industry.
Thanks to the efforts of Dan Rayburn, the Streaming Summit will take place April 8-9 in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center in concert with the 2019 NAB Show.
The event will feature nearly 100 speakers across two tracks. Technical topics to be addressed include the transcoding, packaging, monetization and playback of live and on-demand video, including how to deliver the best viewing experience. Attendees will also learn how to capitalize on direct-to-consumer offerings and how some of the largest companies in the world are monetizing their video libraries via advertising, subscription and other monetization strategies.
“The Streaming Summit is a critical component in NAB Show’s continued focus on the business, technology and content powering the phenomenal growth of OTT video and streaming,” said NAB EVP/Conventions and Business Operations Chris Brown. ”This one-of-a-kind summit is an opportunity for attendees to hear from key influencers in the business.”
The Streaming Summit will also feature nearly a dozen fireside chats with key executives in the online video market, including Amazon, Google, Facebook, Comcast, Hulu and many other leading OTT platforms.
A new dedicated website has been launched at nabstreamingsummit.com and includes details on the call for speakers submission process.
