A two-day event that focuses on the business and technology of OTT video will again be tied to the annual NAB Show New York conference.
Co-produced by streaming industry expert Dan Rayburn, the Streaming Summit will be held October 16-17 at the Javits Convention Center.
The Streaming Summit will feature OTT platform experts, broadcasters, publishers, advertisers and developers speaking about the challenges and opportunities in packaging, monetizing and distributing online video.
Technical discussions will focus on how to deliver the best viewing experiences across packaging content, transcoding, media management, playback, and analytics.
Last year’s lineup included executives from Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, NBC Sports, Disney, CBS Interactive, Discovery, AT&T, Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, Roku, NBA, FOX Sports, Sling TV, Comcast, Fubo TV, Viacom, and the Washington Post.
“The adaptation of digitally-driven distribution is imperative to our industry and we are excited to again provide our NAB Show New York attendees with unique, executive insight on how to bolster their online video services and platforms,” said NAB EVP/Conventions and Business Operations Chris Brown. “The Streaming Summit is the premier environment to gain a competitive edge in today’s rapidly evolving multiscreen environment.”
Rayburn said, “With all the new OTT services and live linear offerings in the market, content owners, broadcasters, publishers and distributors need the most up-to-date business insights and technical tips, to get the most out of their video services. The Streaming Summit will showcase and discuss the current monetization models for video, the packaging and playback of content, and highlight the best technical implementations of the video stack.”
