Edge Computing and Video Delivery (March 28th, 2019 at 10AM PST)
Whether or not edge computing is the next generation of cloud technology, the edge plays a vital role in the streaming video experience. The closer a video is stored to the requesting user, the faster the delivery and better the experience. But, streaming also provides a lot more opportunity for interactivity, engagement, and data collection than traditional broadcast television. That means as the edge grows in compute capacity and functionality, it could enable new and exciting use cases, such as AI, that could improve the viewer experience. In this webinar, we’ll explore the state of edge computing and how it might be leveraged in streaming video.
Panelists for this exciting webinar include:
- Brian Stevenson (Ericsson EDGE GRAVITY)
- Brent Yates (Hellastorm)
- Steve Miller-Jones (Limelight Networks)
- Mark Fisher (Qwilt)
This webinar will be moderated by Jason Thibeault, Executive Director of the Streaming Video Alliance. You can follow Jason on Twitter @_jasonthibeault.
