The real transition from traditional TV broadcast to online video is happening behind the scenes as incumbents and new providers embrace cloud resources to provide a scalable, distributed means to reach the widest possible audience. But the cloud is complicated. With a myriad of providers and a bevy of services available, providers need to understand both how the cloud can help streaming video workflows as well as the challenges involved with implementation and integration. In this panel, you’ll hear experts discuss a variety of challenges with cloud-based workflows, the growing importance of edge computing, and best practices for adopting cloud technologies in video delivery.

Topics Covered

  1. Are all the technologies associated with traditional broadcast moving to the cloud? What’s staying on premise? Which video delivery technologies are “cloud-ready” and which aren’t?
  2. Various cloud technologies to deliver streaming video have been around for a while. How have they changed over the past few years that make them even more attractive?
  3. What should a traditional broadcaster, perhaps enabling a streaming service, or a pure-play streaming company look for in a cloud provider for their video streaming technologies?
  4. Traditional broadcasters often have hardware redundancy built into their operations. But how does redundancy work with cloud providers?
  5. What are the impacts of cloud technologies on video delivery latency? Are there ways that video distributors can mitigate?
  6. With video workflow elements moving to the cloud (and outside the firewall), what are some of the security considerations that video distributors must address?
  7. What are some of the ways that cloud technologies improve the video delivery workflow? What about complicating it?
  8. Is there a potential for “vendor lock-in” when transitioning traditional on-premises video delivery hardware or software to the cloud? If there is, how can a video distributor avoid this?
