Transitioning Video Delivery to the Cloud: Best Practices
Tuesday, November 20, 2018 at 10:00am (PST)
This webinar will address (or addressed) the following:
- 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?
- 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?
- 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?
- Traditional broadcasters often have hardware redundancy built into their operations. But how does redundancy work with cloud providers?
- What are the impacts of cloud technologies on video delivery latency? Are there ways that video distributors can mitigate?
- With video workflow elements moving to the cloud (and outside the firewall), what are some of the security considerations that video distributors must address?
- What are some of the ways that cloud technologies improve the video delivery workflow? What about complicating it?
- 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?
