CANCELLED, TO BE RESCHEDULED | Faultline Webinars 2022 | Low Latency Streaming

Ateme  |  Kiloview  |  Velocix  |  Wowza  |  Zixi

LIVE Webinar

Consumers are waking up to the differences between latency and connection speed – forcing ISPs to pay attention to the issue, as first in the firing line if latency reaches unacceptable levels. What kind of tools are operators and streaming services implementing to guarantee low-latency? While low-latency discussions tend to focus on the transport protocol layer – SRT, RIST, Zixi, etc. – we will try to look at the bigger picture, from CPE, to last mile networks, and maybe even a smattering of 5G.

Faultline Firesides 2022 | Telstra

Telstra is more than just Australia’s incumbent telco. This is a connoisseur of commoditization in media technologies. Remember Ooyala – the once fabled online video player business that was acquired by Telstra and then swiftly written off to the tune of $500 million? Well, Telstra has a new toy in its broadcast box, with the recent acquisition of MediaCloud.  Are these playout and media management assets destined for a similar fate, or has Telstra learned valuable lessons from past mistakes?  Faultline finds out from Telstra’s Michael Day, Product Management Lead for Professional Media.

Faultline Firesides 2022 | Deutsche Telekom

Last time Faultline sat down with Deutsche Telekom, the emphasis was on discovering what had pushed the German giant towards both Android TV and RDK. Now, some 15 months later, we quiz Deutsche Telekom’s Augusto Silva, Head of TV Product Delivery Projects, on whether RDK’s days are numbered – based on a recent slew of video technology upgrades. We also discuss sustainability strategies, out-of-favor vendors, cloud trends, plus a wildcard or two – including time for a round of Faultline’s Fireside Quickfire.

There is a reason no other genre of content – not even online gaming or video conferencing – has displaced live sports as the go-to case study in the sales pitches of vendors selling battle-hardened live streaming technologies – from live quality assurance techniques, to the most personalized experiences that money can buy, and wrapping your precious sports rights up in anti-piracy war chests. While advancements in the video delivery pipeline are making things easier, we sit down to discuss some of the primary challenges facing the sports arena.

Sustainability season 2 will branch into where the innovations outside of content delivery and transport are happening to make video greener.

As a topic close to Faultline’s heart, we will explore how (or if) media and technology enterprises are taking actual actions to reduce their carbon footprints, with a focus on sustainable approaches to content delivery. But within the broader context of the climate crisis, is the video technology industry embroiled in a data crisis? Raising awareness is one thing, but are large organizations guilty of shifting too much blame onto consumers, as a greenwashing tactic?

Media & Entertainment Transcoding and Device Royalty, Forecast 2020 to 2030

Rethink TV analysts, Alex Davies and Rafi Cohen, discussed the findings of our Transcoding Forecast, on Tuesday June 1st, 2021 at 4pm UK time.

“HEVC fallout damages VVC adoption; AV1 grows on back of Android TV and OTT; LCEVC takes root, in $7.8 billion annual royalty market.”

  • Webinar Details

    The arrival of a new generation of video codecs, the first designed for our streaming-first media and entertainment world, will disrupt the transcoding market substantially, over the course of the next ten years.

    The next generation of codecs are set to be more costly, and this means that the Total Addressable Market (TAM) for video device royalties will grow 146% to $8.42 billion in the decade following 2020. Meanwhile, the Service Obtainable Market (SOM), what we believe to be the likely path, will grow to $7.62 billion in 2030. This means that patent pools will be collecting ever more royalties from the available market, with the total SOM reaching over 90% of the TAM by the end of the period.

    This report is critical for anyone who wants to understand how transcoding workloads are going to dramatically shift in the next decade as the next generation of codecs arrive. The answer sheds light on how OEMs will have to loosen their purse strings to keep up with consumer demand and puts a cool-headed roadmap on how and when these changes will likely take place.
