Rethink TV | Investigating the Energy Use of Video Delivery and Consumption 2022-2027

In this LIVE webinar – on Tuesday January 31st, at 4pm GMT – Rethink TV analyst, Rafi Cohen, will guide you through the findings of our latest report, “Investigating the Energy Use of Video Delivery and Consumption 2022-2027”.  The webinar comprises analyst presentationfollowed by Audience Q&A.

  • Webinar Details

    Our hope is that this report will merely be Rethink TV’s introduction into the world of sustainability within video, provoking conversation and contributions from across the ecosystem by the next time we refresh this model. As the title suggests, this first report is simply an ‘investigation’ into energy consumption, and not a definitive reading as other initiatives like Greening of Streaming are trying to achieve.

    Although carefully considered, the model was constructed with broad strokes in a high-level manner. We hope that in the spirit of sustainability being a universal issue, our future work on the subject will involve active contributions from the industry. This is an attempt to answer a question that our clients ask us recently – “what is the environmental impact of the video industry?”

Sustainability in Streaming

Accedo  |  BBC  |  Greening of Streaming  |  Open Broadcast Systems

LIVE Webinar, Tuesday February 7th, 2023 at 4pm GMT

Moderated by:  Tommy Flanagan, Editor of Faultline

Is broadcast greener than streaming? Is on-demand greener than live? Is subscription-based greener than ad-supported? These are some of the questions facing video companies that frankly no one has definitive answers to. The only way we can get anywhere close to clarity, is by continuing to have these kinds of discussions with experts, while encouraging collaboration to flesh out the data required to meet sustainability goals and – importantly – to call out greenwashing.

Listen in and quiz our panel of experts on where we are with sustainability in streaming, a year on from our last discussion on the topic.

    Rethink TV is refreshing its CDN forecasts, and this year, Open Caching is the technology that has set the industry abuzz.

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.

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?
