A101: CDN Optimization: Working Towards Broadcast Economics and Quality At Scale

Track A – Thursday 2 November 
10:30 – 11:15

While CDN prices have never been lower, OTT delivery continues to weigh heavily on broadcasters’ budgets. Growing audiences, higher resolutions and more immersive video experiences bring both technical and business challenges at scale. This panel explores how content publishers are working to balance fixed revenue per subscriber models with the varying cost of delivery, while also getting the best quality for their money. The session will look at optimization efforts throughout the delivery workflow, with a special emphasis on CDN, multi-CDN, peer-to-peer, multicast and in-house delivery solutions.
