B102: How To: Identifying Real-World Options for Live Streaming Playback

Track B – Thursday 2 November 
11:30 – 12:30

Considering Adobe’s recent announcement providing an end of support date for Flash, you need to be ready for a Flash-less world. HTML5 has had plenty of time to play catch up and surpass Flash capabilities—or has it? In this session, learn which transport technologies from HTTP, WebRTC, RTSP, and even RTMP work best, when to use them, and where to put your development dollars for maximum return.Programming in UHD has gone up tenfold, although only a relatively Platforms small amount is still available. More media enterprises are coming online with UHD broadcasts, and standards have arrived to a certain degree, with initial support for content and devices. But we are still far from pervasive UHD-ready facilities and end-to-end workflows. This session cuts through the hype to look at what realistically can be accomplished in UHD today and experiences thus far in deploying UHD. The panelists also cast an eye to the future, with discussion around topics such as live UHD event production and streaming and the potential for high dynamic range (HDR).
