Live sports: ensuring global streaming doesn’t leave audiences screaming
Presented by IHS Markit and Verizon Media
The era of mass-market live streaming is upon us. DAZN, Eleven, Amazon, and Facebook have bid for and secured a broad spectrum of league rights and have launched pan-national, multi-territory services. The streaming landscape is nonetheless littered with a multitude of past outages, debacles, and blackouts. What does it take to run a successful, global, live-streaming service? This webinar addresses the global streaming landscape, including: how to reliably reach a global mass audience; balancing infrastructure sufficiency against infrastructure costs; ensuring backend resources scale instantaneously with the real-time ebb and flow of audiences and consumption; and achieving stream and experience personalization.
Who Should Attend
Streaming video engineers, development leads, product managers, CTOs, and solution architects who are responsible for the successful build, deployment, and/or operation of their service's technology stack. Financial analysts and the media are also encouraged to attend.
