Content Delivery Summit is a 1-day conference developed and chaired by Dan Rayburn with the purpose of bringing together content owners, infrastructure providers, and Wall Street to discuss the business and technology of delivering video online.

While content delivery networks, cable operators and ISPs are investing hundreds of millions of dollars into their infrastructure to support video, the business models for delivering and supporting video over IP is still unclear.

This is where the Content Delivery Summit comes in. Come hear from the major broadcasters, cable operators, and content owners on how they plan to make money from online video and the impact monetization will have on vendors in the industry. Learn what the infrastructure providers are building out for and hear what platforms and technologies they are investing in.

With the service of delivering bits quickly becoming a commodity, what about all the other components of the video ecosystem that are becoming just as important as the delivery itself? Services such as content ingestion, transcoding, storage, content management, authentication, and reporting are playing an increasingly important role as higher-quality, longer-form content gets created and delivered to more platforms and more users.

With HD quality video delivery and live broadcasting picking up steam, this also brings a new set of challenges as CDNs look to differentiate themselves from one another. And inside the industry, the debate still rages on about the best network architecture, the impact of HTTP streaming, which video platform is going to win out, and how content offerings like TV Everywhere will impact capacity planning for the future. The summit will also examine the inevitable shakeout that is coming among the delivery vendors, the impact that pricing is having on the market, and we’ll discuss what business models will and won’t survive.

Come share your insights, ideas, and experiences and get the knowledge you need to help navigate the ever-changing video delivery market. This is the summit to attend to take home actionable advice and real tangible data that will help you choose the right technology, better understand customer’s needs, and provide the vision of where the business and technology of online video delivery are headed.
