Industry Insights: Have Traditional CDNs Jumped the Shark?

Monday, May 23: 9:45 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.

This year around 10% of viewers streamed the Super Bowl and it took the joint effort of most of the Tier 1 CDNs to handle the load. What is it going to take if 50% or 75% of viewers want to stream it? The approaches that got streaming distribution to this point are not the ones that are needed for a world of exclusively streamed marquis sporting events. It's time for a change. Let’s explore the three things that need to happen before the cord goes away completely so your streaming event doesn’t deliver just a spinning wheel.

Industry Insights: CDN Challenges of CMAF Low Latency Live Streaming

Monday, May 23: 10:00 a.m. - 10:15 a.m.

This presentation focuses on the biggest challenges that CDNs face related to adopting low-latency HTTP streaming. In the Low Latency live streaming workflow, a lot of focus is put on the origin/encoding processes, with less discussion about the necessary optimizations required on the network and edge levels. This presentation will discuss a number of those optimizations, such as request coalescing, request multiplexing, HTTP2 upstream connections, data buffering, network latency, and stability, to name a few.

Fireside Chat: Super Bowl LVI—The OTT Breakthrough?

Monday, May 23: 10:15 a.m. - 10:40 a.m.

Super Bowl LVI drew 11.2 million viewers through streaming services, twice as many as the year before. Is this the final breakthrough for OTT? Do we anticipate doubling up again in 2023? If so, what do we need to prepare for? In this fireside chat, in cooperation with Women in Streaming Media, we ask Dana Wilson the questions everybody is curious about, with the experience from Super Bowl LVI and in preparation of the Super Bowl LVII in mind.

Why the Edge Matters for Media Delivery

Monday, May 23: 11:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.

"The Edge" has been a buzzword for several years, but we've reached the turning point where media delivery can't do without it. Even CDNs have renamed themselves "edge networks" and are increasingly taking over cloud functions for applications, security, and communication. But how is the edge relevant for media delivery? In this presentation, you get to know why the edge is relevant for media delivery and why it is here to stay.

Fireside Chat: The Green CDN—Fact or Fiction?

Monday, May 23: 11:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

With streaming services being responsible for 2% to 3% of all global carbon emissions—a number that is rapidly growing—what role can CDNs play in lowering the overall carbon footprint in the future? Can they actually bring about material change? In this fireside chat, we dig deep into how CDNs can take responsibility for becoming greener and look at what some are already doing.

The Benefits & Dangers of Multi-CDN

More than 50% of all OTT services, and the vast majority of the largest ones, use a multi-CDN approach for video delivery. The benefits are clear: availability, scalability, performance, cost, and others. But doing multi CDN the right way is often learned the hard way. In this presentation, you learn the best practices for multi CDN without needing to go through the disasters that can come with doing it wrong.

Data and analytics are increasingly important to ensure good content delivery, whether that data comes from CDNs, networks, OTT services, or elsewhere. Having access to the right data to get the right insights is one of the biggest priorities facing the content delivery industry today. But what is good data, and what are good insights? In this presentation, you learn how to determine what data is important and how to get valuable insights that matter.



Fireside Chat: Beyond the Theory of Decentralization, Blockchain, & Crypto CDN

Monday, May 23: 3:50 p.m. - 4:15 p.m.

Decentralized CDN, the use of blockchain, and the economics of crypto have entered the realm of content delivery. We cut through the hype around these technologies and focus on how all of this really works in practice.

Content Delivery: More Than Just Media

Monday, May 23: 4:15 p.m. - 4:45 p.m.

For large-scale video delivery, the use of CDNs is inevitable. But what is good video delivery if other parts of your website, app, APIs, or something else is overloaded, causing issues with your end users? And what about security or running applications on the edge? This presentation gives you an overview of typical situations with large-scale video delivery and what other services from CDNs you might want to consider to keep users satisfied.

Fireside Chat: The Secret of a Good Origin

Monday, May 23: 4:45 p.m. - 5:15 p.m.

Every great streaming experience starts with a good origin, but the value of a good origin is often neglected and misunderstood. There is a wide range of elements to think about when building a good architecture for your origin, and even more to consider as your service scales to more users. In this fireside chat, we discuss the key considerations to think about when building, and then building out, an origin, and share some lessons our experts have learned along the way.
