Agenda Posted for OTT Executive Summit

( Nov. 16-18)

After six weeks of working through many great suggestions, I think we've curated 36 awesome sessions that are topical and very strategic for understanding the current state of the OTT industry. Over the next few weeks we'll be populating the agenda with speakers (don't worry if you haven't heard from us yet, you will).

*** Speakers and Sponsors!

We are still deluged with speaking and sponsor requests. That being said, now that the agenda is posted we see spots for about 30-40 more speakers. Thank you for your patience for those who have already submitted. Last year we had over 300 candidates for about 135 spots and we expect to exceed that this year. We are processing requests in this order (send inquires to corresponding email address please):

Planning for 2021 OTT Executive Summit Launched!

Hi everyone, we've launched planning for 2021 OTT Executive Summit ( Nov 16-18 virtual/hybrid). If you're interested in joining a similar all-star lineup this year (see image for 2020) as a speaker or sponsor, please drop us a line Last year we had over 300 candidates for 135 speaking slots (over 38 sessions) and we expect to have twice that many this year. Please send your speaker bios and abstract ideas. Below is the 2020 summary.

2020 OTT Executive Summit Recap and 2021 Plans:

Last year’s 8th annual (and our first virtual, truly global, and expanded three-day) OTT Executive Summit was a huge success! All in all, we had over 1,700 senior-level attendees who tuned in to learn from 130+ speakers from all over the world (see attached), and over 1,000 who watched the VOD recordings later. If you missed it, you can still watch all 38 sessions (25 hours of content) for free including: 3 market research presentations, 6 keynotes, fireside chats with 17 other executives, and 3 Trender Panel focus groups to hear what the average consumer has to say. Based on this success, we are keeping the same format in 2021 (we may add some hybrid sessions in cities around the world based on the status of the COVID pandemic in November). You can skim the 2020 VOD now to help you formulate your plans for 2021:

Webinar: "How OTTs Save Money and Improve Performance by Streaming Video on the Alternative Cloud"

Did you know there are more options to build, run, and grow your company in the cloud other than AWS, Google Cloud, or Microsoft Azure? Streaming content shouldn't be a huge and unknown expense, with customer support often lacking.

Simply put, complacent streamers pay too much and get passed by their competitors. In this webinar, you'll hear from over-the-top streaming companies that have grown their businesses while saving money thanks to alternative cloud providers. Learn how they:

- Receive a more predictable global pricing model that doesn’t sacrifice latency or user experience.

- Control expenses with virtual machines that come with pools of bandwidth included in the cost along with additional bandwidth offered at a flat rate.

- Programmatically deploy and manage infrastructure with open APIs and open source configuration management solutions.

- Optimize routing and peering through a high-speed global network and worldwide data centers.

- Build highly responsive support organizations in partnership with their cloud infrastructure provider.

New Webinar: "How OTTs Save Money and Improve Performance by Streaming Video on the Alternative Cloud"

The last couple of years I've been spending more time researching and understanding OTT infrastructure-- capabilities, as well as technical and cost trade-offs. Probably the biggest area of innovation is the processing platform that runs most of the OTT service-- what we affectionately call "the cloud" (I was even hired as an expert witness for a lawsuit involving cloud platforms and encoders). I've learned a lot, but most of all that there are many more options out there than the usual suspects of AWS, Google Cloud, or Microsoft Azure.

Join me, sponsor Linode, and other experts for my next webinar on this topic:
