After two successful years at Streaming Media West, the Live Streaming Summit is coming to Streaming Media East. Live Streaming Summit focuses exclusively on the challenges and opportunities inherent in delivering large-scale live events and live linear channels to multiple screens. Sessions will address every step of the live video workflow, including ingestion, transcoding, management, protection, distribution, analytics, and post-event evaluation.

Whether you’re streaming one-time entertainment, news, sports, esports, or worship events, or delivering recurring live content, we’ve got you covered. While other events focus on event video production, the Live Streaming Summit takes it to the next level, covering the technologies and strategies required to take that video and deliver it to viewers watching on computers, tablets, mobile phones, set-top boxes, and smart TVs.

Topics covered will include the following:

  • Best practices for backhaul, transmission, and ingest—satellite, fiber, cellular, and more
  • Encoding and transcoding—on-prem, cloud, and hybrid
  • Management—metadata, content protection, stream stitching, and preparation for syndication and post-event VOD viewing
  • User experience—live streaming platforms, video players, APIs, clip sharing, and social media integration
  • Monetization—advertising, subscription, and pay-per-view
  • Distribution—content delivery networks, real-time analytics, QoS, and QoE
  • Post-event evaluation—how to determine if your event was a success
  • Case studies from leading content owners

Streaming Media’s Live Streaming Summit is the only U.S. event to address the highest-level issues and opportunities related to live streaming. This is a must-attend show for technical and business decision makers whose jobs depend on delivering successful large-scale live events and live linear channels online.

Live streaming is easy, but doing it right isn’t. You need a live streaming playbook, one that covers the whole game, from planning and promotion to production, delivery, and reporting. This session will give you just that, from leaders in live streaming whose proven achievements provide the blueprint for your future successes.

11:45 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.

LS102 - The Live Linear Challenge

As services like Sling TV and Direct TV grow in popularity, viewers are becoming accustomed to being able to replicate the lean-back broadcast experience familiar. But live linear streaming presents a daunting array of challenges, from ingest and encoding to DRM, metadata, and ad insertion. This panel will explore these challenges and discuss a range of solutions.

1:45 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.

LS103 - Technologies for Live Streaming to Multiple Platforms

Streaming to one live streaming service is so 2016. Today, in addition to streaming to your own website or app, you may want to distribute your live stream to multiple other outlets like Facebook Live, YouTube Live, Livestream, Twitter, and Twitch. Fortunately, there are a variety of products and services that enable streaming to multiple output locations, from desktop encoders and appliances to cloud services. This session will detail the various options and lay out their pros, cons, and pricing models. 

2:45 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.

LS104 - Latency Sucks! So What Can You Do About it?

Live event streaming lets viewers experience the action with unsurpassed immediacy and interactivity—both of which are ruined if they find out about a key play or big award on social media before they see it in the stream.

LS204 - The Future of Live Streaming

As big as live streaming is now, that’s nothing compared to the growth we can expect in the next 5 years. Today, viewers expect instant-on, HD quality on every device, but as technologies like VR gain traction, they’ll expect more immersive experiences. This forward-looking panel discussion digs in to predict what the future holds for content, technology, and monetization.
