Video content is flooding the internet and will continue to dominate IP traffic and overall Internet traffic growth representing 80 percent of all Internet traffic by 2021 (Cisco, 2017). Companies are aware of the benefits of videos but struggle with the implementation of a proper solution to manage video assets.
This paper centers on how to choose a video platform and points out that an enterprise focus is necessary to balance the use with the cost of video in the enterprise. Enterprise video platforms are an investment, a technical challenge and a security issue, so it is critical to differentiate enterprise video needs from those features required to meet standard video consumer needs. A true enterprise solution must have the ability to accommodate  customers with varying security needs and must be easy to integrate in the IT landscape.

As OTT becomes an increasingly important mechanism for the delivery of broadcast quality content, understanding how every step of the delivery chain is performing is becoming critical. The monetization of content relies on being able to capture and retain viewing customers and to do that requires compelling content and a great experience. If the customer experience is poor it is now easier than ever for customers to churn to new suppliers.

This paper outlines the challenges faced by content providers in ensuring that that experience is as good as it can be. It provides an overview of the technologies involved in delivering OTT content, the differences between Quality of Service and Quality of Experience and why it is vital to monitor the actual content being delivered every step of the way.

For business to successfully develop new features while offering a smooth and stable user experience, the use of APIs has become critical.

APIs are revolutionizing many industries, especially the OTT video industry, by enabling integration of features that would otherwise require tremendous resources to develop in-house. Many companies have already put themselves a few steps ahead by integrating video APIs to boost their revenue (we're talking possible 3-digit ROI here).

In this white paper, you'll learn about:

- How APIs can speed development and boost business

- Technical basics of a video API

- Using APIs for monetization and cost-reduction

- How APIs are used in the OTT industry

If you're not already familiar with APIs, especially all the opportunities video APIs bring on the table, this is the moment to catch up.

For a video service to be successful today, stability, rapid results and continuing improvement to the overall experience are critical.

While it’s tempting to think of app development as the biggest factor for success, software is really just a component of a much larger effort. Successful apps are video businesses, developed on a basis of clear goals and objectives, defined up front with all the success factors in mind, and are clearly defined before development even begins.

  • The video market situation and trends
  • Requirements to be a successful video business
  • Ways to overcome video business challenges
  • What to consider when creating quality video experience
