How to Apply Content-Adaptive Encoding to Reduce Bitrates Up to 50% Without Any Loss in Quality
10:30 a.m. - 10:50 a.m.

This session will present Beamr’s content-adaptive technology and its role as a stand-alone bitrate optimizer for already compressed H.264 files, and Beamr’s content-adaptive rate-control which when integrated with the encoder enables HEVC 1080p at just 1.5Mbps. Attendees will learn why the fixed recipe approach to encoding is not sufficient to achieve the low bitrates that congested networks require with the quality that is being demanded by consumers.

Attend this session for your chance to win: For every qualified OTT content distributor, managed service operator, telco, or media & entertainment company who attends the session, Beamr will grant a free 45-day evaluation license of up to ten (10) Beamr 5 or Beamr Optimizer instances. Beamr 5 is the world’s best HEVC software encoder SDK and Beamr Optimizer, formerly known as Beamr Video, is widely acclaimed for it’s ability to reduce bitrates by up to 50% without video quality degradation. For those looking to experience the benefits of the Beamr optimization process as part of their HEVC encoding workflow, Beamr will grant an upgrade to Beamr 5x which is the world's highest quality HEVC encoder able to produce 4K at less than 10Mbps and 1080p at just 1.5Mbps. A small administrative fee will be required, but qualified customers will have the option of putting these files into their production workflows. Not every company will qualify and Beamr reserves the right to deny any evaluation or upgrade request.

Not Just Another Technical Solution – Movingimage Enterprise Video Platform (EVP) Impacts Your Life
10:55 a.m. - 11:15 a.m.

Video is changing the way companies function. Advanced Enterprise Video Platforms (EVPs) power corporate intranets and allow marketers to reach customers via multiple channels. The key element that is changing the market is how content creation has shifted from using professionally designed content to employee-generated content. For this shift to be successful, EVP tools must be easy to use for employees at all levels. Plus, EVPs also must serve as the central integration hub for video-related technologies, from intranet CDNs to 360° VR video. In this presentation, we will focus on how video is changing the way companies like DHL, Volkswagen, Vodafone and Allianz operate, how video can be used to improve the customer experience, key integration challenges and the importance of having added levels of security within the EVP.
