B102 - Secure OTT: The Do's And Don't Of Multi-DRM In An HTML5 World


he industry has made big strides forward in bridging the divides between HLS and DASH, Fragmented MP4s and Transport Streams, CBC and CRT, and the myriad little details that continue to cause fragmentation and chaos in delivery and rendering of DRM-secured content to devices. Achieving cost-effective, cross-platform secure playback remains a critical yet mostly unsolved challenge. While the unified vision of HTML5 and seamless playback across browsers is still several years from potential fruition, there are methods to conquer the madness and implement delightful, yet secure, OTT services. This presentation will provide an update on the state of DRM including insight into the apps vs browsers debate, customer needs, and best practices recommendations.

B104: The Business Of Skinny Bundles and Consumer Choice

In recent months, Pay TV carriers and streaming providers like Hulu and YouTube have introduced "skinny bundles" in an effort to prevent cord-cutters and/or attract younger, price conscious consumers. But many of these offerings don't provide much real choice or only leave providers with slim margins due to high carriage fees. This panel of video industry experts will discuss the latest research on consumer channel priorities and pricing analysis and provide perspectives on what types of bundles consumers want to watch.

B201: Establishing Parity Between Online Video and Broadcast Television

We are starting to see momentum gather for online video: cable subscribers are declining and online video consumption is increasing. But the two experiences, watching TV and watching online video, aren’t the same yet. Broadcast television generally has better quality, more consistent delivery, and improved customer service. Yet the allure of anytime, anywhere access from any device is driving consumer behavior towards OTT services like Netflix, Hulu, HBO, and more. In this panel, we’ll talk about what it might take to get parity between the traditional television experience and streaming video.
