Delivering a consistently high-quality video experience to consumers is a huge endeavor for broadcasters and distributors because it requires them to navigate an increasingly complex ecosystem – fraught with multiple devices and screen sizes, various operating systems and, perhaps most importantly, different encoding schemes.

This webinar will look at the challenges faced by major broadcasters, pay-TV providers and online video providers when it comes to navigating the various encoding standards such as MPEG-DASH, MPEG 4/H.264, and HEVC.  

Specifically, we look at the pros and cons of the various encoding standards and discuss how they can efficiently process and package and transport IP video to the end device.  Will there ever be a unifying standard for online video encoding?

And if not, what does this mean for video providers?  Can distributors and broadcasters meet the growing requirements for delivering IP video to various different devices without one consistent standard? How will providers be impacted by growing demand for 4K/UHD video?

1. Will there ever be a unifying standard for online video encoding? Which one is most likely to be widely adopted?

2. If not, what does this mean for video providers? Can distributors and broadcasters meet the growing requirements for delivering IP video to various different devices without one consistent standard?

3. How will providers be impacted by growing demand for 4K/UHD video? (Note: can be tailored depending on the type of providers speaking at the event, e.g. broadcast/OTT providers, ecosystem providers, encoders, etc.)

4. Where can providers realize the best cost savings in encoding/transcoding?

Join Kontron, the COM Express® market leader, and Intel as we explain how and why it makes sense to implement scalable solutions. Learn about the benefits of using Kontron’s scalable product portfolio and how you can seamlessly deploy these solutions yourself. Our subject matter experts Martin Unverdorben, Kontron Product Manager and Intel’s Robert Eng, will explain the range of different processors, scalability within a product line and how we go “beyond the standard” product lines. Processors range from low-end CPUs like Quark to high-end processors like Atom. Martin will also cover the various form factors including COMe mini, COMe compact, COMe basic and SMARC™.

  • How Kontron goes Beyond the Standard
  • How and why to implement scalable solutions seamlessly deploy (DIY!)
  • From low-end CPUs to high-end processors on various form factors
  • Come Scale with Us!

Real World Use Case: 
How UPC Hungary rapidly rolled-out new value-add OTT video service to 500k+ subscribers

Date:                      September 8, 2015
Speakers:               Kontron, Intel, UPC, ActiveVideo

Within the last year, cable operator UPC Hungary has demonstrated just how well Internet video services can integrate with traditional pay-TV services, with YouTube naturally proving to be the biggest attraction with subscribers. Last September, UPC Hungary announced that customers were viewing more than one million minutes per day of YouTube content during the first three months of availability on TV, with the average viewing time per session at about 45 minutes.

To make YouTube available on existing STBs, UPC Hungary virtualized boxes’ functionality in the cloud, using the CloudTV Streamcast platform from ActiveVideo. But what was the overall approach that enabled UPC to deploy the service so quickly? What cloud infrastructure was implemented to ensure the network could keep up with sharp spikes in demand for more video?

In this webinar you will learn:

  • Resolved challenges in video transcoding, virtualization, and maximizing channel densities
  • Leveraging the Intel Iris Pro Graphics Engines with Media Server Development Kit
  • The complete package using highly scalable HA converged infrastructure COTS servers

IoT applications in every industry are abounding. Embedded systems, tools, and cloud services companies are responding with a variety of hardware, software, and development kits to accelerate IoT development. Is the IoT application itself represent enough differentiation? Or must there be features and capabilities within the app to provide differentiation at the cost of time to market? Join us as a panel of IoT experts discuss buy versus innovate trade-offs with IoT application to balance differentiation with time to market pressures.
