Building a compelling, easy-to-use multiscreen service is a difficult endeavor. It requires the time and expertise to evaluate different network configurations, choose network equipment, integrate disparate systems, and determine how to make money on the resulting infrastructure. That’s all very resource- and capital-intensive.
To attract and retain subscribers in this multiscreen world, service providers have to enable access to video content anytime, anywhere, on a variety of popular consumer devices, which is why there are a growing number of vendors offering or preparing to provide multiscreen with cloud-based solutions.
The approach makes multiscreen largely an opex proposition and focuses service provider capex investments on the strategic components that provide a differentiated quality of experience for their subscribers.
This webcast will address a number of critical questions, including:
• What are the elements of a multiscreen system (video processing, encoding, transcoding, packaging, ad insertion, authentication, CDN, etc.)?
• What elements should service providers implement on their network, and which can leverage cloud-based solutions?
• What are the pros and cons associated with each build or cloud decision?
• What service options are there? Multiscreen? TV Everywhere? Network DVR?
