OTT and UHD HDR Innovation: Thierry Fautier, vice president of video strategy at Harmonic and president of the Ultra HD Forum, will lead two presentations at the BEITC. The first session, “How OTT Services Can Match the Quality of Broadcast,” will analyze the current challenges involved with delivering live OTT services and describe solutions that are available today, such as content-aware encoding, artificial intelligence and low-latency CMAF.
