The media OTT world is getting increasingly crowded. Disney’s video-on-demand streaming service launch in 2020 attracted 10 million subscribers in its first 24 hours in just the US, Canada and Netherlands. Subscription video-on-demand platforms such as Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime Video have accumulated millions of monthly active users and provide access to a variety of movies, TV shows, and documentaries at the click of a button.
There’s no doubt media consumption has increased substantially in digital formats, with the lockdown accelerating this trend.
Media companies and broadcasters are experiencing decreased visibility & control in their supply chain. Increased focus on global distribution, proliferation of direct to consumer OTT services & viewer experiences and content that gets delivered over many different on-prem and cloud-based platforms, go along with a whole new set of challenges to ensure the best quality of experience (QoE) for your audience.
In this session, Ken and Thomas share how Telestream and Skyline Communications have teamed up and built a solution that allows you to spin up new cloud-based OTT services with just a few clicks and to automate your video monitoring from production to distribution.

Once upon a time, content was all that mattered for a streaming service to be successful.
It’s still the main concern, of course. But with the proliferation of streaming services, it’s no longer enough. Great content at the right price lets you in the game; great quality of experience differentiates you.
But delivering a high quality of experience on an OTT platform can be a challenge. And the challenges are intensifying with the emergence of next-generation video formats – with 4K and HDR entering distribution streams and a potentially embracing surround viewing, virtual and other extended-reality formats, volumetric holographic content and, eventually, 8K.
