Media Services –Solving the Live and On Demand Workflow Puzzle
Akamai’s delivery network offers tremendous reliability, scale and performance for video streaming. But there is also a complex world of workflow for live and on demand streaming. This workflow includes ingesting live video or uploading on demand video, preparing video effectively for streaming (transcoding and packaging), inserting and measuring advertising, securing the content, captioning and subtitling the content, etc. The focus of this session is industry observations and best practices in the video workflow based on Akamai’s experience working with an incredibly broad range of media companies across the globe. Special attention will be paid to the aspects of reliability, scale and performance in the video workflow process and how that should present itself to the distribution network. Some demos of current or coming technology of Akamai’s Media Services Live and Media Services On Demand products will highlight how those products help solve the workflow challenges of today and tomorrow.
