The first of four webinars will be available at 2pm GMT tomorrow via TVBEurope

In partnership with our sister publication TVBEurope, Akamai is set to deliver a series of four free webinars starting tomorrow, 5 October at 14:00 GMT.

Tomorrow's first 15 minute session, ‘OTT 2.0: Demystifying the workflow', will offer guidance on how to deliver a reliable, scalable and high-performing OTT service, avoiding any hiccups along the way.

Peter Chave, Akamai’s principal architect for linear OTT workflow solutions, will cover building an OTT service from the ground up, transitioning existing infrastructure to support a new OTT business model, and creating a highly integrated live or on-demand video workflow. 

The remaining three webinars, ‘Video Quality and Performance to Drive Viewer Engagement’, ‘BOCC – increasing visibility and understanding’ and ‘The Promise of the Cloud’ will become available throughout October and November, with further details to be revealed by TVBEurope in the coming weeks.

"’Navigating the OTT 2.0 Landscape’ (webinar in June) set the scene, talking about where we see the industry going, where we see the big changes happening, both in terms of workflow and workflow technology,” said Ian Munford, Akamai's director of product enablement and marketing media services.

“The series are essentially that in detail – how we can deal with the next generation of challenges, sharing best practice. We take almost every aspect of the chain, deconstruct it, and look at it on the basis of where we are now and where we need to be tomorrow.”
