There has been a buzz over the past few years around latency in streaming, showing very promising improvements. These are all focused around CMAF, but is CMAF practical today in your current environments? In this session, Koen van Benschop, Senior Manager TV Headend and DRM at Deutsche Telekom will explore whether we can we achieve 80% of the latency savings at 10% of the cost in 10% of the time? Stefan Arbanowski, Director Future Applications and Media at Fraunhofer FOKUS will link this to the future, starting by demystifying some things about CMAF and provide you with some insight on where CMAF currently stands. Together, this may help you with some decisions on your next steps in OTT distribution.
Nordic TV is a content service of Elisa that launched in Mainland China in December 2018. Starting from the Shenzhen area, Nordic TV has already rolled out to seven regions. Lean startup methods are being used for understanding consumer needs, as the Chinese market was unfamiliar for Elisa from before. With Nordic TV, Elisa is offering a growing catalogue of video-based content, consisting of titles by its partners in the Nordics and other Europe, but also of original co-productions made by Elisa. Machine learning supports cost-efficient translation of content.
In this interview, Kristian Waneck from DR in Denmark, talks to Eric Schumacher Rasmussen about the consumer habits that drove major changes to the UX of OTT service DR TV. When young audiences are turning away from linear TV, what is the relevance of ‘catchup’? What’s in store for operators in the future?
In this interview, Sanna Nilsson from SF Anytime and SF Kids in Sweden talks to Eric Schumacher Rasmussen about what competitive advantages smaller local players have against Netflix, Apple and Disney, and how to capitalise on those. She also touches on the importance of psychology in understanding user needs and behaviour and how it can influence better products.
In this interview, Jessica Andersson from Com Hem in Sweden talks to Eric Schumacher Rasmussen about the balance between cooperation and competition. From a technical perspective, all types of content handling, from ingest to metadata is standardised somehow, so it makes sense to cooperate on that side. We should still compete in areas where we can, in terms of offering, content partnerships and ways to distribute content.
In this interview, Henke Erichsen, CTO/CIO of Canal Digital talks to Eric Schumacher Rasmussen about the future of television. He believes we will see a stronger shift from linear to on-demand, broadcasters and distributors will still be relevant as content aggregators, and Netflix will continue to have a strong foothold. Although collaboration between key players in the industry is not a new topic, Henke hopes to be able to celebrate the first successful distributor collaboration in Norway by Northern Waves 2020.
In this interview, Jérôme Franck Sætervoll, CEO of RiksTV, talks to Eric Schumacher Rasmussen about rapidly changing consumer habits. Customers today are in the driving seat of the evolution of TV technology, and they expect more features and updated services faster than ever before. Jérôme talks about the need for different players in the TV value chain to collaborate in order to provide better offerings.
In this interview, Marius Sonvoll Haugen from Telia talks to Eric Schumacher about the future of television. According to Marius, technology innovation is slowing down, while the pace of change in business models is increasing. What else is in store for the future? Will it require cooperation to get there?
In this interview, Anette Mellbye, Digital Strategy Leader in Norway, talks to Eric Schumacher Rasmussen about the difference between digitalisation and digital transformation. Companies today need to transform their business models, as opposed to using digital as a tool to increase efficiencies of the current business model. In order to stay ahead of the curve, companies will have to work closer with their partners, and change continuously.
