The Road to All-Streaming

Seligman Theatre
Thursday 19 March 2020
11:45 – 13:15

This year, the DVB unveiled its standards-based streaming showcase, ready for life after broadcasting. The best-of-breed ecosystem enables the delivery of something that looks like television in an all-streaming world, combining DVB-I with standards-led approaches to multicast ABR and low-latency streaming. Think DVB-T for the post-broadcast age. So, what is the road to all-streaming? This session explores the technologies we need for satellite TV to go dish-less and ‘terrestrial’ to ditch the aerials. Better compressed video, next-generation CDN, low-latency streaming, M-ABR and other relevant technologies are on the agenda. We want to know what post-broadcast will look like to consumers, too. Will they watch everything through apps? What prominence will broadcasters enjoy? Will all channels be D2C? Who will aggregate our content?

Fireside chat: What will the post-broadcast world look like?

In this interview, Rebekah will reflect on her time in leadership functions with the launch teams for CBS All Access and HBO Go, and the running of YouTube TV, and discuss the challenges, successes and her vision of what the post-broadcast, future TV will look like.

Panel: The road to all-streaming, and what post-broadcast looks like

  • The DVB is encouraging a standards-based approach to streaming service discovery, multicast-ABR and low-latency streaming – but do we need it?
  • Does 5G and smart Wi-Fi obviate the need for better video compression; Will m-ABR be the norm for popular linear streaming; How do we lower streaming latency further?
  • How will viewers discover content in an all-streaming future: will EPGs still exist, and what are the implications for broadcaster ‘prominence’?
  • How do we increase capacity and lower costs for CDNs, and what architectural innovations can make them dramatically more efficient?
  • What will the post-broadcast world look like –will we watch everything through apps, will all channels be D2C, who will aggregate content…?
  • How far are we from a streaming-only Olympics or World Cup?
