What if you had to stream 55K live events a year at scale? Find out how by attending this SMPTE DC section meeting at Verizon Media.
Comprised of multiple acquisitions that include Yahoo, AOL, the Edgecast CDN and Uplink cloud encoding platform, Verizon Media is the OTT service and delivery division within Verizon.
Based in Dulles Virginia, Verizon Media Live Event Operations provides OTT event management to a wide range of clients. While the Uplink platform allows clients to ingest, manage and distribute events on their own, LiveOps adds value to enterprise class broadcasters by bringing scale to their live content. Publishing, on average, about 55,000 live events, in the last three years, the Dulles Virginia group is well versed in everything from concerts and music festivals to more than 76 types of sporting events worldwide. Not only are we well versed in managing 20-30 ISO camera and production feeds for the Super Bowl but also manage Pop Warner Youth Football games. Our staff is comprised of veteran broadcast personnel from all the top television networks due to the fact that our OTT workflows are quite similar to legacy broadcast control room environments.
On September 19th, we will provide an overview of how our platform works; What its components are and how they function as a single service solution that is unique throughout the industry.
After the meeting presentations a tour of Verizon Media will be provided.
Please register for this event here. Sign up quickly. Attendance is free but limited to the first 50 registrants.
Parking in front and back of the building as well as in the garage is Free.
