Broadpeak to Speak on Benefits of Multicast ABR and Multi-CDN Technologies at Streaming Media East

RENNES, France — May 11, 2017 — Broadpeak today announced that its vice president of marketing, Nivedita Nouvel, will speak at the Content Delivery Summit and Live Streaming Summit, which will take place during Streaming Media East in New York City.

THE NEWS:

At Streaming Media East, Nouvel will present “How Diversity Adds to a Good Multi-CDN Strategy” as part of the Content Delivery Summit and “How Multicast ABR Is Liberating Live TV Delivery to Multiscreen” during the Live Streaming Summit.

WHEN:

The Content Delivery Summit presentation is scheduled for Monday, May 15 from 1:30 to 1:50 p.m. The Live Streaming Summit presentation will take place Tuesday, May 16 from 4:30 to 5:00 p.m.

WHERE:

New York Hilton Midtown

WHY:

Today’s content providers are finding it challenging to deliver a high-quality user experience over managed networks and OTT. They need state-of-the-art technologies for live streaming and traditional content delivery.

WHAT:

When it comes to selecting a CDN for video delivery services, there is never one ideal option that fits every need. The CDN performances vary in time, with the geographic location, and with the network service provider used by subscribers. The Content Delivery Summit presentation will examine the benefits of a multi-CDN strategy and focus on how it can be enhanced with technologies that go beyond mere CDN switching.

Adaptive bitrate (ABR) is a revolutionary technology that has created the ability for OTT delivery of video to all screens. But it has one major drawback: The network resources it consumes grow linearly with the audience. The Live Streaming Summit presentation will show how multicast ABR brings true scalability to live multiscreen video distribution, with enhanced quality of service and greatly reduced latency.

WHO: Prior to working at Broadpeak, Nouvel held product management positions at Envivio and Thomson. She has an engineering degree from IMT Atlantique (formerly Télécom Bretagne) and Master of Science degree in Satellite Communications from UCL, London.
