Join Us for Streaming Forum Connect
We weren't able to gather in London as usual this year for Streaming Forum, but next week we'll be taking the pulse of the streaming industry with Streaming Forum Connect, a series of panel discussions and presentations looking at sports streaming, live streaming, and the OTT market from a distinctly UK- and Euro-centric perspective.
We'll kick things off at 10 a.m. BST/11 a.m. CET with a discussion of "Innovations in Sports Streaming," featuring Damien Cullen, senior content innovations manager at The FA; Matthew Quinn, VP media technology and delivery at Liverpool Football Club; and Natxo Imaz Erdoiza, digital CTO at Grupo Mediapro. We'll be looking at everything from interactivity to new rights models to technical innovations like 3D graphics and AI enhancements, all of which are revolutionizing the sports streaming landscape.
Next, at 12 p.m. BST/1 p.m. CET, we'll be talking "Live Streaming in the 'New Normal," which looks at how the COVID-19 pandemic has forced live streaming producers to adapt to truly at-home production and provide viewers with experiences that bring them some of the thrill of being at a sporting or cultural event in person. We'll be joined by Chris Dabbs, who founded Streaming Tank (one of the very first streaming agencies) and now heads Broadcast 360, a full-service video creative and production agency; and Larry Gale, who headed live production at Boiler Room until he struck out on his own earlier this year.
We'll wrap things up at 2 p.m. BST/1 p.m. CET with a presentation from Ben Keen, one of the UK and Europe's leading OTT analysts and researchers. His talk, "How to Compete in an Overcrowded OTT Market," will offer crucial data and insights into the ever-more complicated OTT field, and you'll walk away with key tips for how nascent services can compete with giants like Netflix, Amazon, and Disney+.
