In this fastpaced session we will create new content at higher quality and with smaller file size, and then deliver it adaptively, crossplatform and cross-device. Learn how to use SharePoint to deliver live and on-demand media and see how you can serve content directly from your SharePoint database or media servers and learn about using SharePoint as your primary media portal, with built-in media players that work across multiple platforms. If you are seeking cloud-based media solutions we will investigate reduced infrastructure costs and simplified delivery using Microsoft Azure. Finally we tie it all together with a new content management solution that integrates IIS Smooth Streaming, Silverlight Media Framework, SharePoint, Video Editor, Ad Insertion and more.

Advertising dollars are shifting from TV to online video advertising and the segment is the fastest growing online advertising category. Online video advertising is expected to grow by more than 20% in Europe in 2011. We will show you how it's done in this overview of online video advertising technologies and techniques with a European and global focus. Learn about all of the techniques from in-stream, overlay, in-banner video, emerging technologies, and which ones are best for your brand. See how your video and ads can generate revenue as they are linked to social media sites and premium video sites, and how mobile video advertising can grow your brand on multiple devices. User targeting, metrics, and analytics are key to any advertising campaign and we will look at how to determine viewer interaction, engagement time, and video completion rates. We will show you the major video advertising networks, ad server technologies, and how they work in live session demonstrations.
