Finding the Profits in Converged Video Services
As the delivery of converged video services across TVs, PCs
and handhelds continues to grow, operators and broadcasters need to make
content accessible on all these devices quickly, efficiently and
cost-effectively. Standalone and one-off
solutions quickly become unaffordable and block efficiency gains in a
multi-screen world. This panel session
will explore the successful technologies and business models for a multi-screen
world through case studies outlining what operators are doing and a lively
discussion of the technologies needed to reduce CAPEX/OPEX and make efficient
use of bandwidth.
