Videoscape Europe


DVB’s chair Peter MacAvock will participate in a “fireside chat” panel session at this special online-only edition of Videoscape Europe.

Title: The road to all-streaming, and what post-broadcast looks like
Moderator: John Moulding, Editor-in-Chief, Videonet
Panellists: Peter MacAvock, Chair, DVB; Jason Thibeault, Executive Director, Streaming Video Alliance; Phil Layton, Head of Broadcast & Connected Systems
BBC, Research & Development; Martijn van Horssen, CEO, 24i.
Date: Thursday 11 June, 17:10–17:40 CEST

John Moulding will talk to Peter MacAvock about DVB’s latest work around online service discovery, multicast ABR and low-latency streaming. Key questions will include:

  • Does 5G and smart Wi-Fi obviate the need for better video compression? Will DVB-mABR be the norm for popular linear streaming? How do we lower streaming latency further?
  • How will viewers discover content in an all-streaming future: will EPGs still exist, and what are the implications for broadcaster ‘prominence’?
  • How do we increase capacity and lower costs for CDNs, and what architectural innovations can make them dramatically more efficient?
  • What will the post-broadcast world look like –will we watch everything through apps, will all channels be D2C, who will aggregate content?
