NAB 2017: Akamai Focuses on OTT, On Demand Offerings
Akamai Technologies will emphasize the “Audience of You” mission to help deliver the best possible experience for every over-the-top (OTT) video viewer at NAB 2017 (booth SL3324).
Live demonstrations at Akamai’s booth will feature device-level innovations such as Media Acceleration, which uses technology integrated directly into consumer OTT applications designed to enhance the performance of media delivered over the Akamai network and optimize the viewing experience for each individual end user.
Also look for on-demand and new live workflow solutions, highlighted by the addition of liveOrigin capabilities to Akamai’s Media Services Live, purpose-built from the ground up specifically to support the rigors of 24/7 live/linear streaming and today’s OTT viewer expectations through features such as accelerated ingest, low-latency and DVR functionality. Proactive monitoring and measurement capabilities through the Akamai Broadcast Operations Control Center (BOCC) and its Broadcast Operations Support System (BOSS) Media Analytics tools, will provide operational insight and telemetry from origin to viewer for unprecedented control and transparency into video operations and performance. And new, immersive viewing experiences including live and on-demand virtual and augmented reality and sub-second latency, and technology innovations to help deliver those experiences online.
