Whilst broadcasters' OTT “catch-up” services are well established – linear, particularly live, TV presents a significant and costly audience scaling challenge. In this session, we will hear from service providers with first-hand experience of tackling both this technical issue and also the future challenges that OTT delivery will face from immersive media such as VR.

Tom Maule,  Solution Architect, Sky, United Kingdom, "BUILDING SCALABLE AND RESILIENT OTT SERVICES AT SKY"

Richard Bradbury, Lead Technologist, BBC Research & Development, United Kingdom, "A SCALABLE DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM FOR BROADCASTING OVER IP NETWORKS"
