Live television streaming has been an agenda item at many companies’ meetings for quite a while. There are questions and options to consider that are different from more traditional distribution outlets. How does the budget for a live TV production for the web compare to that of traditional delivery mechanisms? How do available streaming codecs and wrappers compare? What about the FCC, closed captions and other such concerns? Please join our guest speaker, John Naylor as he answers these questions and explores other issues relating to content distribution over the web, including uplink considerations, content management, delivery, trans-rating, trans-coding, multi-bitrate support.
