Partake in food and drink at our informal gathering with Wowza Media Systems. Wowza will cover ‘Which Live Video Streaming Infrastructure Fits You Best: On Premises, in the Cloud, or Both?’
There are as many ways to stream live video as there are opportunities to do so. Yet all too often organizations are dissuaded from the seemingly daunting task of deciding how to deploy video streaming technology. As video format and infrastructure requirements continuously evolve, and the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) and over-the-top (OTT) trends increases, organizations are left scratching their heads wondering which workflow best meets their needs.
Deciding between on-premises and cloud-based video streaming workflows comes down to what you want in terms of functionality, total cost of ownership, and customization. Don’t let the decision keep you from streaming sporting events, concerts, news conferences, company meetings, and other real-time content to new and growing audiences. To know which option is the best fit, you need a strong understanding of the benefits and risks of deploying streaming solutions on premises, using the cloud, and mixing and matching the two to create a hybrid option.
Join Ryan Jespersen, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Wowza Media Systems, as demonstrations streaming technology in action and dives into the motivations, methods, pitfalls, and benefits of choosing an on-premises, cloud-based, or hybrid video streaming workflow.

Start with cocktails, munchies, and networking, followed by brief company and product intros, and finish with more socializing.
