Future of Broadcasting 2017: Sky and Conviva Case Study

One key observation is that “You cannot manage, what you cannot measure” and having insight into the video player behaviour is essential to optimise the viewing experience.

I was invited to present a joint case study by Sky and Conviva at the Future of Broadcasting conference in London. Where we describe how we saved up to 4,500 streaming sessions by automatically detecting and moving them to another CDN with our CDN selector capability.

For example, if a customer is unable to sustain a consistent 5Mbps throughput on their home broadband connection, the player will automatically step down to a lower bitrate and sometimes also to a lower screen resolution.

We take our customers streaming quality of experience very seriously and have four key streaming performance indicators that we constantly monitor.

  • Buffering Ratio of under 0.4% per hour.
  • Average Bitrate.
  • Video Start Failure.
  • Exit Before Video Start.

 

The slides are available below;

I’d like to thank Ed and Lindsey at Conviva for their assistance.

Next Generation TV Forum – Does network control make a difference for delivering a great TV over IP experience?

I was invited to speak on two panels at the Next Generation TV Forum conference in London on the 14th June with the second one on the topic of “Does network control make a difference for delivering a great TV over IP experience?”. This was a very technical panel and one of the interesting points that came up was the idea of extending network control to within the home. The reasoning for this is that in typical UK households with our colder winters, WiFi range especially at the 2.4Ghz band can be limited by the building. With the Sky Q box and mesh networking, your Q box becomes a wireless hotspot, thus extending the WiFi range and improving the customer experience for in home entertainment.

• What do consumers consider is a ‘good’ TV/video experience?
• Do you need to own a network to keep control over content delivery
• How to scale for large but volatile TV audience

Moderator: 

• Nigel Walley, Managing Director, Decipher
My fellow panelists were;

• Anthony Berkeley, Business Development VP, Nokia
• Ben Schwarz, Founder & Owner, CTOiC
• Matt Stagg, Head of Mobile Video & Content, EE
