"In this IABM TV interview, we are joined by Todd Erdley, President at Videon to hear how they are transforming and impacting the streaming market and the opportunities that are available. Todd tells us about Videon’s recent funding and how they are planning to use this investment along with what’s coming up for them on the innovation side. Finally, Todd talks to us about the Videon culture and what makes them unique."
During this talk, Todd Erdley, Founder and President of Videon, walks viewers through how edge computing for live video can create a unified experience for live sports betting users.
With an influx of digital and live streamed opportunities since the beginning of the pandemic, the need to provide accurate and precise information is critical. To help combat this issue, Videon recently released LiveEdge, a premium platform-as-a-service (PaaS) solution that adds feature enhancements, customization options, and intelligent automation to Videon’s video compute platform.
With the growth, variety, and criticality of video – the ways in which we capture, process, and distribute video streams are changing. Today, video producers and consumers want more control over the process. This includes technical aspects such as resolutions, latency, workflows, and a myriad of other factors. However, just as important are the ways video is distributed. This overview is the starting point to discuss how the power of edge computing at the video source is set to revolutionize how video can be handled in broadcast.
For industry leaders in sports data analytics, receiving and analyzing live video feeds from an extensive array of sports events with ultra-low latency is mission-critical. Learn how a Video Compute Platform leverages KLV metadata to deliver ultra-low latency live video streams enhanced with accurate video origin timestamps for the first time.
While live sports continues to single-handedly prop up traditional broadcast television, it also is on the cusp of a major breakout in the avenue of live streaming. Quicker, more efficient delivery of live video is driving more interactive live experiences that will drive greatest engagement and far greater business opportunities. How are sports rights holders evolving their offerings in the area of fan content, sports betting, and more as latency improves at scale?
For the first time, we have decided to extend an invitation to the industry to join these collaborative conversations. We envision Todd Talks as an opportunity for Videon employees, partners, customers, resellers, and distributors to join us for a live virtual discussion with industry thought leaders to advance live video together.
Our President and Founder, Todd Erdley, and Bitmovin’s Senior Product Manager, Paul Macklin, demystify the technical challenges single function encoders, software solutions like OBS, and laptops pose to business-critical live video streams. They dive into how emerging hybrid:cloud architectures, utilizing edge computing at the video source, are a reliable, high-quality, ultra-low latency commercial-grade alternative that can support live video streaming for any vertical, including live sports.
