Adi, sorry to be slow.  Yes, I am thinking of new channels and deliverable networks.

Platinum

Thanks for the session!

Steel

Thank you for the invite!

Steel

Thanks everyone! 

Author

good day to all :) 

Platinum

Thanks Adi. How about we wrap it up with the results from the device poll at the start? I guess no surprise that TV was the winner? 

Author

It will be a mix. I think the US has been a leader initially, but the rights issues might actually be holding back innovation in some cases. It's often easier to get access to local content in other regions - the more developed the TV market, the more expensive the content. So we may see more interesting applications in places like China. Europe has developed differently, but I'm not sure I would say it is "behind" the US today. And thene there's just issues of capacity - networks in Korea (south, in case you were wondering), japan Singapore, HK are very fast and we are seeing a lot of innovation there. So I don't think it will be regional necessarily.

Author

DHagar - are you suggesting that content acquisition etc. become web based when you say eco-system?

 

Author

Thanks everyone for joining. Here's another question from earlier on: 

Because of the more open environment with digital rights overseas, do we expect the US to be the leader, or will overseas providers lead?

Author

I am thinking about the OTT being the consumer access to a combined video capability that is part of an ecosystem?

Platinum

I see VR as a sort of special events type of applications - to be used either for specific events or activities. As you point out there's a huge technology challenge but also there are issues with headsets. One of the reasons for the failure of 3D as a home technology was the need for glasses. Jury is still out on how comfortable consumers will be with headsets. So maybe VR will work for very specific types of comms - medical maybe - but I don't see it working broadly for a while yet

 

Author

Adi, Mike thank you for the show and many things coming along in the next 4 to 6 years! 

Steel

That was great Mike and Adi.  Great vision and insight about the future with big video!

Platinum

Great show Mike and Adi. Learned a lot.

Platinum

Adi, here's a questions from below: Is virtual reality ever going to make it as a commercial communications service? That's a whole other ballgame in terms of latency and required capacity, right?

Author

@LightRay agreed! Thanks, Adi and Mike!

Author

Great chat -- I feel that needs a sequal!

Author

No, not too many but content will have to be tailored,improved

Steel

content providers don't want the content to leave your closed netork.

Steel

This was really good. Thank you!!!!

Steel

Mike, yes.  That's where I believe his comments about forming alliances and building new ecosystems is the way forward.

Platinum

Vote in the TT poll on right side of page!

Author

No. The lesser of the bunch always drop off but they can add interesting ideas.

Steel

The general public wont know what OTT stands for

Not too many, but there will need to be more aggregation options. Long live the bundle!

Gold

this is not an option on the poll but.... every market has a different number of OTT options -- If 1,000 people in the general publci were asked, tghey would probably say they'd like more OTT options

 

Author

Have other OTT providers been as successful as Netflix in creating original content?

Author

I don't see consolidation because of the customization aspect. Advertising.

Steel

Not too many - good to have options

Author

Europe is already leading.

 

Steel

Poll: Are there too many OTT providers and are we headed for consolidation? Yes, No, reason why

Author

Because of the more open environment with digital rights overseas, do we expect the US to be the leader, or will overseas providers lead?

Platinum

Live kitchen feed is an interesting idea!

Author
What kind of testings phases would like to see
Steel

digital rights seem to be less of an issue overseas. 

Author

Found a picture of Mr. Kishore in front of a screen displaying "The Big Video Picture" at: http://www.telcotransformation.com/document.asp?site=telcotransformation&doc_id=724645&image_number=6

Maybe this is a document which could be made available to viewers?

Thanks,

Steel

That makes sense, Mike - which opens up the markets further.

Platinum

Getting the digital rights has been our biggest challenge in streaming video.

Steel

@pl2002 that's interesting, thanks for sharing!

Author

Cablevision has put UI into the cloud. makes for cheaper STBs, among other things.

Author

Yes, I am thinking about the integration he is talking about (which is great) with the cloud.  And will video move beyond entertainment and become a "connected" communication that is part of a network?

Platinum

Build your own tv schedule changes broadcasting

Platinum

Regarding curved TV's, we have them at work as well as seeing a few models sold at COSTCO.  It does add a new dimension when you are pretty close to the screens.

 

Steel

@Michelle same here, I held out a long time for a deal on a smart TV

Author

periscope/fb live but better? Interesting

Platinum

@Kelsey good question. I never had any interest in curved TVs. I don't upgrade TVs every few years anyway... I especially avoid trendy TVs

Platinum

@dhagar, do you mean beyond CCTV for security?

Platinum

Wonder what happened with those curved TV's...did they ever take off in the market?

Author

It's amazing we're in the future and 3D tv is a real thing

Platinum

I am also wondering if we expect video to move beyond entertainment, and become a more utility for communications - public safety, connections with public services (cities), etc.?

Platinum

glad to make this event.

Steel

watching the Olympics!

Platinum

Watch out for Adi's research insights on the site though....

Author

There isn't for this one. 

Author

@Fred and @Hari123 this show is audio only

Platinum

I would think that the content will be the ultimate driver.  Who do you predict will take the lead on that?

Platinum
Was wondering the same thing?
Steel

Q: is there a document to accompany the audio, or to be used as reference material?

Steel

Is virtual reality ever going to make it as a commercial communications service? That's a whole other ballgame in terms of latency and required capacity, right?

Author

@Jared agreed, I was actually bummed when we landed b/c I hadn't finished the movie!

Author

The show will be archived and available immediately after we finish the live interview.

Author

Delta has come a long way; they are by far the best airline for me.

Steel

@Kelsey I didn't know Delta was offering in-flight entertainment like that. Did it cost extra?

Platinum

Downloaded Delta's app on a recent flight - was really nice to be able to watch movies on my phone during the flight!

Author

I agree, laptop and tv for me.

Steel

Probably split for me...TV and iPhone

Author

still the TV set for me - I am a big screen person

Author

I'd say its still TV for me but mobile device is second.

Platinum

I forgot my snacks....but it's too late. Don't want to miss the start

Platinum

Another beutiful day in the San Juan Islands

Steel

@Director same here, just brewed a cup of tea!

Author

Good to be here!

 

Steel

snacks/drink procured.  Ready to start.

Hi @Michelle and @batye

Platinum

Good one @kelsey. I'd like to know if there are certain operators that moving faster to transform their networks to handle the increase in demand for mobile video than others -- and if so, what do those changes look like?

Platinum

@Adi - are consumers watching significantly more long-form video on their mobile devices than say 2 years ago?

Author

The countdown clock is at 8 minutes. Grab your snacks and maybe a drink. We'll be starting sooooon.

Platinum

Very excited for today's radio show!

Steel

Can't wait to hear from Adi! 

Author

Hi from Chicagoland everyone!

Platinum

Good morning/afternoon everyone!  Remember to turn up your volume on the computers.  At the top of the hour an audio player will pop up on your screen.  If you don't see it, try to press F5 to refresh your screen. Remember, there's no slides for this it's just a discussion, so be sure to post your questions, comments and thoughts on the message boards and we will join you on the chat after the audio stream. 

Author

Hello from Washington DC

Steel

Greetings, early birds. 

Platinum

The impact of video is, I think, having as much impact on network planning as virtualization. And then, of course, you can combine the two.... looking forward to this and Adi's ongoing insights.

Author

We have a new poll up folks, addressing a key area for OTT video: business models. We'll talk about it on the show, but feel free to fill it in. It's on the right hand side of the site, a little further down.

Author

Looking forward to tomorrow's show.

@pamuditha, were you using a Chrome browser? We are having audio issues with Chrome but mentioned several times during yesterday's show that there was a gray button you need to click when the audio player comes up. Hopefully this will be fixed by next week. 

Author
I had some issues with joining yesterday's live chat and discussion. Hopefully there will no any issues next week.
