Third Virtual Event in STREAMup Series Focuses on Measurement

FREMONT, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Streaming Video Alliance (the Alliance), a global technical association developing solutions to address critical technical challenges in delivering a high-quality video experience at scale, is hosting its first Europe STREAMup on Tuesday, November 17, 2020, from 4:30 to 6:00pm GMT. The virtual meetup is available to both members and non-members and though it is scheduled to accommodate the streaming community in Europe, it is open to all who would like to participate.

“Our first two STREAMups tackled device fragmentation and then content challenges. This third and final STREAMup of the year takes on the issues associated with measurement,” said Jason Thibeault, Executive Director at the Alliance. “What the industry is discovering is that having both a high-level view of streaming performance and granular details about individual user sessions and workflows is very difficult. This issue is compounded by the growing complexity of streaming workflows and fragmentation of devices. Our speakers have real-world experience tackling the problems within this critical area of streaming.”

The Europe STREAMup is sponsored by member companies ATEME, Broadpeak, and Qwilt. The two technical presentations will share the presenters’ challenges with measuring various aspects of streaming, whether within the workflow or at the player level, and how they overcame these issues. The meetup will conclude with a Star Trek trivia session and a social hour hosted in an 8-bit virtual environment.

The Europe STREAMup presentations will feature:

  • Brenton Ough of Touchstream: “Top 5 Elements for Effective CDN Monitoring” which will explore how to best monitor CDN performance, availability, etc.
  • Ken Haren of Telestream: “End-to-End Monitoring from the Cloud.”
