HTML5, Google Chromecast, and the upcoming OTT World Summit

The OTT World Summit is almost upon us (it actually kicks off on November 19), and it looks like a very strong event indeed. In IP&TV’s book one of the most exciting opportunities on offer is the second successive pre-OTTtv World Summit workshop on the future of HTML5 and User Interfaces, ran by none other than Google’s Matt Frost, Head of Strategy and Media of Google’s Chrome team.

Covering topics such as the role of adaptive streaming, the future of MPEG DASH, and the challenges of content production, it would already be looking like a compelling event, but in an industry keen to know as much as it can about Google Chromecast, an already-hot ticket becomes that much hotter.

In general the workshop will be focusing on video strategy for the web platform. He will be examining how Google’s approach to HTML5 will solve many of the problems content owners currently face, with its evolution on the Chrome platform creating a major opportunity for broadcasters and OTT players.

Now in its seventh year, the OTTtv World Summit is the major OTT focused event in the calendar. Continually attracting the biggest CXO names to its speaker line-up, OTT World Summit is the place to discuss and shape the future of the multiplatform entertainment industry.
