The first part of this article explained the set of requirements that appear in the most modern OTT Services from broadcasters launching their own App-based services in the 2020s. Here we inspect those requirements in the two broad areas of Content Monetization and Content Delivery.
Most national broadcasters in developed countries have app-based OTT services, many of which have been in place for over a decade. Less-developed national broadcasters still rely on YouTube, Social Media platforms, or their own websites to deliver OTT content to their audience.
With fewer exhibits and smaller crowds, the 2022 NAB Show aisles were easier to navigate and exhibitors had more time to speak with visitors.
Many annual NAB Shows have become milestones in TV broadcasting history. The presence of the 2022 NAB Show marked the first Las Vegas NAB Show since 2019.
As specialist broadcast service providers and network operators look at the fast growing requirement for at-scale broadcast-grade streaming video, it is a big opportunity for them to address.
People visit NAB Shows for many reasons. Some are there to investigate and examine new solutions. Some are shopping with a budget ready to spend.

Broadcast service providers providing live production, contribution, playout and transmission services have observed the continuous and accelerating movement towards OTT services.
The purpose of the new Video Delivery Network model is to provide high-performing capacity with economies of scale for the benefit of (potentially) all broadcasters in a geographic location.
