The World Of OTT (Infrastructure Pt9) - Minimizing OTT Churn Rates Through Viewer Engagement October 14th 2021 - 09:00 AM

The basic goal is for consumers of video services to be highly engaged. It is easy to say but hard to do. Yet it is at the core of being a D2C streamer. D2C requires a deep understanding of the end customer’s satisfaction. But rather than this understanding relating only to the content itself, at which Broadcasters have excelled for many decades, a D2C streaming service requires an understanding of satisfaction with the service – the quality of it, the ease of use, the style of use – which requires the right technology and a focused information-gathering approach.

Although latency and resource coordination continue to challenge those considering cloud-based remote live production, the distributed architecture model is steadily gaining traction as a cost-effective alternate to hardware-based on-premise projects. To date this IT-centric architecture has not been deployed for high-profile productions like the Super Bowl or World Cup, but remote IP-video contribution, production and distribution has allowed second-tier sporting events to be televised globally whereas they might not be - due to cost and fully remote access - using traditional production methods.
