Digital TV Europe to host webinar on Cloud DVR

Digital TV Europe will host a webinar on the topic of Cloud DVR on Tuesday April 7 at 3pm BST.

The future of Cloud DVR should be viewed in the context of larger ecosystems and lifestyle changes. If cDVR grew out of the necessity to support time-shifting (recording and replaying as opposed to live viewing content) and place-shifting (viewing on any device in any location with any screen-size), then what happens in an evolving world where 5G goes from infancy to ubiquity?

Join us for an in-depth analysis and discussion around Cloud DVR design and implementation, based on new research from Omdia and expert insights from MediaKind.

To introduce this webinar, Merrick Kingston, Associate Director, Research & Analysis, Digital Media & Video Technology at Omdia, will touch upon the following topics and themes:

  • What are the key features and functionality of a modern Cloud DVR?
  • What are the technical challenges of Cloud DVR, and what are the solutions?
  • What do service providers need to think about when designing a Cloud DVR?
  • How can media companies monetise Cloud DVR?

In the second part of the presentation, MediaKind’s Meir Lehrer, Vice President, Portfolio Development and Stuart Boorn, Vice President, Product Management will outline some of the technical challenges impacting today’s Cloud DVR market, and how these factors will influence decision-making in the space. The session will address:

  • The effects of the COVID-19 outbreak on media habits through remote-working and remote-learning from the home
  • Imminent changes to media viewing through the growth of 5G – and the creative challenges that technology and service providers must make to evolve and adapt
  • The way CPE suppliers are adjusting to new consumer lifestyles – and the challenges of delivering high quality content to connected devices at scale
  • The future of next-generation cloud DVR, on-demand and time/place-shifted services
