In An Industry Full of Conferences, SEGMENTS Focuses on Practical Solutions

At SVTA SEGMENTS, you’ll learn how to solve key technical challenges, gather best practices for delivering the best viewer experience at scale, and network with some of the brightest folks in streaming video on the planet.

Addressing the Entire Streaming Video Workflow

SVTA SEGMENTS is an exciting, one-day public conference, organized by the Streaming Video Technology Alliance as a walk through the streaming video workflow. Beginning with acquisition/ingest and ending with playback/analytics, you’ll learn from streaming video experts about best practices, technologies, and techniques to deliver the best possible viewer experience at scale. Streaming Video Technology Alliance working groups will present about their current projects in 5-minute “lightning talks” throughout the day. With built-in networking time, you’ll also get to collaborate with colleagues. And the best part? You don’t have to be an SVTA member to attend! This event is open to the entire industry.

No! The SEGMENTS conference is open to the general public. We’re sure that a lot of SVTA member company employees will be in attendance so it’s a great opportunity to speak with people who are active in the organization to find out if you should join!

No! Anyone can submit a proposal to be on our stage. Our committee will review submissions anonymously to determine the best fit.

Absolutely. Simply fill out the form to tell us about your topic and preferred track. Note: SEGMENTS is not a pay-to-speak event. We have a designated committee who will review speaking submissions to pull together the best possible program for attendees.

The short answer is, “no.” Registration and attendance of SEGMENTS does not entitle you to attend the SVTA member meeting which is held immediately following the conference. But, the SVTA does afford a certain number of “guests” at each meeting. If you are serious about becoming a member and would like to attend the meeting, please let us know as soon as you register so that we can discuss a guest pass.

The SVTA is a non-profit, non-equity, 501 (c)(6) organization incorporated in the state of Delaware. The SVTA is governed by the Board of Directors and managed by an experienced team. The SEGMENTS conference is organized and run by the SVTA.
